Short Review: Intriguing

Hmmmm, interesting show, this. Patrick McCullagh treats the audience to sleight-of-hand tricks, more trick shuffling than you can pole a stick at, and… not much else.

Don’t get me wrong, this is still an interesting show. It’s just that, in retrospect, there’s not much to it. Some of his shuffling is freaky; he frequently used an up-close camera to display the true meaning of hand-is-quicker-than-the-eye; and his tips on loading the deck in poker games were… useful ;)

So I guess that’s it… if you’re at all interested in the mastery of sleight-of-hand, you could do a lot worse than to catch this show. There’s also some great audience participation (as Michael found out… down $50 soon after the show started).
