- WISHFUL THINKING - The ultimate Card in Matchbook. An entertaining and mystifying multi-phase closing routine straight out of a professional's act.
- THE ANIMATED RING Based on an Al Baker creation and remarkably easy to do, yet probably the most powerful invisible thread effect yet. As featured in Jon LeClair's The Art of Invisible Thread.
Among the sleights taught are three different secret card folding techniques, including Jamy's own diabolical "Under-the-Spread Fold."
