Within the art of card magic there are a small group of 'moves' that are considered ESSENTIAL. They are the corner stones of great magic. The basic utensils you need to perform astounding feats with playing cards. And the Elmsley Count is undoubtedly one of them. Master this one simple technique and you can perform some of the most classic magic tricks of all time.
Most famously used to hide the face of one or more cards as you count through a small packet, the Elmsley Count is actually much more versatile and useful than many people realize.

This is a collection of techniques that combine to give you the most natural and deceptive 'bomb proof' Elmsley Count possible. It looks natural, works smoothly and with cards in absolutely any condition.
