For the two or three magicians that actually read this drivel; you probably realize the Dai Vernon Book of Magic is one of the greatest books on magic ever written. I have performed "A Chinese Classic", the third trick in the book most of my life. As written up by Ganson, it is performed seated. I can't do magic seated any more. I've reworked the effect with a few new sleights. That is, new to the effect. The sleights are NOT original with me. I think it will smooth out with rehearsals. You can find the trick on my youtube channel. It's uploading now.
I have cryptically called it, "A Chinese Classic".
It is NOT Castle-worthy yet. About one hundred run-throughs will smooth it out.
