APPARENT LINKING OF THE CHAIN OF THREE:

If you have succeeded in following the explanation of the Large Ring Twistover Moves for the purpose of bringing about an apparent linking and unlinking of the Chain of Two, you should experience little difficulty in applying the same principle to the Chain of Three.

The state of affairs immediately prior to linking is that the closed Chain hangs from your left fingers whilst the Large Ring is in possession of the audience. When taking the Chain rings into your left hand it is most important that they be arranged in an anti-clock twisted position. To do this, first hang the centre ring from your fingers. Turn the two end rings so far as they will go in an anticlockwise direction and then lift them together to hang from your fingers. It is immaterial whether or not you have other rings in your hand but, if so, the chain rings must obviously be nearer your finger tips.

With your right hand, recover the Large Ring and proceed to execute the Twistover Move almost exactly as described for the purpose of linking the Chain of Two. The only variation is that, in this case, the Large Ring is carried over and behind three rings, whilst the ring which is pulled down into a linked position is the nearer end ring of the chain.

To all appearances, you have linked an examined ring to the nearer of a number of other single rings and, to emphasise this, you turn square on to the audience and extend these two linked rings horizontally across your body. In case you are unfamiliar with this piece of bluff, it must be explained that you have siezed the lower ring at VI with your right hand and that the actual upper ring of the Chain of Three (together with any other rings behind it) has been allowed to fall back against your left forearm. Of course, you maintain a firm left hand grasp at the linking point of middle and upper rings so as not to disclose this link.

The next move—that of linking, apparently, two linked rings to the next ring behind them—is an even more barefaced piece of bluff.

First, release your right hand grip, allow the two visibly linked rings to drop back into their former position and again turn half left. Next, with right thumb and first finger, take the upper of these rings at VI—just a little nearer to you than the linking point—and execute a twirl very similar to the Twistover Move upon the fulcrum formed by the grip of your left thumb and fingers at the linking point of centre and upper rings. You finish this by pulling the ring down into a linked position in relation to the actual upper ring of the chain, so as to exhibit a chain of three linked rings hanging from your left hand.

Conclude by extending the chain horizontally before handing out for examination.

APPARENT UNLINKING OF THE

CHAIN OF THREE :

The initial position is similar to that for apparent unlinking of the Chain of Two except that, in this case, the Chain of Three hangs by an end ring from your left fingers immediately in front of the Large Ring.

The first step is to unlink (apparently) the centre ring from the one above it, for which purpose you sieze the centre ring at VI1 between right first finger, on top, and thumb, underneath, and carry both rings through the Large Ring by means of a twirl identical to that explained in the case of the Chain of Two Unlink. As soon as your right hand grip is exchanged for a grip of the Large Ring, pull it smartly down and over the lower hanging ring.

The position now, as seen by the audience, is thai a chain of two linked rings hangs from your left hand in front of one or more single rings. You have apparently unlinked from the upper ring of such chain another ring which you are now giving for examination.

In reality, the ring immediately behind the upper ring of the chain of two is linked to it, but has been closed and switched for a single (the Large Ring) by the move just described.

The next, and final, step is to unlink (apparently) the remaining two visibly linked rings; and for this purpose the Large Ring must be brought back to its original position. Transfer, therefore, all rings to your right hand whilst the Large Ring is being examined, and eventually take it back in your left hand. Then pass the other rings back into your left hand in front of the Large Ring. Should you be working only with the Chain of Three and the Large Ring, the latter is now in its original position; but, should there have been other rings also in your left hand, it is a simple matter to ease the Large Ring over them with your left thumb and so be ready to use it again.

The final unlinking move is, to all intents and purposes, a repetition of unlinking the Chain of Two. The same twirl carries the lower ring and the two upper rings through the Large Ring, and the latter is carried smoothly down and clear of the chain to be handed out a second time— although the audience is not io know this—for examination.

Should you happen to possess two large rings, you can commence with these in position immediately behind the Chain of Three and avoid using the same ring twice. The effect is not enhanced and your only consideration should be whether or not it is desirable to make use of two large rings in your general routine.

LINKING TWO EXAMINED RINGS :

Hanging from your left fingers are a number of rings. Their order and composition are of no importance save that the ring nearest your finger tips must be- the Large Ring with the Key Ring immediately behind.

With your light hand, take the Large Ring and hand it out ior examination. Whilst this is in progress, take the Key in your right hand so that it hangs from the tips of your fingers which point towards the audience. The slot, or opening, in the Key rests upon the fleshy part of your second finger tip, which curls up just sufficiently io conceal it from view.

Extend your right hand to take back Ihe examined Large Ring. This is quite natural because your left hand is fully engaged, but you must now pass the examined ring into your left hand so as to offer the other for similar examination. The rings in your left hand are, therefore, tossed back into the crook of your elbow so as io leave the hand free and one of the right hand rings is transferred to its finger tips. This should logically be the ring which was nearest your right finger tips, i.e., the examined ring; but, in the act of transfer your right fingers curl up to close upon the two rings and then re-extend. The effect of this is to pass the Large Ring over and behind the key; and it i? the latter which is actual!/ transferred to your left hand, leaving the Large Ring in your right hand to be passed out for examination as though it were the other.

Recover this from the audience and then proceed to link the two rings in any manner desired.

EXAMINATION OF TWO UNLINKED RINGS :

At some stage in your routine you are about to unlink two rings, one of these being the Key and the other an ordinary single ring. All other rings hang íioir* ¿he crook of (say) your left elbow, ana these must include a Large king which for pieference although not necessarily, should be nearest your hand.

Proceed witn your unlinking and extend ¿he hands with one ring in each to demonstrate clearly their separation. The Key must be in your left hand.

It is then quite natural to lower the hands, and the result of this is that the rings in your elbow crook slide down into your left hand. Without pause, offer the ring in your right hand for examination and, for similar purpose, although to a person a little distance away, extend your left hand ior removal oí' ¿he ring nearest your finger lips.

You will find that the action of dropping the rings from elbow crook to the hand causes the Large Ring to pass over the Key—and, indeed, any other rings in front of it—and to come into position nearest your finger tips. The movement is quite automatic and requires no thoughi jr attention. You must, however, remember to cover the opening in the Key with your thumb when handing out for examination a ring immediately in front.

THE "OMEGA" COUNT:

In the pages of " Greater Magic " is to be found a description by Mr. Victor Farelli of a method of utilising two large rings in order to " count," or apparently pass separately from hand to hand, every ring of a set of eight.

The method is an undoubted improvement upon the Odin or other counts, but it involves a break in the action after counting the first four rings and, as in the case of most other " counts," it is a little unnatural to display the rings in the position in which the audience has a view througn them.

A new " count," which is described below, can be worked without break in the continuity and also with the rings " edge on " to the audience. I do not need to be reminded that rings do not possess an edge, but readers will know what I mean.

Stand squarely facing the audience with a set of eight rings in your left hand arranged, in order from your finger tips, thus : Large Ring : Large Ring : Closed Chain of Three : Closed Chain of Two : Ordinary Single Ring (or Key) : and proceed :—

(1) Transfer first large Ring to your right hand :

(2) Transfer the second Large Ring :

(3) Apparently transfer a third ring simil arly : although what happens is that you take the Chain of Three through the Large Rings and leave the latter in your left hand (see below);

(4) Again transfer a Large Ring, making four rings in your right hand ;

(5) Again transfer the other Large Ring, making five rings m your rignt nana;

(6) Apparantly transfer a sixth ring :imii-

arly ; although, in fact, you ¿ake ¿he Chain of Two through the nearer of the Large Rings and leave this in your left hand (see below);

(7) Again transfer a Large Ring, making seven rings in your right hand ;

(8) Transfer the last ring.

In order to work the switch of Two Large Rings for the Chain of Three as smoothly as possible, first make a break between the Chain and the rings immediately behind by inserting your left forefinger so that the rear three rings hang irom all four fingers and the Chain from your second, third and fourth fingers only. Also spread your fingers so as to make a narrow V opening between second and third fingers. As you bring your hands together, the Large Rings are held between your right thumb, on top, and first finger, beneath, and your right first and second fingers go into the V opening. This enables the Large Rings to be taken between your left thumb and first finger at the same time as your right first and second fingers engage and carry away the Chain Rings.

The later switch of one Large Ring for the Chain of Two is worked similarly. It is merely necessary to ensure that the Large Ring is first held cleanly, and away from other rings in your right hand, between thumb and finger.

When transferring the first ring, it should be carried away with a sweep of your right hand to the maximum extent possible ; and this sweep should be repeated before bringing the hands toeether for each successive transfer.
