-====== Benzais Cop ====== 
-This sleight was first published in Harry Lorayne'​s //​[[http://​​display/​20030/​Close+up+Card+Magic/​271|Close-up Card Magic]]//, 1962, p. 269. Lorayne called it the "JB Kard Kop." But in //​[[http://​​display/​11035/​Advanced+Fingertip+Control/​148|Advanced Fingertip Control]]//,​ 1970, p. 142, Ed Marlo recounts that he was told by Persi Diaconis that Persi showed this steal-palm to John Benzais, and Benzais then showed it to Lorayne. However, Wesley James writes that Benzais told James that he showed it to Diaconis instead, see //​[[http://​​display/​12674/​Enchantments/​286|Enchantments]]//,​ 2004, p. 278.
