|-||====== Benzais Cop ======|
|-||This sleight was first published in Harry Lorayne's //[[http://askalexander.org/display/20030/Close+up+Card+Magic/271|Close-up Card Magic]]//, 1962, p. 269. Lorayne called it the "JB Kard Kop." But in //[[http://askalexander.org/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://askalexander.org/display/12674/Enchantments/286|Enchantments]]//, 2004, p. 278.|
