-====== Vernase Break Applied to the Veeser Concept ====== 
-This idea for the [[cards:​veeser_concept|Veeser Concept]] first appeared in print in Larry Jennings'​s "Look an Illusion"​ in //Lecture Notes//, 1970. The trick, rewritten, also appeared in //​[[http://​​display/​36914/​Genii/​16|Genii]]//,​ Vol. 34 No. 9, May 1970, p. 400. Technically,​ Jennings used a third-finger Vernase (or Verdnase) break for the task. The Vernase break is a variation on one explained by S. W. Erdnase, created by Dai Vernon. Jon Racherbaumer,​ in his trick "​Almost Making It" in //​[[http://​​display/​11213/​Hierophant+ebook/​346|The Hierophant]]//,​ No. 4, June 1970, p. 213, mentions the Jennings article in the May, //Genii//, ibid., but describes the break as held by the fourth finger, which is as Vernon did it. (Jennings learned the break from Vernon, but used his third finger due to the large size of his hands.
