1. You see a live performance of Craig performing The Cocktail Chop Cup from Card Shark. This is an incredible Chop Cup built into a cocktail shaker. Craig performs the full routine including a bag load finale.


2. You see the same footage but this time Craig records a commentary track over the top of the performance. Craig breaks down his performance and talks about audience management, misdirection and direction of attention.


3. Craig reviews the Night Flight Red deck of cards. These cards have the best marks system in the world and are designed specifically for magicians. They look great and feel great. Craig takes them through their paces.


4. Craig looks at Clearly Impossible by Jay Sankey and talks about how you can change the handling of the routine to make it even better than the original. He also performs the routine so you can see exactly what he is saying.
