Trapeze to Double or Nothing
This is a neat little transition from a "Man on Trapeze" to a "Double or Nothing." Think of it as a shortcut. When inserted into tricks it adds a bit of style and complexity.

First thing you do is a "Man on Trapeze".

NOTE: You are looking at this trick from the front as if you're watching someone perform it. From your perspective, the right hand is to your left and the left hand is to your right.

Next insert your right index finger into the loop of string that goes around your left index finger.

Expand the loop like so.

With your left hand, make the yo-yo do a rotation by swinging your hand to the left in a semi-circle motion (shown with blue mini-arrows).

The yo-yo goes over your left index finger. Aim to land on the outer blue string.

Once landed, you have "Double or Nothing."

Now time for the dismount. We're going to do a "Windmill" back into a "Man on Trapeze" then a "Flyaway" dismount.

The first thing is drop the string that goes around your right index finger. Next, swing your hand to the right in a semi-circle motion (shown with blue mini-arrows).

The yo-yo will come around.

After it completes the rotation, you're back in the "Man on Trapeze" position. Finish the trick by doing a "Flyaway" dismount, which is flipping the yo-yo up in the air and catching it.

I hope you make good use of this transition trick. It can be inserted in a variety of side mounted tricks.
