Same here mate, time to change that


Same here too! Never put in the effort to memorize those even though I liked Denis' idea a lot. After reading Pit's book, I spent 2 days to memorize all the numbers and could start using them. Paid off very well.

WOW!!! This is a magic book with "real" magic effects within it pages. This is high end magic, sure.
I feel very "happy" to have this book in my possession.
I have speed read the book - there is so many superb memorized deck effects to learn & do - it´s like a grand de lux buffet.
If you like memorized deck stack magic - then this book is a must for you.
Soon, I will start doing new card miracles, that would be very fun...
Plus, the design of the book and the quality of the writing is superb/top notch. Crystal clear teaching.
I already learned two clever effects from the book. I will see what my favorites will be.

I give the book 10 out of 10.

Magically Yours

The book is awesome! I really like "Just Like This" and "The Heavyweight", but this book is full of great effects. Now working on "Poker Formulas". Does anyone ever tried to do the four of a kind of aces for 4 players? I'm having trouble with it, on the "zero" I get an indifferent card.. Am I doing it wrong? I tried it like 6 or 7 times with the same result..

Thanks!

Works fine for me....you should be getting an X card on the "zero" anyway...it's the other four that are the aces. Just make sure to follow the formula carefully...Feel Free to PM for assistance. Smile

After performing these 3 effects several times from this book: Catch me if you can, page 16, The Heavyweight, page 26 and Sherlock, page 40 - I know this is miracle class effects. I have great success with these tricks, sure.
But, I will learn more from this book, soon, its so fun to perform supertricks.

Nice! Do you perform all the phases of The Heavyweight? And how are the reactions from Sherlock?

Sherlock is one nice way to open up your act by having the entire deck shuffled by the spectators and continuing more Mem Deck tricks would just fry them even more. Talk about getting deep fried.

I have a question regarding the "Lift Shuffle" described in the book on page 53. He talks about holding a b***k throughout the shuffle, I understand this is necessary when you perform a normal lift shuffle.. But in this case I don't understand the function of it. Anyone? Smile

I think it just makes it easier to immediately pull off the next packet in a shuffling action. If the two packets square each time, it looks a bit more like you are repeatedly cutting the deck rather than overhand shuffling.
