One thing we can all agree on is that it's a great effect and Harry you have definitely added some nice touches to the effect.

I already got the answer, the difference was the handling and the subtleties. Now let's move on and keep it friendly.

Put them back in the deck and find them again. There's a few tricks where you can get spectators to cut to the aces which are great to follow up with and then finish off by using the aces in a collectors plot.

After you find the 4 aces, you turn the lights off and go to bed. How can you top that?

Forgot about the Christ Four Ace Trick. An awesome follow up that can be slow and drawn out after a quick production.

You caught their attention and this routine says, "Now watch this!"

Thanks for your input Rick, having looked up jazz aces with the O'Henry kicker I thought the effect was much better as it gave it an ending Smile

My pleasure! This is one of my favorite "go to" effects. It also happens much quicker than other assembly effects.

Another goodie is JC Wagner's Underground Transpo 2. I doubt it's on youtube. You can find two versions: one is in his commercial magic book, the other has an updated handling which I prefer on his DVD 7 More Secrets. It's a really clean looking twisting effect with the Aces, then suddenly they switch to the Kings.

Thanks Rick I have the Commercial Magic book so I'll take a look, don't get me wrong I have a few effects I do with the aces ie Dr Daleys, Twisting the aces, cutting the aces plus spectator cutting the aces and ace assemblies and more.

I used to perform jazz aces myself but it fell by the way side until I saw the O'Henry Kicker which is now the way I'll also perform the effect from now on along with a couple of nice subtleties I picked up from re-watching Rock n Roll Aces as taught by Harry Lorayne so thanks for pointing me in the right direction Smile

I googled it but nothing came up unless what you meant was just get Jaw Droppers 2 by Harry ?

No, I was just responding to the OP.
What I do after I've found the four aces is Lorayne's Off-The-Rack 3-Piece Suit from JawDroppers! Two

I was the original poster Smile could you expand on the effect as anything by Harry gets my interest.

Sure. This gem comes from Mr. Lorayne's excellent new book. It is his version of a Max Maven treatment of the Hofzinser 4 Ace problem.
Simple, and magical.

There's no way they can be counted, but over the decades, in all my books - I must have published literally hundreds of things "to do once you've found the 4 aces"! (Plus pretty near the same number on "how to find them.") Best - H.

Ok, just tried it out, Harry. All I can say is WOW! I FRIED myself! I've been doing Halo Aces my entire life and I've just added  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Plus to my repertoire. Talk about a JawDropper!
Thankyou sir, this is a real reputation maker.

So you've produced the 4 aces now what do you do with them ?

Typically for me I follow it up with Dr Daleys


After McDonalds Aces, I do a 2 phase coin matrix. I try to limit card magic Smile. so this is a perfect segue to coins.
