I love packet tricks always collect them I saw the effect that Javi Benitez did on Fool Us & was amazed on how talented this man was. What are your thoughts on his effect?

I love the magic that comes out of Spain. Tamariz, DaOrtiz, Aragon and now Benitez.

What an amazing effect! I don't think I've ever seen a packet trick like that where I've been so thoroughly convinced he only had four cards.

I didn't love his presentation though. I felt it was pretty over the top and misjudged (switching from overly dramatic to cutely comedic in a stilted fashion).

Still, no single routine has blown me away like this one. My head is still reeling.

Well, never seen that thick 4 card packet that was in the wallet at the start. The blank to jokers was beautiful and the first change got me totally of guard but after 3 almost identical repeats it became clear what was going on. Rest of the routine I just found confusing effect wise.

As a big fan of Wild Card (been doing it for over 35 years) I thought this was extraordinary.

Hi guys! It´s Javi Benitez here. First of all, thanks for the comments (the nice and the not nice ones, I learn even more from the non-possitive ones!). Someone uploaded a video with a completely different music track ripping out all the audience reactions. Here is the video with the original music of the act https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLB5oOq76c8 , I think it makes more sense with the acting involve and the hidden meaning of the whole act. PS. I´ll be at the Magic Castle visiting next week. Would be great to see some of you there! Cheers!

Javi, welcome to the Café. Please stay with us! Your act was superb! I loved Penn's response as well. I think we all saw bits and pieces of at least a half dozen effects... but we'd just be guessing (at least speaking for myself). Looking ahead for more, and sorry I won't be in LA to see you. (please visit San Francisco). Lynn

Javi Benítez "Chango", the magic and the presentation, including your persona, were great.
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

Javi,

You are a facinating artist and your performance was magnetic. If only we had more of this we would be taken more seriously.

Thank you everybody for the very nice comments. I also accept the critical ones though!
If someone want to join me, there will be a chance to be together in a Workshop very soon in L.A. There will be me and another great Spanish magician, Miguel Angel Gea (Fat Brothers)
If anyone wants more information, just check here: www.javibenitez.com/seminar
For anything else, I´ll be here and there.

What an amazing performance! I think packet tricks are so compelling, and this one had so many beautiful surprises.

It was truly beautiful. One of then best I've seen. And the character/personality was superb as well.
