I've been performing this trick lately, and I've been getting some pretty good reactions to it. However, I have to admit that I was never a big fan of this trick due to its complex mechanics, but after some adjustments, I think I've made it very easy to perform with any deck, under any condition -- by condition I mean anywhere, anytime -- and the reactions have been excellent in my opinion. (For those of you that are not familiar with this effect, I'll leave some links so you guys can check out the trick.)


I first learned the trick from Expert Card Technique, and I was very intimidated by it. The trick is explained in less than 1 page, but the mechanics is what made it very complicated for people that are not very good with a specific move -- like me. After looking up the trick on the internet, I found some videos of people such as Dan & Dave performing it for the camera and I got very impressed with the way it looked: sleightless.

The trick relies on a complicated move -- which I will not reveal here --, and I've never been very good at it; so I decided to work a way for me to perform it without using that move. At first I wasn't sure how to adjust it, until some time ago I got the simplest idea to set-up the packet in a way that I wouldn't be needing to make use of the move I was talking about.

I'd like to discuss my method and the original trick a little bit further without exposure, so please PM or just reply to this post and we can be cryptic about the various moves.

Please let me know what you guys think of this trick, and the problems you've encounter with it.

I'll try to upload a video of my performance.
