Topic: Michael Vincent ACAAN
Message: Posted by: Theo (Nov 20, 2018 02:52PM)
I bumped into Michael Vincent in London today and had a coffee with him. He started talking to me about his great experience meeting David Berglas recently at his house and seeing the Berglas Effect in person and the impact it had on him. Without prompting he went on to show me his own acaan '52 factorial' I think he calls it. I went for the king of hearts at 18. I could have changed both at any time. Wham bam! He hit it. Amazing. I shuffled the deck. I will never forget king of hearts at 18!!

He has a new DVD 'Synergy' coming out for Christmas from Alakazam. I don't know if it is on it but I am sure it will be amazing. Buy it!

If it's the routine he's posted a few times recently to YouTube, it's based on Barrie Richardson's, I think.

Is there any update on this?

ACAAN starts at 13:00. (The spectator has had the deck in his pocket since earlier in the set).

When I watched this, I couldn't believe how audacious the method is.

The spec didnít shuffle the deck. Good routine.

That's a very smart presentation.

Very similar methodically to a version I saw Juan Tamariz do on the Best of Magic TV show circa 1990 but quite a different presentation.

Too much procedure and chit chat I couldn't finish it

Almost zero procedure. A heck of a lot of chit chat.

I've done this ACAAN straight forward without a lot of chit chat at plenty of walkaround gigs. It's really good and to the point.

I just stumbled across this thread again.
Seems to me a great lesson in the importance of trying to see an effect through spectators' eyes. To them it presumably seems like two totally fair random selections.
