Topic: What trick is this?
Message: Posted by: ContrarianElk (Feb 22, 2019 04:42PM)
Hello people

I was watching Dani DaOrtiz perform a routine for some magicians at a convention (link: https://youtu.be/BHYiIcjNdAs) and he did a trick with the aces that looks like some sort of twisting the aces variation. Performance starts at the 6:52 mark. I understand he does a lot of improvisation in his work, but I was wondering if someone knew if this was an actual routine, as I believe Iíve seen something of this manner before. Specifically, the aces turning over one by one unti theyíre all facedown in a ďtwisting the acesĒ fashion. Any help with this would be appreciated!

Hi there. Thanks for posting the routine. Itís a really great twisting the Aces routine. I see that the transposition at the end is from a Bebel routine at the beginning of Fat Brothers Vol 1. Thatís a really cool piece of magic too. As for your question, there is a very nice Twisting the Aces routine that goes from face up to face down at the end of Aldo Finale E-book. It is called Twisting Around and it is by Francesco Mattiello. I canít remember having seen The above routine by Dani in print, but itís pretty standard moves. Itís performance is what makes it stand out.
