Here are the stuff a uses...Top 5

- Sponge bunnies
- Reflex (Paul Harris) and card to wallet (unsigned)
- Rubber bands. Cmh, ring band it, torn and restored..
- Flying bill ( A borrow bill flys from the spectators hand to my)
- A coin routine ( coin on forehead, shoulder, and a change to a glass coin)

It all depens of the size of the audience, for bigger groups a use more visible magic than the above...

All the best

Colour Monte here here
on page 2 it is mentioned that the spec could possible turn the supposed red diamond over in their hand only to see $14

I have been performing this for 4yrs. In this time this has happened to me once, I think the key with choosing a human table is to choose someone who is a little shy and someone that you feel might not want too try and catch you out.

Through experience I find women more so than men to be best subjects. From experience you will know who and who not to choose.

You probably wouldn't fool Magician's with a professors nightmare, but for laypeople I think it's still a good effect. Dan Fleshman, Jon Allen, Daryl, Whit Haydn & James Lewis amongst many others do versions of the professors nightmare, I very much doubt they'd be asked to leave a "boo-king" if they performed the effect.

1. B'Wave- Phil Goldstein
2. Chefalo's knot.
3. Ring off rope.
4. Penetrating Matchsticks (held thumb to index, one in each hand).
5. Incredible Traffic Light.
All are angle proof, very easy to perform, most involve the spectator examining an object or making a choice and all get a great reaction.

Pretending that "Smoke and Mirrors" comes back and looks at this and hasn't devised a way on his own, one you show the top red diamond put it in your other hand and use it to turn over the second red diamond, or just turn over the second with one hand (it could be kinda flourishy). At the end hand them (face up) the red and blue diamonds, one in each hand, and keep the $14 face down in your own hands. HOpe that helped.

Back to the topic:
Above, Beside, or Below or 3/4 across (depending on how open the audience is)
Ambitious Card
Spongeballs
Ring Leader, Recap, or Psycokinetic Time (depending on what I can borrow)
Pen thru dollar/TT vanish to pocket

"Always" may not be the best word to use but this sequence never fails to yeild great reactions from a mob of entertainment starved onlookers. It utilizes what Phil Goldstien calls "Ecological Magic" Meaning that each phase uses something left-over from the last. One flows smoothly into the other.

1. 2 Card Monte
2. Sandwich prediction (My treatment of something bearing resemblance to Harry Lorayne's "One-Eyed Jack Sandwich" or more recently Steve Draun's "Chicago Sandwich")
3. Ambitious Card
4. My Best Trick- (A two card transpo which leads to the revelation of a previously thought of card between the spectators palms.) The basic framework (that is the effect without my touches and ploys added) belongs to Russell Barnhart and can be found in Harry Lorayne's Best of Friend's Vol. II
5. L.O.A.D.E.D.(Torn and Restored Signed Card to SPECTATORS Wallet.) From the Cafés own RT Showmann

Don't forget about Guy Hollingworth's incredible version which I first read in Genii (The issue where his picture graced the cover)
