IMHO, the worse part of the routine is where you show three backs, and turn them around and cover one of the cards with one of the aces. It looks awkward.


I couldn't agree more. This part looks very unnatural. You can tell you're hiding something there. Also during that same part when you are flipping to the backs it too looks very forced and unnatural. Other than that, good work I enjoyed it.

I guess you mean the part where I show the "Ace of clubs" between the red aces in the beginning?

I think that is the best part fo the routine, fooled magicians alike with it, hehe.

Wellwell, I have refined the handling, and made it fewer move.

Yes, that was the part I was talking about. If it fits you, go for it, I just thought it looked very suspicious.

You write that your handling is inspired by Bill Malone, I guess you own the On The Loose series then? I'm just curious, why do you use the K.M approach rather than the addon move Malone uses? It's much easier and more deceptive... By the way, your addon was smooth Smile

IMO, Bill's ending is abit weaker than yours, because he never spreads the last card. I use Bill's routine with the same ending as you, and the handling is also very smooth. Who is the source of the ending you use?

Well, Bill Maloneuses the "palm to palm transfer"-gag ion his routine, not as an ending though, so, it was the end that was inspired by him Smile

One quick way to evaluate a routine is to compare it to how you would do the routine if in fact you were doing the thing you claim. In this case, making a card invisible or visible as you choose.

|first off
doing this live is not the same as doing the effect for a camera.DeFlare did an excellent job and in the real world there would be no suspicions.
we forget that he is performing for magicians not lay people.
I feel as I stated earlier there is no need to over prove anything the rest of the routine is just fine IMO

Bill Malone actually use the "p2p transfer"-gag in the end, then he does a tenkai move. This is what I didn't like, and has changed to pretty much the same as you Smile

Alright, here is the updated version of the routine. I'm gonna stick to this, as I think it's great now, without bragging, lol.

Anyways, I reduced the showing of the ace sin the beginning to only one (twoi if you count the removing of the aces from the deck.
I am sure someone will comment about the laydown of the "invisible" card, but this fits to my patter, where I talk about secret rooms in my hand, which I can open whenever I want, hence the ace falling out of my hand.

I notced after recording that I don't do the Tent vanish that convincing, as I lower my thumb too fast, so it doesn't give it that extra little retention of vision.

Here is the video
