How often do you guys use them ? When I use them which is rarely I find people catch me out sometimes just because of the thickness . But many effects seem to utilise them I have found .

What are your guys thoughts ?

It should be funny if I confess that I feel guilty when I hold triple cards as one. With double cards, I don't feel guilty, and can handle them freely as one. So, I can say I do 'Triple Turn-over', but not 'Triple Lift'. When I hold triple cards, I would not stop the movements of the hand which hold the triple for a while.

Never be afraid of triple lifts just look to Bro.Hamman he used triple lifts on a consistent basis in his magic...

Hey Indus,

You're the only one who notices the thickness... Know what I mean?

When do you use triple lifts?

HI:

I use the Triple Lift, for example, to do this game called nowdays "Two Card Monte".

All the best magic

When you triple lift, simply tilt the triple down a bit more than average to hide the thickness.

you can also handle the three card in the biddle grip when displaying so your fingers hide the thickness

Why not turn over the triple when they are not looking at the deck and you are casually just talking to them.
It's a small world... but you wouldn't want to hoover it.

For example in the two card monte, you give one carda face down to a person. And then, you ask him to look the card and show it to people. Then, while they are looking the card, I riffle three cards with the thumb, and make a break, ready to turn the cards on the deck, as if it was a double lift. Never catch me, doing it.

All the best magic

Oh sorry I forget to said an important thing for my in card magic, or every kind of magic.

The best way for people to think that you are doing miracles, begin when you are thinking that you are doing truly a miracle. If you do a triple lift, thinking "oh my god I am doing a triple lift!", it is more easy that people catch you.

Of course I am talking about feeling transmissions. I could not swear that it works... but I could say maybe, sometimes works a lot.

All the best magic

Sorry everybody, I am not afraind of doing triple lift. I am rather very good at triple lift. Please refer "The Trick That Cannot be Reconstructed" in "Vernon Chronicles Vl.2" This trick is a joint creation of Dai Vernon and me. Stephen Minch possibly misunderstood how the trick was developed and his introduction of the trick is not correct, but it is not the current topics to explain the truth here. I only would like to point that that trick need very good triple lift to start.

In my last post, I exaggerated the difference between double lift and triple lift. I tried to mean that the thickness of cards can be covered by not stopping hands. That's all.

Hideo -

You've given exactly the same advice I would. I do a fairly killer version of Wild Card where the card in question never leaves the audience' sight. The tradeoff for that benefit, unfortunately, is a quadruple lift/turnover. The key is to either keep the card in motion during a lift (which I avoid in this case) or revert to a turnover where the block can lie on the deck with the thickness essentially hidden.

Just avoid (with all your might) awkward holding positions etc. That's worse than risking a glimpse of the thickness...

Cheers,

John

Just a suggestion, Pablo: I've been working on the Two-Card Monte, and have found that I can stick with a double lift if the final switch is done with a card at the BOTTOM of the deck. (That's all I can say without revealing too much of the method, so PM me if this isn't clear.)

Of course, if you're having success with the triple, there's no reason to change. I just like going with the double, since I use a two-card pushoff that is more suited to my style than a thumb-count lift.

Hello guys, I personally don't shy away from multiple lifts, it all just falls to the same old principal of misdirection. If the spectator is burning your hands and you look guilty, you'll telegraph it. I performed for our local TV station and utilized a quadruple lift. I was told by a mentor that I shouldn't ever use a quadruple lift. I was confident that I could pull it off. After he review the tape, he stated that he withdrew the never from his statement. I personally would never encourage using a multiple lift until your comfortable with a double, then a triple, and so forth.. Just practice and video tape your practice session.

Wow thatnks guys seems like a hot topic Smile . It probably is just me being a little to scared to pull them off. I will use the advise you guys have given and see if it gives me a bit more conferdence to do more multiple lifts .

This is cool, I have a problem doing triple lifts too, I usually just do a triple turnover instead, I find it easier than a triple lift for right now.
