Hi guys! There's a beautiful card effect on http://www.luisdematos.pt,
Go into the showroom section and then select TV and click on triple fantasy.
What's this beautiful effect?!

It's o.k. but nothing fantistic.
Magic is a vanishing art.

Yeah, it was ok. I wasnt all that impressed. I thought the way he rubbed the cards was very annoying and that the effect itself was a little too long. I just had this "get on with it, they are all gonna be kings" mentality on the last 3rd of the trick. Did it have patter? My sound doesn't work...So that may have been why I was a little bored with it. I also thought the back change might kinda give away the fact that there were extra cards? But then again, the appearance of the Kings also tells you that.

You didn't miss anything by not having sound. Just piano music playing in the background.

Nice effect but I will say it also took so long to view it I gave up before the ending.. I'm on high speed at work but it seems like it took forever just to navigate to the video to beging with. After I got there is is one of those load and watch and wait, load some more etc.. This guy is Artistic that's for sure...

On the same website he has an interesting handling of Paul Harris' Linking Cards...Harris may have called it Immaculate Connection, but I'm not positive. As for the Triple Fantasy effect, good hands, but I, too, was somewhat annoyed by the performance.

I'm not impressed either, and I can explain it.

I am impressed. I’m not a cardman, but I know many versions of Twisting the Aces and perform several (including the ones most talked and raved about in the Café). I’m not aware of any version that has three changes. Most don’t even have two complete changes – in MaxiTwist only three of the aces change, and the aces-to-kings versions usually require showing one king twice. Maybe someone can give me a reference to three-change routine that I’ve missed.

This guy’s counts are much cleaner and more convincing than the usual Ascanio spread or Elmsley count. Yes, I’m sure most magicians find his pace irritatingly slow, but he’s performing for laypeople, not magicians. I often show videos from the Café to non-magician friends, and they find the vast majority of them very non-magical. The moves are far so fast that they aren’t even sure what happened, or they simply dismiss the whole effect as being a case of the magician moving his hands so fast that the spectator simply missed seeing him change the card or throw the coin into his other hand.

It’s ridiculous to say that the effect is unimpressive because you know there are extra cards involved. That means three-quarters of all packet tricks out there are unimpressive. The point is that his handling is so clean and open that a layperson simply won’t think that extra cards could possibly be there. Contrast his open display of four different aces and four different kings with the display in NFW (a much-praised twisting routine) where the spectator really sees only four different cards and a series of rather suspicious-looking counts.

You're pretty right Milky!!! You have to be totally blind to say that the trick is unimpressive! But the question was do you know the name of the effect and can it be found somewhere?! Imagine...Big talkers around here...
