Greetings,

I am working on this routine from Aldo's book, "The Close-Up Magic of Aldo Colombini."

I get to step 8 in this routine, and up till that point, everything seem to be working like clock work. And WHAM, I am completely confused.

Is there a mistake, something missing, or am I just not catching something? Being non-specific on purpose, but if someone has worked through this routine, perhaps you can keep me in on a PM or if there is an error, just let me know.

Thanks!

RevJohn

Hi RevJohn,


Did you ever find anything out? I just came across this routine and am intrigued by it.


Thanks,


Bob

Firstly, step 6 ends with the reveal of three coins at D. Delete the rest of that paragraph.

In step 8, turn the card at B face up and slide it under its own coin (NOT under a coin at D). The right hand picks up that card with the coin on top, dumps the coin into the left hand, and turns the card over onto the left hand as cover, taking away the card (now face down) with the coin concealed below it, as the left hand closes. The sleight in the Notes is then used to show the card front and back while concealing the coin. End the sleight (figures 6, 7, 8, 9 and then the same in reverse) with the card face down, the coin held below it by the right thumb. Use the right hand to leave its card (and the coin beneath) at B. Snap the right fingers and open the left hand. The text reads "There should be four coins at D.". What that means is that you have given this impression, because there are apparently no coins anywhere else. You can tap the card at D to emphasize this. All that remains is the "reverse matrix" reveal (step 9).

PM any further questions. Good luck with this!

Wow! Thanks so much, martonikus. I'd given up on getting an answer. I'll take a look at the description again, along with your annotations, and let you know if I have questions.


Best Regards,


Bob
