Interestingly, Shin Lim chose to perform this routine on the final episode of AGT this year. He also performed it on Ellen.

Here are clips of both his performances of "Con Cam Coincidencia":

I just downloaded this. For an ex professional and now an every now and then performer this is a great mind blowing trick. For me it's good because there's not much to remember if you only occasionally perform. But it packs a super wallop.

The little details from Mr Lim are great as well. But R. Paul makes it very easy to select the card and place it back in the deck. A real no brainer if you want a mind blower routine.
The ULTIMATE Routine Series: rebirth soon!

C'mon guys. if this blew minds in AGT, and it is not very difficult to do, it is a keeper. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY. IT IS A REPUTATION MAKER, and it highlights the importance of showmanship and routining as the key to great card magic. not finger flicking moves, as in so many people's ace sandwich type effects. this kills.

Not sure why I did not notice this before but have R Paul Wilsons DVD set. Shin puts a nice touch on it, instead of the way it is taught on the DVD with a k****** makes it even more deceptive and impossible. Definitely be breaking this out this weekend.

If anyone is wondering which DVD set it is on, it is his Killers DVD collection.

Thanks guys for highlighting this. I never knew this effect before and it's so obvious. Amazing reactions!
On the Ellen Show one of the participants didn't handle her cards well but no one noticed.

Like Gemini Twins it impresses despite its simplicity.

If I had the extra $$ I would have bought the 2 dvd set just cuz. However, I got the download. I believe this is some money really well spent and I'm not really a card guy. Actually kinda new to cards,still. Use any borrowed deck. Shuffle the cards around alot! It seems impossible! Shhhhhhhhhhhhh! There's a reason everyone was baffled! 😀. $.02

Combine this with Ryan Schlutz's Pivotal P*** and you will devastate magicians with this.

Hey guys -- let me know what you think of a potential "pre-climax" to C3:

Suppose you set a "prediction" on the table before the proceedings.
Now, *just* before the final reveal, you ask each participant to announce the *number* of cards in their pile.
You then ask one of the volunteers to sum up the number of cards in the four piles.
Of course, just before you make that request, you pick up the "prediction" and use a TW/NW and some (trivial) arithmetic...
You turn over the prediction, and it matches the total number of cards in the four piles.

The "benefit" of this "extension" to the effect is three-fold:
- it is another "magical moment" (with heat off the "work")
- it adds some "delay misdirection" before the final reveal
(but more importantly)
- it gives some rationale for the proceedings! (otherwise, it is kind of "random magician stuff")
"if you have any answers, it's time to ask harder questions!"

I performed this at a table full of magicians.. and no one had a clue.. Pregnant pauses and conversation are the key. It's the small talk that makes the audience forget all the steps. The last step bothered me also.. until I decided to perform it with panache. In the unlikely event one of the spectators catches on to what you're doing, pat them on the back and congratulate them for being in the top 2 percentile of geniuses. They won't tell and they'll love you for the compliment. Should you buy it? If it's something you'll add to your repertoire, then it's well worth the single item purchase price. I've bought entire DVD sets.. and not found a single worthy effect.

Hi all, I was just looking at the Shin Lim performance of this and was wondering if anyone knows what peek or riffle force Shin Lim uses. It's quite effective. He does seem to possibly look at the bottom card in the deck as he hands it to Ellen.

Paul also brings out C3 Poker, it,'s a second version of this effect (different) and there he teaches I think the same peek shin was using on the AGT Performance.

The peek or one almost indistinguishable is also the first item in John Bannon's Mentalissimo
