This is the ONLY card trick I've seen in my lifetime that gave me that jaw dropping Harry Loryane "Numero Uno" goose bump feeling when first seeing performed! That feeling of "No way in HE11 is that possible", WTF!!! A one of a kind magician foolery gem, and this is coming from a card guy of over 20 yrs! Absolutely genius in every respect of the word! Bravo to the creator, a million Claps ur way my friend!

Having a b crimp on top and a reverse on the bottom at the start of an effect is as old as the hills .
This maybe completely different but if you want a very fail safe version try it .
Just swing cut and have the selection placed on top and put the bottom half on top of the selection job done .
That is a basic very old procedure which I like Gaz 🙂

I've just read through this entire thread, my thoughts?... Now I don't own this effect yet (i will soon), but I will say that for those who say this effect is not for them simply because this does not hit 100% of the time, you folks seriously need to find a new hobby or profession. That's a part of being a magician, audience management and routine building is just as important if not more-so then the tricks themselves. I can honestly say that close to half of my effects on any given day are not bullet proof, but I make my audience feel as if they are due to planning and always having an out or simply making the trick my own in the end. Being a magician is an art, it's all about the artistry and what you make of it. No offence to you youngins out there, but I can't help but feel that this generation of magicians growing up these days simply want every trick to work for them instead of takin these tricks, putting in the work and making these effects there own in the end. Be creative, it's seriously NOT that hard. PIZ

Tarik what you’re describing is a different effect. In the trick that can be explained, the spectator shuffles the deck, then without you touching the cards they cut once to the card you have predicted.

So - I love the sound of this. It's a great, direct plot. I have worked out a way of doing this which is very similar to the conditions described, but not, I think, exactly the same. It hits almost every single time. I wonder if someone who actually has this could PM me and at least tell me if I'm close?! DOn't really wanna do it in this forum: I don't think it's actually against the rules, but I don't wanna do that to Mark.
