Other then a few over the years, they all end up with the same outcome- disappointment

With so many cuts in the trailer, I'm afraid I know where this has to go...

Good thing about downloads is that they leave valuable space in the bottom drawer.

Midnight, Sunday, August 12... Still not on sale! I don't know why I am chomping at the bit so much for this one. Must be Rick's presentation style.


Because they know suckers like you want what they can’t get, now. Smile


Got me on that one! We all have our turn. This seems like it will be a winner, for some of us at least. I already have a simple and fun ACAAN that is partially done in a specs hands. I will be happy to pay for Rick's presentation ideas.
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

I'm normally not a fan of cuts the trailer but I am understanding why on this one.

MATH??? What? This trick is ridiculously easy.

Some(not many) will know parts of this method. Those that don't know the principle(most of us) will learn one of the best card secrets ever. Great job on this one Rick.

I was not talking about alegebra but basic math. As you mention some will know the principle and some will know the method. I was able to work out the trick as I am familiar with both. I bought the trick this morning and I was right.

I like the presentation that Rick has come up with and I am happy with my purchase.

Is this worth purchasing if you already do Asi Wind and Matt Johnson versions?
Bit of a sucker for the ACAAN plot.

How different is this to what I’ve already learnt on John Bannon’s DVD ?

@AceFace, Mr. Lax does credit the work of John Bannon, but there is a difference, in that the number the card ends up is selected by your participant, and I believe with the Bannon effect you're sending the card to a predetermined location in the deck which you can reveal from a prediction.

I'm familiar with something similar to the Lax effect, by Hummer, but again, in the Hummer effect your participant does not provide the number ... I think that's what makes this such a nice effect. I plan to use it.

Anybody familiar with Marlo's Automatic Placement would immediately understand what's going on here from just the ad. The only question was: "Is he going to simply "adjust" with a casual shuffle afterwards, or is he going to do this the smart way?"

I'm pleased to say that he did it the smart way. Smile

What I really like about this is the presentation, and also, the lovely little psychological convincer he uses to get the participant to agree and believe in something that is patently false. The card suddenly "appears" at the requested position without a single move while the participant believes that it just couldn't be possible. And that, I feel, is the strong moment in this effect. In essence, the effect is actually about a card magically moving from one spot in the deck to a specific location that has been freely chosen when the participants *know* it just couldn't be possible without touching the cards. And yet, it does. That makes the effect a slight departure from the traditional "card at any number plot", but in this case, it is a welcome one.

I haven't seen many of Mr. Lax's effects and most of the ones I have seen were not to my liking. However, this lovely little bit is quite nice and packs a decent punch. I can't really find fault with anything in this one. And for those of you who haven't yet encountered the Automatic Placement principle, you are in for an extra special treat.

That's a big 10-4
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "
