Could anyone recommend a strong handling for Dunbury Delusion for walk-around? Also, I don't do second deals, bottom deals, or middle deals. I love Michael Vincent's version which he has lectured on, but there is a part of it that requires a table with respect to natural handling.

I don't particularly like the finish in the "Show Stoppers with Cards" handling. Thanks for any suggestions you may have!

I perform a version similiar to one that Jason Randal performs here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KsyGog_9qs 7.25min mark

I don't know his handling but the way I do it is to cut any 3 3rd from the bottom, control the selection to second from the top, then get a break under the bottom 4 cards. Show the first indifferent card, place in hand, show the second card (theirs) as I turn it over I drop the 4 stack and place an indifferent card on their hand, turn over the next card (the 3) and say this shows its 3 cards down, loose the 3 in the middle of the deck and count 2 cards onto their hand and saying this one (the third one) is your card etc

Thanks, Chamberlain. That will totally get the gears spinning. Appreciate the suggestion and the time you took to write our your own handling!

Gary Jones and Lee Smith have a version on their iCandy DVD called 6 card Dunbury that uses only 6 cards and no table required. It’s not quite the same effect but it has some similarities and uses a simple sleight/move.

I recommend Eddie Fechter's classic "That's It." Have a spectator hold her hands out "like a table" and put each "wrong" card there. If you are not familiar with Fechter's stuff by all means get a hold of "Magician Nitely" or "Fechter!" I own the former but I think they may both be OOP. Hopefully not! Feel free to PM me. No difficult moves.

My preference is That's It then I lead into an ambitious card (as there's ample time when they check the cards in their hand to do a top change)

I've found though for louder environments that Dunbury Delusion is easier as with that's it you need to explain how you want them to say "that's it" after every card you show them, and that few minutes of explaining what you want them to do can be lost on people who are drunk/can't hear you as well

Chamberlain, I worked on your handling last night and performed it for my spouse this morning. I like it! I'll keep exploring, but this could be an a very good solution. I'm not sure how you control the selected card to the second from the top, but I played with placing the 3 fourth from the bottom (rather than three), then dropping the bottom card on top of the selection in the center of the pack. Works pretty well. Do you have a smoother, more economical method that you'd mind sharing?

So, is "That's It" closer to Dunbury Delusion or Dr. Daily's Last Trick? I've seen people liken both of these trick's to Fechter's "That's It," and I've never really understood. I do Dr. Daily's Last Trick, so if Fechter's actually more of a Dunbury Delusion handling? I definitely would like to learn more of Eddie Fechter's material (I've seen some from Mike Gallo's published work).

Whilst it's not The Dunbury Delusion the Fingerprint card effect is very similar in that the spectator see's their selected card dealt on to their hand only to end up in the magicians hand at the finish and is very easy to perform without a table as I've used it myself for years.

"That's It" is closer to "Dunbury Delusion". If you like Fechter's material and are thinking about "Dr. Daley's Last Trick", look up "Be Honest, What Is It?" For ideas for card controls, click the shameless self-promotion in the signature below. For anything else, press star on your keypad.

Another option that I use regular is Lee Smiths fifth Element which is his take on the Paul Harris effect Whack Your Pack which also has the same feel to it.

The Burnaby Kid, thank you so much for your clarification. This is super helpful, and I'll jot down a note to check out your card control material.

Warren, I will definitely check out Fingerprint. Thanks for the suggestion!

David Lederman’s version of Dunbury Delusion, aptly named the Davebury Delusion is what Chamberlain describes. The four Aces are the 4 discards, which gives it some magical impact to the “magician makes good” outcome. I use a bluff shift to get the selection 2nd from top but there are countless ways.
