Hidden gem for the day: Quadruple Coincidence from the book entitled Scarne on Cards. No skill required. It's a "do as I do" effect with four magic moments at the end. Pow... pow... pow... POW!
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

Hello Café members! I think a few great self-workers are those that are published by Harry Lorayne that have already been mentioned (OOTU, Equalizer, Lazy Man's Card Trick, etc.). Recently, I happen to stumble on one of his that I overlooked, from CUCM V. 1, in the Bonus section, called REALLY. This effect is truly amazing, and requires absolutely NO effort on the performer's part at all. The great thing is that it works no matter how you stage it (look it up, try it out, and you will know what I mean). I still can't figure out how it works (but fortunately all I have to do is perform it, not explain it!!). Good luck to all of you in the future!

Harry has since published REALLY! in his book And Finally.

For those who aren't familiar with the effect, here is Harry performing "Really!", as part of his terrific Jawdroppers! Lecture in celebration of his 90th birthday:

I love ‘How To Find Your Other Half’ by Woody Aragon from his “A Book In English”. I think he also teaches it on his Penguin Live Lecture as well.

Another self working effect I love to use is called “ Where It Has To Go “ by Rick Lax, the participant makes all of the decisions and you only touch the cards to explain & go through a quick selection process

Hmm. Looking for this trick and not finding it in my old copy of Close-Up Card Magic. So, is this in the updated version in the Classic Collection vol 1?

Seems as if nobody took the time to answer you, cosermann. Yes/ my effect REALLY! is in the bonus section of LORAYNE: THE CLASSIC COLLECTION, Vol. 1. If you don't already have it, good luck finding a copy - it's been out of print for a decade or so. But - as someone mentioned above, I updated the effect (REALLY!) and explained how to use my Utility Mixer as part of the presentation in AND FINALLY! (If you don't have a copy of that - act soon, it's heading towards "sold out.") REALLY! is one of the strongest effects I know and perform. HL. (You can order AND FINALLY! or whatever else of mine is still available at harryloraynemagic.com .)

I consider myself fortunate that I was finally able to get AND FINALLY. Though it took awhile, my patience was dry well rewarded. I wholeheartedly agree with get it while you can.

This is a strong effect from Mr. Lorayne. I forgot about this effect until I saw the effect of Mr. Lorayne performing it on his 90th birthday. It even fools me when I perform it. You just wonder how can this be.
