Card in Wallet

Card in Wallet by Allan AckermanThe 'card to wallet' effect is one of those all time classic magic effects. It is probably the best application for palming.

Benzais Oil & Water

Benzais Oil & Water by Allan AckermanThe performer hands 6 cards to a spectator who arranges the cards in red-black alternating order. The performer openly counts those six cards to the table. Once the cards are ribbon spread on the table the colors have, like oil and water, separated.

This is a very clean sequence that can be added to most oil & water routines or performed stand alone. The oil & water effect is an Ed Marlo creation. This version uses the Benzais cop to achieve the effect.

Cards Across

Cards Across by Allan AckermanThis is a routine Allan Ackerman developed in the early 1970s where he tried to achieve the cards across effect with as little motion as possible. He also added a visual card vanish. Later Paul Harris took this routine and turned it into his famous Sleeper routine.

A spectator picks a card. A second spectator cuts off a small portion of the deck, counts the cards, and puts the counted cards in a safe place. The performer then attempts to magically add as many cards to the second spectator's pack as the value of the card the first spectator chose.
