Blind Aces

Blind Aces by Darwin OrtizA deck is borrowed from one spectator and shuffled by another spectator. Darwin finds the four aces while his eyes are covered by the hands of a third spectator. He even discerns the suit of one of the aces by touch alone.

To pull this effect off you will need a bit of pre-show work.

Jacks or Better (Ortiz)

Jacks or Better (Ortiz) by Darwin OrtizA commercial gambling routine.

Darwin starts with a little false dealing demonstration dealing seconds and then thirds, fourths or fifths. He continues to show how a cheat could use such dealing techniques. He attempts to deal the four Jacks to himself starting with the Jacks as the top four cards. However, he ends up dealing the four Jacks to his opponent and - as a climax - reveals that he has dealt himself the four aces.

Darwin teaches an easy faux 3rd-, 4th-, 5th- deal. You will need to be able to deal seconds. You will also need to be able to cull cards and do a Braue addition.
