This is one hidden gem. I just cant recommend this one enough. For 1.5$? C'mon!
Here are some of the effects/sleights you will learn:
1- Braue Double Lift: A super clean Double/Triple lift with NO get ready. Its the FIRST time I see this double .. its not even in Greg Wilson's DVD Double Take .. !
2- Homing Card: A group of cards are fanned, a card is discared, the cards are fanned again .. and the card is still there !! This is done couple of times!
3- A card is selected and shuffled in the deck. The performer shows and deals 3 cards .. and the selected card is one of them! He still doesnt know the selected card though .. he deals a forth card .. and its the selected card! Spectators rush to the 3 cards dealt before, and of course, the selected card is not anyone of them.
4- a Fan false count. You can count seven or ten cards as five .. or any number less than it ( depends on the stack ).
5- 4 cards are selected and shuffled in the deck. The performer cuts the deck 4 times, finding each card and deals it. After discovering all the four cards and dealing them .. spectator discovers that the 4 cards are all Aces!
These are my fav.s .. there are some tricks in the book. For 1.5$? Why not getting it?!
