Marlo's Spade Routine

Allan Ackerman

Marlo's Spade Routine by Allan AckermanA deck is riffle shuffled. Spectator cuts off a portion and performer can tell by the weight of the packet how many cards were cut. Performer quickly glances through the deck. Spectator calls out a number and performer knows immediately the card at that position in the deck. Then a poker hand is dealt with the magician dealing himself a straight flush. And the routine ends with a game of bridge where the performer receives all 13 spades, the best hand you can have in a game of bridge.

This is a routine Ed Marlo published in the 1940s in his book Spades - that is where the name of the routine...

Poker Deal with Color Changing Deck

Allan Ackerman

Poker Deal with Color Changing Deck by Allan AckermanFace-up and face-down cards are shuffled together and then dealt for a five handed game of poker. Some cards will be face-up and some will be face-down. However, the performer is able to deal himself mostly face-down cards whereas everybody else receives all face-up cards. The four face-down cards the magician received turn out to be the four aces. On top of it the backs of these four aces have a different color than the rest of the cards.

Ackerman's All Backs

Allan Ackerman

Ackerman's All Backs by Allan AckermanThis is a fun routine that first appeared in Allan's Magic Mafia book. It is based on a Dai Vernon plot from the 60s. However, a typical 'all backs' routine requires many moves - half passes and double lifts. Here Allan has engineered a routine with a lot less moves. You could even do this routine while maintaining a stacked deck.

You show a deck that consists of cards that have backs printed on the front and back. This changes then to faces on both sides of the cards until everything goes back to normal.

Blank Thought Deck

Allan Ackerman

Blank Thought Deck by Allan AckermanThe performer fans a deck of cards which are all blank. Spectator merely thinks of a card. Performer removes the thought of card, which is naturally again a blank card. Magically the blank card turns into the thought of card and as a climax the whole blank deck turns into a regular deck.

No Throw Monte

Allan Ackerman

No Throw Monte by Allan AckermanThis is a routine Roger Klause and Allan Ackerman worked out in the 70s. The effect is the classic find the black lady. The classic effect is to throw three cards on the table face-down. Here the cards are simply displayed and counted to the table to achieve the same basic effect: the spectator never finds the black lady. The three card monte is expanded to a four card monte and the climax is that the cards change to the four aces.

Mayhew Poker Deal

Allan Ackerman

Mayhew Poker Deal by Allan AckermanThis is an idea by Steve Mayhew. He turns the classic Triumph effect into something entirely different. A face up half of a deck is shuffled into the other face down half. The performer then demonstrates center dealing only the face up cards. The last face-up cards coming out of the deck are the four aces leaving the performer with only face down cards.
