Twisting the Aces

Allan Ackerman

Twisting the Aces by Allan AckermanThis is a tremendously visual effect developed by Dai Vernon using the Elmsley Count. The aces one by one turn face-up while the four aces are merely shown and counted. For the climax the black aces change place with the red aces while they are resting in the spectators hand.

If you want an even more visual twisting effect, then take a look at Waving the Aces by Guy Hollingworth.

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.

Marlo's Matching Routine

Allan Ackerman

Marlo's Matching Routine by Allan AckermanThe deck is shuffled. Spectator cuts off a small packet and sets it aside. The performer selects one card from the remaining cards. It turns out that this is the mate card to the card on the bottom of the spectator cut packet. The same procedure is repeated and again the performer is able to pick the mate card. In ever more impossible ways the spectator selects cards which turn out to be located next to their mates.

This routine was first published in Faro Control Miracles. It uses the stay stack principle.
