Benzais Oil & Water by Allan Ackerman

The 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.

runtime: 1min 28s

Stop! by Allan Ackerman

Spectator chooses a card, remembers it, and the card is lost in the deck. Then the performer places cards one by one on the table until the spectator says: "Stop!". Magically the spectator has stopped exactly at his chosen card.

Card Under Drink by Allan Ackerman

The 'card under drink' plot was made famous by Heba Haba Al (Al Andrucci) in the 1960s. Ever since it has been a favorite of bar magicians all over the world. Here Allan teaches a version that uses a misdirective idea by John Bannon. The effect is clear and devastating. A chosen card unexpectedly ends up under a drink (glass, can, etc.).

Card in Wallet by Allan Ackerman

The 'card to wallet' effect is one of those all time classic magic effects. It is probably the best application for palming. A spectator freely selects a card, signs it, shuffles the pack, and magically the chosen and signed card ends up in a zippered compartment in your wallet.

Mayhew Poker Deal by Allan Ackerman

This 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.

runtime: 4min 53s

Stop Aces by Allan Ackerman

This is a neat little ace revelation using three bottom deals. Performer deals cards to the table until spectator says: "Stop." Another packet is dealt until spectator says: "Stop." This is done for another two times until a total of four packets are on the table. The bottom most card of all those four packets is an ace.

No Throw Monte by Allan Ackerman

This 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.

runtime: 9min 36s

Blank Thought Deck by Allan Ackerman

Ackerman's All Backs by Allan Ackerman

This 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.

Poker Deal with Color Changing Deck by Allan Ackerman

Face-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.

runtime: 4min 50s
