Anchors AHoy by Sean Taylor

David Hoy's neo-classic, the Tossed out Deck has become the flavour of many months. Sean Taylor first performed it more than 25 years ago and, over that time, he's dissected it, tweaked it and tried to think long and hard about what the audience really thinks they might be seeing. The result of a quarter century of real work is a handling which is unlike any other. The core methodology is still very much Hoy but the layers of smoke and sheer subtlety which surround it will astound even those who perform this effect right now.

What you have here then is a method which has fooled some of the greatest minds in mentalism. It caused a sensation at Mindvention with heavyweights discussing it long into the night and it has become not only a closer in Sean's corporate act but also the closer in his mentalism lectures on four continents. You may have heard several of the recent Penguin lecturers mentioning this routine as being among their very favourite ways to perform the effect.

You might not choose to take the full routine, but if the Tossed out Deck appeals to you even the tiniest bit, you will find hints, subtleties, and some devilish concepts to hide the methodology. This is an opener, or a closer or even a middle routine which will grace a magic or mental act in way you probably aren't expecting. You have all the work here and even some video content to walk you through the mechanics. Good luck on the journey.

[Note that is effect is part of MindStorms. However, in this PDF you will also get a link to a video which is not available in MindStorms.]
