An Out Of This World variation, streamlined and ready for performing situations without a table.
The performer talks about intuition, chance and that little feeling we get when we know something is right, or wrong. A deck of cards is introduced and legitimately shuffled. Half the deck is put away to streamline the demonstration. The other half is then handed to the spectator and the performer offers his/her outstretched palms as a surface to deal on to. The spectator deals the cards into two piles about equal amounts of cards in each, but in no specific order. Once all the cards are dealt, the performer shows that in one pile all the reds have been dealt, in the other all blacks! The spectator has managed to separate the cards, without knowing how.
- Easy to do, perform it the same day you buy.
- No stacks or pre-determined order of the cards, they can be legitimately shuffled.
- Unlike other OOTW effects, this is done in the hands, so is ideal for walk around performers and creates a great visual for those watching.
- You can still perform the rest of your repertoire without having to switch in a gimmicked/set-up deck – All you need is the Dichotomy deck.
The necessity of a table and the fact that you can't perform the original OOTW with a mixed up deck always put Dee off the method, despite loving the effect. He has stripped out everything to make this simple, direct and an in the hands demonstration, built for the modern day street and walk around performer.
