(first published 2011) Michael combined a new mathematical principle with known techniques to come up with something astonishing. This new 'Reloaded' edition is a major revision. Michael has taken the opportunity to revisit the procedures, to simplify them, to present them in a more accessible way, and also to include a new training app (runs in your web browser) which will significantly aid learning and practice.
"Kudos to Michael for bringing something this good to the magic community ... Diabolic and truly amazing ... pure killer magic!" - Doug Canning
Three, four or five different items (cards or counters) are tabled. While the mentalist looks away, the spectator makes an unknown number of moves, freely mixing and turning over the items. The spectator can stop at any time when there are just two items face up. She then completely covers these with her left and right hands. The mentalist turns back and, using a pendulum or other means, correctly identifies each of the covered items.
