#2 in Cards hot-list
A very easy to do routine in which a black card repeatedly flies from hand to pocket leaving spectators amazed again and again, despite the performer trying to simplify things. All can be examined.
Imagine deliberately counting five cards....four of which are red with only one black. Each and every card is called and shown - without a single false move four cards are tossed to the table and the black card is seen to have vanished. It is reproduced from the pocket. Now Imagine that you can do it again and again each time eliminating one red card to make it easier for the public to follow the effect. Despite this the audience will be each time more puzzled and amazed. The climax comes when you use only two cards and they transpose instantly. Immediately you can toss them on the table to be examined by the spectators.
This is as sweet as honey. The vanish of the card is the cutest thing you have ever seen. No moves, no sleights, the odd card just appears to fade away. A good trick you can work right away and it's an entertaining fooler. The original idea is from Frank Garcia and Ken De Courcy has routined it to give you the maximum impact on the audience and, yes, the routine is complete with Ken’s humorous patter.
- Easy to do
