Allan Ackerman

Allan Ackerman
Stop! by Allan Ackerman

Allan Ackerman
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.

Allan Ackerman
Cards Across by Allan Ackerman

This is a routine Allan Ackerman developed in the early 1970s where he tried to achieve the cards across effect with as little motion as possible. He also added a visual card vanish. Later Paul Harris took this routine and turned it into his famous Sleeper routine.

A spectator picks a card. A second spectator cuts off a small portion of the deck, counts the cards, and puts the counted cards in a safe place. The performer then attempts to magically add as many cards to the second spectator's pack as the value of the card the first spectator chose.

I have known Peter and Jerry since they first became interested in conjuring and have been amazed at their rapid progress in the art of conjuring with cards. Their work shows considerable originality, combined with ingenious methods and an acute awareness of what makes a good audience trick. Studying their tricks will give you pleasure - performing them...

Alan Rorrison
HypnoMSN by Alan Rorrison

This is incredible. Technology enabled magic at its best. You will read this and say: "No way, impossible, how can that be?"

You will control if they can login or not. It's the effect that has secured Alan more bookings via online communication than any other effect.

Puzzled by Bob Cassidy

THE ONLY VERSION OF THE CLASSIC PUZZLE EFFECT THAT APPEARS TO BE A NEAR TEST CONDITIONS IMPOSSIBILITY.

The method used in Puzzled is completely original with Bob Cassidy. It is based on an "out-of-left-field logical disconnect" that will positively fool anyone who sees it.

The premise of the effect was created by the late English mentalist, Romark, back in the 1970's. A few years ago there was a minor hissy fit in the magic world about the creation and ownership of a jigsaw puzzle effect involving an image of the Mona Lisa. (But apart from the fact that the effect used a jigsawed version of...

21st Century Q&A by Bob Cassidy

The Question Answering Act - or "Audience Reading" as it is more commonly called today - has always been the major effect in mentalism. Q&A, while arguably the most powerful and memorable effect in mentalism, is rarely seen today because it does not fit into the "body language/perceptionist" persona and style - its only explanations would appear to be pure mind reading or, as it was originally presented, communication with the spirits.

Here, in this ebook for the experienced mentalist - is a complete collection of original modern methods and, more importantly - presentations - for this classic...
