Moves

This category focuses entirely on card moves - from the basic cuts and shuffles to the bastard hard ones.

Literally hundreds if not thousands of card moves have been developed over time. You won't need to learn all of them, but any card man of name has in each basic move category (palm, control, false shuffle, false cut, false deal, glimpse, flourish, force, ...) one or two strong moves ready to use.

Once you have a solid grounding in the basic moves pretty much any card trick is accessible to you.

Practicing moves can have a zen like quality to it. Some achieve a naturalness similar to a musician, dancer or juggler. It looks effortless, but it can take thousands of hours of practice.

Allan Ackerman
1-2-3-4 Switch by Allan Ackerman

This is a very versatile switch allowing you to switch out one, two, three or four cards from a block of four. Allan got his inspiration from a 3 for 3 switch by Al Leech. One of the interesting parts of this video is that Allan shows the various transitions of his development going from Al Leech's move to Allan's final version.

Aarsh Shah
A'twist by Aarsh Shah

This is an ace twisting routine. The sleight is one handed. No extra cards or gimmicks are used! Just 4 cards and you are ready to go.

It is not easy, and it has some angle issues, too. But if you practice it enough, it opens many possibilities, as it is a one handed move, you can combine it with other tricks. There is also a visual variation which can be used for the ending.

If you love practicing as Aarsh does, you'll love this.

Abhinav Bothra
ABhyaas Change by Abhinav Bothra

ABhyaas Change is a fast and stunning card color change that happens in a split second and a small shake. Often confused to be done using gimmicks, it is 100% IMPROMPTU and requires 100% SLEIGHT OF HAND. Taught here are four different ways of performing this color change and three clean-up options.

[Note: It was brought to my attention that ABhyaas Change looks similar to Cody Nottingham's SOLE Change taught in his release Changes. Later, I found out that both changes are different in terms of grip, secret move, end position etc. It's mere co-incidence that they look similar.

F. R. Ritter
Advantage Card Playing and Draw Poker by F. R. Ritter

The first part and majority of this book deals with marked cards. It shows numerous examples of how and where to mark various back designs popular during the early 20th century in the United States. The second part briefly describes sleight-of-hand for the card cheater such as second dealing, bottom dealing, shuffling, false cuts, and mechanical hold outs. Each technique is illustrated with a photo, which is quite remarkable for a book from that time. The third and final part deals with the mathematical odds of draw poker.

Some people believe that F. R. Ritter might be S. W. Erdnase, the unknown author...
