Mark E. Beck
The Emulators by Mark E. Beck

Effect:

The spectator selects a card from the performer’s deck and does not reveal it to the performer until requested to do so. The performer then shows a packet of four Jokers to the spectator, displaying the faces and backs of all four cards. He then asks the spectator to wave his selected card over the Jokers he is holding in his hand. When the performer turns the packet face up and displays the cards, they are no longer Jokers! Instead, all four cards are now identical to the spectator’s selected card!

But that’s not all! When the performer squares the four cards back together,...

S. W. Erdnase
The Erdnase Notebook by S. W. Erdnase

This is the workers edition of Erdnase's The Expert at the Card Table. Produced as a letter sized three ring binder so that one can insert note pages anywhere one wishes to take notes, printed in large font (16pt) on heavy coated durable paper, so that it can be read from a distance.

David Malek, who came up with this specially designed format, explains in his introduction:

... I thought of an oversized edition, one that would lie flat on the table and be big enough to read from a foot or more away. The advantage of size would also facilitate working through the book with cards in hand, while having your eyes on the text and...

Michael Kociolek
The Expert by Michael Kociolek

The spectator names any number of hands, any rank of poker hand he wants, and which player should get the named hand. The performer states that he will deal the best hand of the chosen rank, and he fulfills the spectator's request. Everything from a genuinely shuffled deck. No palms, no magnets. Just good old, gluten-free card sharping.

This is one of many effects that can be performed after reading The Expert.

This 64-page ebook covers the history of the Any Poker Hand Called For plot, Michal's modified version of the stack, and how to quickly and invisibly set it up from a shuffled deck....

S. W. Erdnase
The Expert at the Card Table by S. W. Erdnase

Originally entitled Artifice Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table, is probably the most cited and referenced book about card gambling moves - a classic in the history of magic literature. A must read for any card magician or aspiring gambling expert and an indespensable reference book. While the authorship of this book is hotly debated we are convinced it was Edward Gallaway. (For a detailed work on the search for Erdnase see Hurt McDermott's Artifice, Ruse & Erdnase.)

[A copy of this book is also included in Michael McDougall's Card Mastery. This ebook is also available in a German translation.

Luke Jermay
The Extended Tossed Out Deck by Luke Jermay

From the introduction:

The Tossed Out Deck is an extremely popular and possibly the best neo-classical plot in mentalism. Over the last 15 years, this effect has made its way into the performance repertoire of many mentalists and magicians the world over, seeing a huge surge in popularity, likely due to the number of high profile performers’ personalized versions of the effect, such as Max Maven, Ted Lesley, and Docc Hilford.

I, myself, have used the Tossed Out Deck effect to open many stand-up performances, and feel it is genuinely one of the best opening routines for a performance. It packs...

Mike Kempner
The Fairest Hands-Off Open Prediction by Mike Kempner

Would you like to control the physical actions of your spectator, and in the process make an impossible prediction? The beauty of this particular effect is that it is absolutely hands-off and 100% fair. The performer DOES NOT touch the cards once the effect begins. The performer only touches a card case once with the cards inside. Furthermore, the deck of cards can be borrowed. This truly is an astonishing display of skill, as you create a very special hands-off open prediction.

You provide (or ask a spectator to provide) 2 decks of cards, one blue and one red. They are both lying flat on...

The Fly by David Devlin

This is a very powerful routine. So powerful, in fact, that David has kept it to himself for over twenty years! It is perfect for all performers regardless of their performing venue. That's right. This is a card trick that can be performed anytime and anywhere. It can be performed close-up or on stage even though it uses a standard deck. It is totally impromptu, uses no gimmicks, has audience participation, and you are not touching the cards when the magic happens. The magic takes place while the cards are in the hands of the spectators! Here is the effect (in a close-up performance):

The Fortuitous ACAAN by Abhinav Bothra

A virtually self-working ACAAN with plenty of audience involvement.

We all know whenever the audience tries to reverse engineer or recreate a trick and fail at it; they conclude with a common statement - He must have done something sneaky.

The Fortuitous ACAAN works to counter just that. It brings wonder out of the hands of the performer at the same time ensures that the control always rests with him. Here is how it goes:

A deck gets shuffled by 4 people while 3 other people decide on the Number, Value and Suit. The shuffled deck gets collected and the cards get dealt face-up and the...

The Funniest Three Card Monte in the World by Ferry Gerats

Three card monte. Almost no skill. The given presentation guarantees lots of laughs.

Why the funniest?

Well, here is what happens: The routine starts with a funny joke about a three-card-monte player. The joke conjures up a crazy image in the minds of the audience that elicits huge laughter. The next laugh comes from the fact that the spectator who is invited to play the betting-game is asked to keep track of the odd card while it is clear that the odd card has grown in size and protrudes from the other cards. With the 1st round of the betting-game there comes a laugh when it is clear...

B. W. McCarron
The Gambling Magician by B. W. McCarron

From the Introduction:

Within the pages of this volume, the reader will find many effects which may easily be incorporated into a program of exposes, or as part of a manipulative act. None of the effects discussed in the first section require sleights more difficult than the doublelift. Many a performer will want to credit the occurrences to his own skill - even though none is involved. While at no time should the Lecturer attribute the happenings to "magic", a fairly plausible cause is sleight-of-hand.

Included in Section II of this volume, I have given the reader an illustrated...

This second volume of The Gaming Table is from a magician's point of view much more interesting. It includes a history of dice and playing cards including a fairly detailed description of how playing cards were made. It has a chapter on fortune telling with cards. And it also features a surprisingly good chapter on card tricks with explanations for four sleights (false shuffle, false cut, glide, card change) and 18 very nice card tricks. Among them we find a version of the prearranged deck and two person codes.

For people interested in Erdnase it is interesting to note that at the beginning of the...
