#2 Coins, Chips & Buttons author

Paul Lelekis is the 2011-2012 winner of The Howard Bamman Trophy for The Linking Ring magazine and he is a consultant, reviewer and writer for The Linking Ring. Paul has had three of his effects published in J. K. Hartman's latest best-selling book, Card Dodgery. Paul has been "underground" for many years and wishes to share his effects and accumulated knowledge of magic and performing. With 28 years of steady restaurant work, 35 years of bar experience, corporate shows, community shows, many, many 3-day festivals - and of course, hundreds and hundreds of children's birthday parties Paul has quite a bit of experience to share. Paul's magic has been featured in many periodicals and magic newsletters around the world. Paul has been honored with seven One-Man Parades in the Linking Ring magazine, 3 Mini-Parades, and he wrote and conducted a Ring Parade for ring 42 in Clearwater...and at the time, ring 42 was the third largest ring in the world with often 200 members in attendance.

Paul has been on the I.B.M. Public Relations Committee for years, having once served as as the Committee Chairman. He was also lecture chairman for the 2001 Florida Magician's Convention - he performed regularly for the WWC Wrestlers and the American Gladiators. Paul had a book called Maximum Impact in the late 1990's.

"When I met Paul many years ago I was struck by his intensity. He was deeply interested in the potential “horse-power” of strong or subtle methods. He sought ideas that drive magic past thresholds of self-satisfaction, and whenever he performs you detect this energy. Paul embodies the spirit of the hard-core professional. He never stops mulling over ways to vary, tweak, modify, and perhaps improve every aspect of what he does. I am pleased to call him my friend." - Jon Racherbaumer

"Paul Lelekis is a real magician. He makes his living performing for laymen, and as a result, has a keen sense of what really fools a room full of laypeople. His tricks are entertaining, fun to watch and always pack a wallop! He’s one of the most knowledgeable guys I know! If you want to learn how to make a living doing magic, listen to what he has to say. You won’t be disappointed!" - Jim Swain (magician & author)

Quote from Windy & Sunny “Paul’s card magic will blow you away!”

"…it's hard to imagine another magician with the same combination of technique, entertaining skills and enthusiasm, and I have little doubt that this unique combination of ingredients comes through, radiantly, in his performances. As a personal side-note, his card magic has provided many sources of inspiration for my own thinking over the years, and I'm certain it will have the same effect on others." - J. K. Hartman

SECOND, the dealer asks a spectator, at which hand is the shill supposedly sitting, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th hand...the 5th is the dealer's hand. When the spectator...

A Topological Trio by Paul A. LelekisFeaturing THE ULTIMATE TORN & RESTORED CARD!

1) There have been many, many ways to perform the Torn & Restored Card over the years, but Paul Lelekis has created a brilliant, brand new version!

Imagine removing a single card from the deck, with empty hands and then, VERY OPENLY, tearing it in half (without ANY cover at all) and then restore it into a single playing card. You then sign the card and hand it out as a souvenir - with absolutely NO clues.

There are NO extra pieces of card to add, NO duplicate cards (except for the construction of the gimmick), NO additions, NO awkward moves,...

Coins Thru Table by Paul A. LelekisFirst of all let me explain that this Coins Thru Table routine can also be used as a Coins Across routine, which is a routine I've been using for about 28 years while table-hopping.

This routine is unlike any other routine you've seen. 5 coins are used (one contrasting coin) and all are regular coins. No shells, no hidden props, no gaffed coins are used. Carry these 5 coins in your pocket and you will be ready to perform an impromptu miracle that will really "shake up" your spectators. And it's simple to do. In addition, there are NO weird sleights or 'knuckle-busters' used in this routine....
