Sure Stats by Gerard Zitta

This powerful utility will transcend a simple magic effect, or allow you to innocently bring something mental, emotional, strange, during a normal conversation, or an act.

  • It seems to bring a plausible explanation to people's choices.
  • It will provide misdirection or a logical disconnect, or another layer of deception.
  • It will prepare your audience for a bigger "surprise".
You can use it, and will use it, for your existing routines, and with many topics, as it is quite universal. It needs an easy one-time preparation that costs nothing, and that you can carry with you all the time. It will then look casual and improvised, and can be very easily included into existing routines, card tricks or else, to justify a spectator's free choice.


A spectator is asked to name her favorite cocktail, (or flower, or else - no force), and then, her favorite card (or else - again, no force). You now produce a "proof" that explains or partly justifies their free decisions. NOTE: This can be followed with a kicker ending or effect of your choice. (In this particular example, for instance, you could produce the named card (as in Sure Guess, or with an invisible deck, or any other method you like).

What is it? I don't know how to describe Sure Stats. It's not a stand-alone routine. It's more of icing on the cake--you thought the effect was done, but here's one last, unexpected climax. I've added it as a finisher to a baffling double prediction routine by Dave Forrest. Maybe three climaxes is too much, but I surely like it. What I also like is the information given on how to modify the fake news articles to suit your own utility purposes. You'll have to tinker a little bit, and no, they won't look perfect, but they'll work well enough. I wasn't sure what I was getting when I purchased this, but I'm glad that I spent the small price. It's an example of some really good, out-of-the-box thinking by a smart French mentalist.
