You can blur anyone's face? Does it work without the wineglass?

Yes, this can be done exactly as depicted. And 100% reliably... roughly once in every 52 performances.

Yes, my sentiments exactly.

Or 52 out of 52 performances

The impressive part is real-time selective blurring with an empty wineglass. For the card trick... ask the guy who's been doing that bit for years what he thinks of your version - better yet see how it works if you get a chance to perform it for him.

Incorrect. I'll repeat (with emphasis): This can be done exactly as depicted roughly once in every 52 performances.

There is no "holy grail" of ACAAN and never will be - not under true test conditions (with the deck completely out-of-hand, no stooging or pre-show work, no constraints on the two selections, etc.). It's a bloody unicorn. But by all means... anyone interested in spending $2,400 on something else, more power to ya!

First, let me apologize: I believe I was the first to call this the holy grail of card magic when flogging my version, "Dekronomicon." The line has now been adapted by others, all claiming, as I did, that this is the method! See:

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S9615

Second, the trick, as shown in the video, can be done every single time. It will never miss. The secret: the magician is the old lady, not the guy pretending to be the magician. As she shuffles, she glimpses or controls a card to a known position. Maybe that's why her face is blurred out--her glimpsing is too obvious.

Nah, I recognized her--that's Madam Babina Sabina, the Gypsy Enchantress. She does an act with a crystal ball, a deck of cards and a baboon. The baboon deals poker hands, then, when it gets really amped up, eats the deck and swallows the crystal ball.

The "Any Card at Any Number" plot was called the "'holy grail' of card workers" in the ads for David Britland's Berglas book in 2002.

Rick Johnsson called Chris Kenworthy and Hiro Hirata's "Any Card at Any Number-Mastermind" a "holy grail" in a review in the June 1987 Linking Ring.

I feel so much better. I wasn't responsible, just another hanger on. I guess a new phrase will have to be created. Perhaps, the unicorn of card magic, or the El Dorado of Card Magic.

I think there are many holy grails in card magic. The one that comes to mind, for me, is The Hooker Rising Card.

How so? Something practical for closeup, perhaps? Unicorns... kinda got strange when grownups started fussing with "my little pony".

How about a writeup of the basic "french drop" in English? :)

Why would this be a holy grail? The literature is full of such writeups.

I dozed off after about the twelve time this guy shuffled the cards.

Incidentally, in my new book, The Bammo Gaffus Maximus, there is an ACANN-like effect but the big difference is you immediately repeat the effect. Details soon.

Try any of them. Does it make sense, include how to know if you've done the action(s) correctly? What's the "tourniquet" part? "The literature" is funny that way.

thoughts..please. :o :o :o :o


To start - the deck needs to be in their hands. Also, they count.

If you want the cards displayed face up... have them count the cards that way to the table.

I like the tablecloth.

hmmm curious - recalls an item in Apocalypse where Harry Lorayne and Ken Krenzel explored an idea.

I like the table cloth and green rubber bands. And your persistence is admirable. Learning from audience feedback is an adventure.
