Trick from Steve Forte article

Postby Guest » September 27th, 2005, 12:41 pm

In the article on Steve Forte there is a reference to a trick from Harry Lorayne's Close-Up Card Magic called Aces to Kings. I can't find it in my copy of the book. Can anyone offer me some info? Thanks.

Is there a trick where four Aces turn into four Kings?

This sounds like a variant on Four-in-Hand. Four-in-Hand is in the Curry Turnover Change Section of Close-Up Card Magic. The plot is that 4 spectators' chosen cards are shifted around on the table to confuse the spectators on their card locations. When the cards are turned over they have transformed into the aces. The spectators' cards are produced from the pockets. If only one spectator was available, it would be a simple jump to use Aces and Kings instead.

There is a trick called Favorite Aces and Kings in Lorayne's Deck-sterity but the plot is entirely different.
