Re: Does This Card Trick EXIST ?

Then think of number and shuffle more cards on top so counting works. I don't see that happening. No peeling of single cards. Woman shuffles cards in peculiar way. Like amateur, but more careful. She clearly peeks at cards by tilting top half of deck, several times. This is probably purpose of wine...

Re: Does This Card Trick EXIST ?

One thing is true of all magic. Is necessary when doing "the impossible" to imply there is no way, but in reality, cover up method. With pure ACAAN, you need to deny or not mention your method. The guy in this vid did not claim no stooges. He did not handle cards, and he did not tell woman...

Re: Does This Card Trick EXIST ?

Thanks to Jack Shalom for link. Now I see how boring this trick is. Only interesting to magicians who believe no stooges or forced cards. Regular audience no more impressed than for any other card trick. Of course this is impossible ACAAN. Except by luck. Woman was instructed to think of card (then ...

Re: Does This Card Trick EXIST ?

I swear that the ACAAN is the most over rated card trick in history. The people I have seen do it take too long and waffle too much. By the time they get to the end of the trick people have forgotten what the beginning was. I swear this trick is what old time magicians called "conjuring for co...

Re: Does This Card Trick EXIST ?

I'm sorry to tell you that this is not the way to properly perform Any Card at Any Number. Perhaps my description is unclear. Is simple formula. One volunteer think a card, another think number from 1-52. Difference is only that person to count cards is chosen by lottery. Magician may decide how ma...

Re: Magic Community in TOTAL SILENCE as Youtube Magician EXPOSES Hundreds of Magic Tricks

I think exposure is challenge to creative mind. I am not afraid if someone expose secret of trick on YouTube. How does that work for you as you get critiqued as you perform? Hey, nice getready for the tilt! Did you buy your shell from Todd or Jamie? I do not understand. I never perform trick as it ...

Re: Does This Card Trick EXIST ?

Point had been made that is impossible to "properly" perform trick to work every time. Is there "proper way" to be successful, or just proper way to take chance?

This is only way I know to be sure, without stooge or manipulation of cards.

Re: Does This Card Trick EXIST ?

Not sure which trick this is about, but comments refer to ACAAN. Some say is impossible to do without stooge, or performer touch cards. Here is thought: Must have stacked deck, know position of all cards. Borrowed deck may be switched if same design. Have chart showing relative position of each card...

Re: Magic Community in TOTAL SILENCE as Youtube Magician EXPOSES Hundreds of Magic Tricks

I think exposure is challenge to creative mind. I am not afraid if someone expose secret of trick on YouTube. The purpose of performing illusion is to cover up secret. Just do this in different way. Is very simple to disguise secret. Change props, change story, change moves. Fear of exposure is for ...

Re: Telling lies as a magician.

Huge difference between telling story and lying. Fiction is art, Magic is art. But lying is cheating. Like running race and taking short path. Example: Three Shell Game. Make it look like pea is under middle shell. This is magical deception. To look under shell and say that it not there is bad perfo...

Re: Telling lies as a magician.

Yes, Art of Magic is to produce illusion, not lie. To say, "I did not steal" is not illusion, is denial. Anyone can lie, but good magician have skills to alter perception of reality with no false statements.
