Name of a cut

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Name of a cut

Postby Bogd19 » December 31st, 2020, 7:28 pm

I was wondering what the “cut” is called when you have a two halves and a car”swings” out of the pack. If you watch David Copperfield do his Grandpa Ace trick, he reveals the ACES this way. I’m trying to learn it but don’t know what the move is called. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I think you are referring to the Piet Forton pop out move.

Would I have to buy those notes or are they available online? That link was confusing

The move is explained in many places, since it is so popular. It's also in either Pallbearers Review or Epilogue. I'm sure there are online tutorials.

The best description (of which I am aware) of the Piet Forton Pop-out Move can be found here: https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/card- ... revisited/ It includes lots of little details that other descriptions omit. Another really good description can be found in here: https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic ... n-gambler/ (plus a boatload of other great magic)

And you can do it with one hand!

For further references in the Archive, I suggest a search like that: https://www.conjuringarchive.com/list/s ... on+pop+out

Thanks for the help! I was referring to the conjuring webpage you have provided links and seem a bit baffled. Does that webpage only provide a book to look stuff up in and the you have to purchase said book or am I missing something?

Conjuring Archive does not contain the content; it tells you where things are.

As illustrated by the Chief Genii in At The Card Table by Darwin Ortiz, recently back in print. It's a lovely revelation in the Nine Card Location.

Yes and no. One column in Conjuring Archive is labeled "AA", for AskAlexander. If there is a check mark in that column for a particular reference, there may be access to the page in AskAlexander, depending on your subscription level.

So some of the references can be available to examine.

Yes, but the credit in At the Card Table to Piet Forton is missing. He was the first to do his creation with one hand.
