I'll second the Bullet Train sequence, but I honestly liked it so much that I haven't read any further in the book yet!


I can take that a level deeper... I only do Iconoclastic Aces (one third of Bullet Train)... and only because I (also) have not read any further (yet).

I've been hunting for this but I'm not having any luck finding it. Any idea what year it was?

Not sure, but it could be this. I was showing Discrepancy City Prediction to a magician friend and he showed me a cleaner version. Basically you steal an extra prediction, so you actually have all 4 of a kind. The handling is identical to DCP, but you can actually show all 4 following the EC. Anyone know if this is the version referenced? If not, anyone know the source?
Thanks.

I like sandwich effects and this effect looks so impossible.

I got a new list of bannon effects I love

1. Twisted Sisters
2. Strangers Gallery
3. Heart of the City
4. Play it straight Gallery
5. Beyond Fabulous

I use Heart of the city as ambitious end kicker. I do ambitious card routine first then let them put card somewhere in as I begin new trick(ye the 2 tests:))

I love Dead Reckoning, but don't perform it due to the set-up.

I've just learnt Last Man Standing, which is great, but I get more reaction out of Sankey's Back in Time.

All four bannon books have some great stuff in them. a few of the lesser known effects are the ones I like the best.

Edh,

Thanks. Looking back on it, the double stick tape is a bit lame and unnecessary. However, I am still happy with the patter.

Play It Straight Triumph is wonderful.... One routine I have not seen posted here that really plays well is The Ace Man Cometh from Smoke and Mirrors...A series of "mistakes" keep working they way out to a nice surprise finish

John Bannon is one of my biggest influences in magic, so it's hard to pick one! If I would rank everything up, my final three would be...

1. Final Verdict
2. Dawn Patrol
3. Duplicity

This is one of the most magical ace-cutting routines extant: it's not a display of skill (as are most ace-cutting routines) because the magician never cuts to an ace; rather, he uses magic to correct each errant cut to get a pair (fours), then three-of-a-kind (queens), then four-of-a-kind (aces).
