Sorry to be lame and ask about another CA effect but this one is killing me. The spectator grabs a chunk of cards and CA tells which ones the spectator. is lookin at. Back is turned and all that... He goes through like ten cards. Anything published anywhere.

Ok, Anneman's practical mental magic.
Buy the book from Amazon, read the whole thing and you will know how to do the effect.

I believe that routine was Card Calling using Osterlind's Breakthrough Card System. Pick up the ebook, it's fifteen dollars and there's nothing but gold.

Yes, the effect that you saw Criss Angel performing is, without a doubt, Osterlind's "Card Calling" routine using the Breakthrough Card System. If you are not familiar with this system and are serious about mentalism, get familiar with it now! There are so many ways to use this system and the results, if used correctly, are absolutely mind boggling. Buy it, learn it, love it and live it. You will not be let down.

Dan Tong was in the middle and he made it entertaining. Smile

Aditionally, I saw Dan do most of the bits that were on the Angel show, years ago.

I don't know how Osterlind's one works. But it looks like it's very similar to the mind deck by John Kennedy.
Am I wrong?

No it isn't like Mind Power Deck! It is much more versatile and it is ungimmicked (You really can't compare the two).

Check out BCS... It is the best bargain in mentalism, and is nearly limitless in application. Trust me you will love it.

Best Wishes,
Sean

I don't know about origin or anything like that but I do have Osterlinds second series and the EXACT effect is in there as well as the E-book. Just a heads up you will need to learn his BCS.

Performers were doing this long before Osterlind.
Dunninger did it, as did Koran, Beglas, Canasta and others.
