Is there a way to mix up the deck with some cards facing down and others facing up, then bang they are all mysterously facing down (or up)?

I have seen this done in a magic store in Atlanta, but never got the chance to find out what it was called.

"Triumph," one of the classics of magic. There are a million variations. Pick your favorite.

If this explanation is 100% correct, it is not 'Triumph'.

Easiest way I know of is with a Stripper Deck...

That demonstration sounds like a Slop Shuffle to me.

It does require a sloppy mix of face up and face down cards
and a cut and reversal at the natural break to correct all.

It is a very old effect that had me fooled when I first saw it.
I really do miss the days when simplistic methods were perplexing.

G. LaBarre,
Anyone ever tell you that you look like Steve Jobs (founder of Apple Computer) ?

Triumph is not the name of the trick that I mentioned in original post at the top. The nameless trick that I mentioned is all done in the hands without a table. It's extremely easy to do.

I just viewed the video that LongDuckChang mentioned from youtube. It's Triumph done by someone name Mystico, and wow he is good. Mystico does a fantastic job of the Pass as well.

I Recently learned one version of Triumph yesterday, but Mystico does it better and I cannot figure out how he does it. Fooled me completely.

Many thanks
Keith

Sorry, I am getting my post mixed up.

Triumph is the trick that I was searching for. Thank you all for leading me in the right direction.

I am glad to see that there are many versions of Triumph. Saw it done three different ways and they all claimed to be the Dai Vernon method. Mystico really the best I have seen so far, but I get the impression he goes further than what Dai Vernon teaches. I am no expert, just the impression I got from what I saw.

Many thanks.

It sounds like they did a Slop Shuffle followed by a secret cut or pass, like a Charlier or one-handed cut. Phil Thomas, the Baltimore Magic Dealer used to do this, and also used it as a way to separate the red and black cards for a follow up effect.
Woke up.

No, never. But thanks. I wish I had his Money.
Then I could buy all the Magic I wanted.
I'm not sure, but if he went to school in Toronto,
I think he was one of the Geeks at Central Technical School.
