Some of you might think the counting is too slow. There are 2 reasons for this; 1. Hypnotized is a slow song, and 2. if I counted them too fast, the subtitles wouldn't be able to go as fast as the video and thus go out of sync.

I liked it. Nice flow and a logical conclusion. Handling was plenty clean enough, though the 2-as-4 displays won't get by in "fast" company (magicians and/or poker players). Perfect "astonishment" type trick for a soft audience - and I liked the music, too.

On the "Tenaki" turnover of the deck I would suggest moving your right hand to begin gathering up the remaining cards just a moment before your left hand moves forward to place the deck down. This alone will [at least] divide the attention, and the patter should finish the job of focusing their eyes on the right hand and keeping them from catching the turnover.

True. Personally though, I don't perform magic to magicians to try to fool them, only to get feedback. To me, magic is meant for spectators, not magicians. That's also why I find magic competitions pointless.
