I think what drphil is recommending is to get a break at the estimated point, and glimpse at your estimation (peaking into the break). This way you can adjust the break up or down a card or two before the cut, vs. cutting the deck twice.

I think so as well,which matches the boxed example I posted(close enough).

Jan's post was of the essence of method, when takin into context,but thinking of just the cased method,i see where drphil is coming from.

Jeebs9, Penguin is out of stock. Thanks anyway though.

It seems everywhere is out of stock. Was this a limited edition?

Hi Matthew, it appears hocus-pocus.com has it in stock. MJM Magic currently shows they will be receiving more copies on August 15. If you're willing to wait, copies do show up every once in while for sale on the Café (I got my copy a couple of weeks ago). Good luck.

I have enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to attending his lecture and workshop when he is in Toronto in a couple of weeks.

The ACAAN is, in my humble opinion, the only named-card CAAN out there worth performing. The move is so simple and diabolical that I still can't catch it with repeat watching of Asi's performances (I bought the trick separately through Dan and Dave and don't regret it.)

My second favourite is Barrie Richardson's Impromptu CAAN, but that requires a physical selection. Barrie's solution to the named card ACAAN in Theatre of the Mind puts suspicious restrictions on the number range. Asi's solution does not.

Just saw Asi last night at a lecture. Everything he performed and taught is extremely thought out with attention to every detail. He performed new material as well as items from Chapter One. I agree that his ACAAN is great along with other items from the booklet. A must read!

Does anyone have any idea how difficult it is to riffle count ANY number of cards while they are still in the box? SHEESH! This is a terrific method but it is downright impossible unless you employ a way to easily and quickly riffle to the right number of cards without looking. Even Matthew Johnson's version is difficult. Anyone know of a method where the deck can be out on the table before the card and number are named that doesn't involve Asi Wind's method in regards to uncasing the deck?


Asi Wind's version does not require a "riffle count" but as this is not a protected forum it wouldn't be prudent to get into methods, etc. I love this version and on the RARE occasion I do an ACAAN, this is one of the two that I perform.


Agreed, Steven. I bought the trick from D&D. Asi elucidates the method very clearly. I avoid knuckle busters like the plague, but even I have this down more or less. I can't do the move as imperceptibly as Asi does in the videos, but it isn't nearly as difficult as Magicmagician83 implies. Things have to set up correctly, though, and Asi covers this in Chapter One and even more throughly, with some refinements, in the AACAAN video download.
