What do you think are the top 5 card tricks that can be done with a regular borrowed deck of cards.

1. Ambitious Card
2. Out of this world

Hello, Mr Biro,

What is the "Bullet Card Trick "????

What is the effect, as I never heard that one before.

Thanks in advance for the info.

I believe Mr. Biro is speaking of Ken Krenzel's Gun Trick. It can be found on Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Card Miracles, Vol. 5.

How do you do Red Hot Mama and Triumph with a borrowed deck? I know Bannons "Play it Straight" triumph and I don't consider that a trick I'd do with a borrowed deck. Too much of a set up for me.
Gemini Twins, now that I can handle.
Do As I Do.
Daily's last trick.
Ambitious Card.

(1) Ambitious Card (any variation thereof)
(2) Out of Sight... Out of Mind
(3) Do as I Do
(4) Twisting the Aces (followed by...)
(5) The Last Trick of Dr. Daley

And a cheeky (6) The Zingone Spread (this one really taxes my shuffling abilities, and I practice it for this reason)

My choices would have to be:

-Ambitious Card
-Dr. Daley's Last Trick
-Twisting the Aces
-Design for Laughter (Royal Road)

These aren't in any particular order; they are just the ones that come to mind.

I see twisting the aces posted several times. Expecially suprised to see this on Pete Biro's list since he has seen it all, and should know better. I have to disagree. I think it is rather uninteresting, lame, finger fiddling with the cards.

Can someone explain to me what the effect is supposed to be? So some cards turn over, why should anyone care? What is the message for the audience? Specifically, where is there an interesting presentation for this?

Sorry to be so cranky.

I am putting on my flack jacket and awaiting your responses.
