Hey everyone, what are the tricks you do most often? If this has already been asked before just post the link and lock the thread. Smile

Anyway, I do Daley Show, Biddle Trick, Questionable Trick, Mambo Nº5, Three Card Monte and a bunch more. In the near future I'll start working my way through Crash Course 2, for an ambitious card routine. When I get Dough and ID Deck decently down I think I'll do them often as well. Smile

I do Triumph, Dr. Daley's last trick, twisting the aces and reset a lot.
One trick that I think is over performed is two card monte. Just my two cents. Smile

I used to perform two card monte a lot, but I realized how many people perform it and that kind of turned me off...

I don't really enjoy the Two Card Monte that much, but that's because the T** change is not on my priority practice list Smile Smile but I agree the effect is strong, but it kind of looks like the Daley Show, but it's harder than the Daley Show. (At least the versions I know, I learned Two Card Monte from illusionist and Daley Show from Penguin, are these effects the same as yours? Is Penguin's Daley Show the same as Dr. Daley's last trick?)

Whenever someone hands me a deck of cards, I go into my Ambitious Card routine. It is easy to follow and I get a great reaction. Also, the Ambitious Card can be performed without patter and still make sense, therefore, if you are performing in a loud area or for people that don't speak the same language, the trick still has the same effect.

I haven't seen Crash Coarse 2 but I would suggest Darryl's Ambitious Card DVD. It covers just about every good move for and Ambitious Card routine. Get the DVD, not the tape. You will want to go back to different sections and skip around.

Daley Last Trick and Triumph. These card tricks I probably use and practice every day.

I know I did, but that's because I'm not sure how it's written and I just write it in different ways. But is Daley Show and Daley's last trick the exact same trick ?

Just learned the Crazy Man's Handcuffs and fell in love with it (well, at least for now). I have been carrying a few rubber bands round my wrist and will be ready at a moment's notice. Great effect!

All the best!

Yes it is. Penguinmagic just renamed it.

The "Two-Card Monte" is similar in effect to Dr. Daley's Last Trick but it requires more advanced sleights and a more complicated handling, however, it is more convincing.

My most requested magic is the H.P.C. coins through table. And the sponge bunnies.

Triumph, Beswitched, and $2 Bill Tear, are my most repeated tricks and often most requested. Any deck of cards and my wallet and I am ready to go. Smile

  2. A version of Bill Malone's "My Favorite Opener"
  3. Scotch & Soda
  4. MacDonald's Aces
  5. Last Trick of Dr. Jacob Daley's
  6. "Cutting Tens" from the Malone Tapes
  7. My version of "Remember and Forget", from the All Stars volume 2 edition from Gary Kurtz, except I use 10 cards with five people. My presentation, and methodology is a little different, and for a kicker the first set (the tabled cards) appear face-up in the deck at the end.

  9. A Card to Pocket or Impossible Location
  10. A poker routine using a Faro Shuffle

Invisible Deck. Gets 'em every time! I pull out Red Hot Mama a lot too, but I just learned how to really do it right recently. CMH is a favorite too!

I like the Ambitious Card a lot. I also use a lot of ace tricks. Smile

I find myself performing the Ambitious Card and my sponge ball routine often.

But the one effect I perform the most is probably Dr. Daley's Last Trick, due to the versatile performing conditions it allows for.
