The problem I have with this effect is that it is so visual and direct that I am afraid spectators would understand that there is something "strange" with the cards… in my opinion, it is important that the spectator can DOUBT about what is happening and about the method… here there's no place for doubt, the card is here, and one second later is there, without any kind of move… spectators aren't stupid… or there is real magic going on, or the cards are somehow gimmicked as there is almost no move at all in the moment when the magic happens. This is my major concern with this, although it is a beautiful effect


I think to combat this, it's good to do this effect relatively quickly. When things happen quickly, they are simply trying to keep up and follow what's going on and they don't really have time to really analyze what is happening.

I do the "Stand Up Monte" very often, and it never failed. Works fine Smile. I have made some ideas on my own, to switch three cards at the end (two of them are necessary, but its easier in the packet), so that I am complete clean. Stand Up Monte is a nice quick routine, easy to learn (yeah, you have to learn, but its not complicated).

Stupid question here ......

Can I do the Stand Up Monte whilst seated? I am pretty much almost always seated you see. Smile

I would say yes, don't see any real problems.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Thanks for the reply George.

I bit the bullet and ordered it from Free post magic (brilliant service by the way wwww.freepostmagic.co.uk ).

I'll up date when I try it out - just in case anyone else needs to know.

Cheers all and have a happy new year.

Stand Up Monte is my favorite Monte card routine. I like to do it fast. They don’t what hit them when all the cards change at the end. It’s a powerful routine.

This is a killer effect!
On the DVD Garett does an 'over the shoulder' tutorial which brings it all home.
Don't hesitate with this just buy it - then practise, practise, practise!

I love this trick!!! Does take a little while to get all the moves and patter down but like many others here I also use my right front trouser pocket as I rarely wear a waistcoat or a shirt with chest pockets.

I just wish that for these types of effects, the creator would include a single written page of instructions that briefly outline the routine, or even a PDF file.
It would cost virtually nothing and save buyers from having to do it themselves, which is actually fairly time consuming to go thru the DVD and keep pausing and writing.
Then if you do need to relearn it at some point, it's a simple matter to see what the initial set up is and reacquaint yourself with any parts you are unsure of.

You can get this with written instructions for half the price of the DVD version.
