This ABSOLUTELY can be done with a borrowed deck. It is entirely possible you missed the tip as to how that is possible.


It was so long and boring that I play it fast forward, so I may have missed the tip, yes Smile

Hey Everyone,

I'm truly excited to share this with you all.

Yes - this is a Magician fooler but more importantly, it's a fun, easy routine that real people love.


If you see me lecture on my US lecture tour that I'm currently on you will see this live, I know you'll love it.

Thanks all.

Hey guys,

So I don't know Chris personally, but have Skyped with him a few times, back when he was going to release IDD.

Chris is a smart cookie, who has some great material out there.

I must admit the only routine of Chris's that I have used in the past is IDD, but this One Card Poker will be my second.

Basically, what you see in the demo is what you get.

You can use your own deck, or with a little imagination if you want to fool your fellow magicians, you can borrow a deck and do this.

This is something that will totally fry laymen and magicians because of the structuring of the routine and all the shuffling that is done.

The method is 2 parts, and I like the way that it is layered, very beautifully pieced together.

This is something that you will use and be ready to rock and roll anytime anywhere.

You can do everything hands off, and you don't even have to touch the deck.

For $9.95 this is a no brainer. highly recommended, and worthy of study.

Chris credits all the right people for this sort of effect, from Chad Long, to Ben Earl, and more.

Great download, and well worth the price.

Love these types of effects that seem so fair.

This is the type of magic you would probably see buried in a Steve Beam Semi Automatic book.

I replayed the video, sorry I'm still missing the part where he says something about this. To be honest, I'm still playing it with a lot of fast forwards because I can't possibly watch a 1-hour long video for such a simple trick.

I think this trick is not for me anyway. BTW I don't think it' a magician fooler too, while there are several card tricks on P3 which wow-ed me, this one is not one of them. But I guess it will depend of magic history and habits of each of us.

Best it remains a secret from you, then. Some things you should have to at least put the work of watching a one hour video in. If you can’t do that well, I just don’t know...

I just bought this and love it...I especially like the fact that it includes several live performances, so you can get a better understanding of the flow of the routine.
Maybe not for everyone, but I'm happy I bought this, and will def use it.

It's hard to take people seriously that can't be arsed watching an hour vid and giving it a go...

I liked it, very minor set up...you can do it impromptu, but a) what normal person owns a deck? B) bring your own tools to the table, you've been hired

I have an idea for a subtle wordy version of this using flash cards...

Is there a requirement to p@@m the aces whilst the remainder of the deck is shuffled?

Nope. And nothing has to go back into the case either.

So is there a full uncut demo of this? I am only asking because some here are saying that this is a magicians fooler. If that is the case then I would think there would not be a problem showing a full uncut performance vid? Fair?

A full uncut demo would not reveal any useful info to you. This is GOOD. Best $ spent on a single effect.

Hey Everyone,

So I have a day off from my USA Lecture tour, and wanted to check in again.

Cho7 - I've spent many years thinking about my Magic. The things I really perform like this, and everything else, I could talk about for much longer than an hour. I'm glad that you like the effect, and by no means do you have to watch the whole thing however...I've read, watched, re watched, re read, thought about and re examined every piece of Magic & Mentalism I've seriously wanted to perform, spending much longer than an hour doing those things above. I always try to over deliver, as I wuld rather give you a full download with every detail covered than not.

Also remember that this download is aimed at multiple skill levels and multiple levels of understanding.

I hope some of you make it out to one of my lectures and see this live.

What I LOVE about this routine is the playful presentation I've created, that ends with a VERY surprising conclusion.

In buying this or watching the trailer you already know the end result, but spectators see the production of four aces as a total surprise, and that's why this get's such great reactions.

I'm so happy to hear that so many are already using this.

I appreciate the support.

Christopher

Well it’s very reasonably priced, and unlike most Penguin products there’s no useless (to us anyway) items sent in the post.

Lol. Really? If you think I am looking to suss the method out you are greatly mistaken MitchC. If it's really that good and a magician's fooler there should be no reason and uncut demo video cannot be posted. When the Creator makes the statement that this is a magician's fooler then my thoughts are let's see a full demo video.

As a matter of fact you just stated that an uncut video will not reveal anything so apparently you must agree that and uncut demo video can be posted?

But it's important to remember that what very well may be a magician fooler after the first viewing may not continue to be after repeated viewings so I can understand why a full demo is often not provided in these instances.

I could not have said this better myself. Trailers are not here to give out free Magic. The OCP trailer is very fair, the effect is as shown and described.

And RNK - it's less than $10... I would understand your viewpoint if we were asking $100 or $1000.

I hope that helps.
