Spectators find four aces from a shuffled deck. Hope it's really that good. Any reviews?

Chris lectured here in NC recently and fooled the room with this. I bought his notes on it for 2x the price of the Penguin download and am very happy with it. Easy to do, and some great thinking in the routine.

It really is that good. There is so much room to venture presentationally. I don’t get excited over card tricks, but this one is something I’m really excited about.

Good question. Can it be adapted to a one on one performance?

Could you deal three poker hands to one person? 'Ever play Blackjack and split your hand? It's merely an Ace assembly not a 'tossed out' assembly.

Here is another assembly by the Late Great Eugene Burger. Do you think one spec could be the helper through the whole effect as if it were a one on one demo?

How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

This really is a wonderfully choreographed piece of magic! Perfect for dinner situations! Highly recommend!

Ok, apart from the usual recommendations, can anybody answer the question, can this be performed on a SIngle spec?

As Kevin said, it's perfect for just one person - We had a lot of groups and couples that evening, but there is also a performance (it's in the trailer) where he shows just one guy as his friend wasn't too keen about being on camera!

When working with groups; Chris gets everyone involved in the shuffling, but when it's just one person; they do the shuffling all by themselves. Doesn't affect the effect in any way at all! Smile

It requires a minimal set up; so with a little creativity and thought, I guess you could - but Chris teaches doing it with your own deck, not a borrowed one, so you're always ready to go as long as your cards are in your pocket! Smile

No. If you saw the complete performance you would easily see through it.

How long does it take to set up the deck?

Probably overnight.

You're finding four cards. How long do you think a "minimal set up" with four cards might take?

Well, it's in the end a very easy effect mostly based on a technique than many of us already know. So easy that I actually wonder why the video is sooooo looong. Seriously, 1 hour, which could have been reduce to 10 minutes. I never felt so bored by playing a video before.

TBH an uncut performance will have lead me to the trick, so I wouldn't have buy it.

My other concern is that I read a review which was saying that you can do this with a borrowed deck. No you can't, unless you somehow "alter" the deck of your friend, but according to my personal definition of "borrowed-deck-friendly-trick" this trick is not one of them.

My 2 cents

Totally agree ! I got extreme anxiety watching this tutorial. Could have been 10-15 minutes tops....but he HAD to do about 76 ribbon spreads for no apparent reason. OK... I LIKE the effect, so I'll not gripe too much about having too much explanation.

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