Posted: Sep 8, pm. I've been meaning to get the book for like two years now, and finally got around to ordering it. I just thought it be nice to get some opinions on your favorite tricks in the book and why. I've particularly interested in the gambling chapter. Posted: Sep 9, am. Hi Juggernaut, There are a couple of excellent Gilbreath items in there and I love his 18 card poker deal routine.
Am still studying from the book but it is very good indeed. Have you tried 'Up The Ante' yet?? The ultimate gambling demo See the reviews here on the cafe. I would say 'most of all'. Because they are created by Nick Trost! Hideo Kato. And the 3rd one is practice again - 'Magic of the Hands', Edward Victor I just finished reading through it again and here are the ones that jumped out at me this time I don't have the book with me so the effect names may not be right : Red or Black, Which?
Weight Guess - I do this effect with an impromptu handling which requires a faro shuffle to do as a prelude to some other feats of card prowess. As written, it's a little too much setup for the payoff, but if you can faro it's a nice little piece. Double Turnover Coincidence - A nice single deck variant of 'Do As I Do' where the performer makes a prediction and performer and spectator each select the predicted mates which turn up face up in each other's packets.
Spectator's Choice - Great effect here. I do a 'handling' variation where the spectator has the cards from the initial shuffle to the very end when they turn over the prediction card. This consistently amazes everyone. Don't use it much anymore but it's good Double Discovery - a nice spectator finds the Kings routine with Ace kickers. End of story. This can easily be used as a parlor piece.
Quite powerful. Double Shock - A simplified handling of a Bannon effect. This is another one that is worth the price of the book. Blows people away. Telespo - An outstanding ESP deck effect where you can really focus on presentation.
Besides these listed there are over other effects. The great thing about a book like this is that you will always be able to find something that suits you. Good luck and have fun!

Prepare to be very pleasantly surprised. The Card Magic of Nick Trost dispenses with most slight of hand and replaces it with clever principles and devious subtleties. Even for dyed-in-the-wool sleight of hand guys, this is a book that seriously deserves your consideration. Those spectators that stare at your hands as though they are in a trance can only provide that level of focus for so long. A beautiful effect.
