Here’s a trick popular with Chris Angel that I’m including if only for the fact that this guy’s YouTube username is Hester23BearsCH – a reference to the greatest kick returner of all time (GOAT) – The Chicago Bears‘ Devin Hester!
Method: The solution is shown in the video above as well as hints on how to construct a simple gimmick which can be used not only in this trick but as a very useful and portable prop to add to your favorite magic accessories.
Card magic is great fun and rarely fails to impress a crowd. Like any worthwhile profession, to perform tricks smoothly, does take a lot of practice and dedication. The results of your labours are returned many fold, by the enhanced results and believability of your tricks to your audience.
Remember some basic tips when practicing card tricks such as practicing in slow motion so that you can follow all the parts of the trick more easily. This can also help to improve your timing when performing the trick at normal speed.
Also if the trick requires a few different moves to complete, try practicing the different parts of the trick, seperately. By practicing in stages, each small part of the routine should be easier to perfect. The seperate workings can then be linked up to show a smooth slick and impressive performance to delight your audience
