Zarrow Shuffle Tutorial

The Zarrow Shuffle is arguably one of the greatest false shuffles ever devised. It cleverly simulates an ordinary tabled riffle shuffle while maintaining the complete order of the deck. This is an advanced technique and will take a good deal of practice to learn well, but it has a lot of applications and can be used in many card tricks.

How to Deal Cards like a Professional Dealer

Have you ever seen the way that professional dealers deal cards to players across the table from them? This is a dealing technique known as "sailing cards" and allows you to deal cards long distances and with accuracy.

It's a useful card skill to learn if you enjoy playing card games and also if you're interested in learning false dealing techniques. If you want to be able to do second deals or bottoms deals, then often times you will do these deals while sailing the cards to someone sitting across the table from you in the context of a magic trick or gambling routine.

Clip Steal Color Change

An awesome color change that was originally published in the 1920's, but seems to have been largely forgotten since... Our instructor Vinh Giang also covers a variation of this change that allows you to wrap your fingers completely around the deck and still make the card change, which it makes it look all the more impossible!

A Brilliant Prediction Effect with Coins

In this video Vinh Giang performs and teaches a brilliant prediction effect that ALWAYS WORKS. This routine has a lot of built in audience interaction and a killer ending. Best of all, it uses a handful of coins which are an extremely relatable object and can easily be carried with you always.

The Snap Double Lift

 

This is a great extension that can be added to your current double lift to make it more convincing and to demonstrate singularity in the cards. The Double Lift is one of the most important moves in card magic so it's well worth the time to practice it till you master it!

Card to Pocket Tutorial

Card to Pocket is a classic trick in card magic and an excellent application for card palming. You will have to be comfortable with getting a card in palm position and holding it there in order to do this routine, but it's well worth the practice. This routine is so good because it's so flexible and you can modify it however you like depending on the environment and audience.

Modified Pop Over Production Tutorial

This modification on the Pop Over Production is a quick snappy way to produce a card from the pack. It's visually startling and can create a nice audible sound too! It's a perfect edition to your ace production routine, or it can be used to simply find a spectator's card in an impressive fashion.

Productions of this kind got their start from the top of the deck. J.B. Bobo published his “Pop-Over Card” in The Sphinx, Vol. 45 No. 12, Feb. 1947, p. 368. Bruce Elliot later brought the production to the bottom of the deck with his “Fillip” in Phoenix, No. 188, Oct. 1949, p. 751.
The best-known production in this family is by J. K. Hartman, first described in his Packet Magic, 1972, p. 2. As Hartman notes there, his starting point was Neal Elias's “Another Cutting Discovery” in Ibidem, No. 26, Sep. 1962, p. 9. The difference between the two is that the Elias sleight is done as the halves of the deck are put together, while Hartman's handling occurs with the full deck held in the left hand.

Secret peeking technique [Tutorial]

This technique allows the magician to know what card the spectator is thinking of. This peek is quick, practical, and incredibly useful. You can have someone freely choose a card, and then immediately shuffle if they desire. You have already secretly seen their card at this point so it's easy to recover control over it and carry on with whatever trick you want.
