Twisting the aces DELUXE // Tutorial

Hey guys.

Today I want to show an effect of mine that combines two card plots, that I am very fond of: Twisting the aces and The collectors. The effect is quite simple and very direct. It is completely impromptu and only requires a tilt-move and a couple of normal elsmley counts. Hope you like it! If you have any questions, leave a comment to this post:)

THE EFFECT


THE EXPLANATION

So let’s move on to the tutorial. The entire effect is explained in the video, but I will go over the effect in the description as well (although much quicker).

Start with the four aces faceup on the top of the deck. Have three cards selected from the faceup deck. While they are being selected, cull two cards, and leave them beneath the top three aces. Outjog the last ace slightly so it is easy to get a break above it when you turn the deck around.

A VERY clean ace cutting routine

Just wanted to show you an ace cutting routine, that I am really happy with. I have been refining it over the last couple of years, and I think this has one of the nicest displays of the four aces cleanly going into four parts of the packet.

It uses one breather-crimp, but else is completely impromptu. Hope you enjoy it!:)

My favorite four ace routine

Every kickass magician should have his own favourite four ace routine! Here is one of my favourites. It’s a real worker, and I ofen use it to close my card set. Or at least almost as a closer: sometimes I have culled the four kings beforehand and I will close by saying something like: “Alright, but if you were to cheat at poker the four aces would be too obvious, so I normally use the… four kings”, and simultanously I switch the aces for the kings and show the transformation – that will leave them speakless most of the time!

Anyway, hope you enjoy it!
