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!


Card Sleights-practice: The diagonal Palm Shift

The Diagonal Palm Shift is a move that I almost never use in a regular performance, I still am not totally certain from which angles it can be detected. Yet it is still one of my favorite moves in all of card magic – mostly because of how well it flows when you have practiced it for awhile.

here is a little effect, that is just an excuse so showcase my Diagonal palm shift. Sorry for the flash in the end – I guess the camera is pretty damn hard to misdirect;)

I think this will fool you // A card control


This is a card control that I am pretty proud of. It has been published two places: in Magic Magazine in Joshua Jay’s excellent Talk about tricks column, and in the’s card collection book.

The control utilizes a technic that I consider to be one of the most versatile in all of card magic – maybe just behind a good old double lift.

A simple sandwich effect


This is an effect that I came up with 5-6 years ago. It was published in the Danish magic book, The Magicians Code by Mads Rasmussen. It is one of the cleanest and simplest sandwich routines I know, and it seriously stunnish laymen – and maybe some magicians.

Hope you like it!

The elimination process – a quicky


Hey guys,

Hope you enjoy the video! My very first for the blog – sorry for my English, it’s a bit rusty, so I hope it will get just a little better for every video!:)



Have a card selected and lost in the deck. Tell the spectator that you will locate it with the famous elimination process: you will eliminate one card at a time until you land on the spectators selected card. Turn the deck over and begin to go through the cards one at a time. When the spectator begins to fall asleep, quickly say: “Ok, this is may be a little too slow, so let’s eliminate ALL the cards that is not your card.” At the same time you outjog a card facedown and spread the rest of the deck faceup. Reveal that the facedown card is indeed the selected card.


So the method is quite simple as you have probably already guessed by now. Control a selected card to the top.
