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 TheSecondDeal.com’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.

I used to call the not-yet-named-control, but I really think it derserves a slightly more… clever name. I use the ambitious card control for the first phase of my ambitious card routine, but it is great for any circumstance where you have to convince the audience that the card is buried deep within the deck.

Hope you enjoy it. If you people would like an explanation please write a comment for the video on Youtube:)


Have a nice day!
