The bend comes out. I use the Popup Move to setup my Card to Mouth ending. I also am a big fan of the Card to Wallet. Bill Malone ends with Card to Pocket and then vanishing the entire deck to his pocket. My feeling is the end of an ACR has to highlight that it's THE end. The ACR is something that can go on forever. Look at Sankey's Extremely Ambitious or Daryl's video on the ACR for a lot of ideas.

yeh, i usually go with the card to wallet. Great ending, because you can use the patter of "for helping me out i have a little souveneer for you, i keep it here in my wallet..." BAM!

:D

I proceed with a new trick altogether (3 card monte using Color Monte structure) in a sense that the spectator thinks his card is no longer in use. At the end, I reveal his signed card.

I know people here don't really like it but I do and I use it all the time to finish my ACR it is Fallen by Daniel Garcia I know I'm probably going to get flamed for saying that but I like it and the people I've shown this to do anything from run away from me/scream hysterically/or my personal favorite faint I know it looks dumb to us because it's so easy but laypeople I've performed this for go nuts for it even my mom who isn't fond of the ACR (except for the part where I lose it and then invisibly catch the card) and she loved Fallen.

It's not that people are going to hate you for using Fallen - it'as just a really stupid trick. I'm surprised anyone over the age of 4 is fooled by it.

Whatever works for you.

I use the pop-up move as my second to last phase, ending with a card to pocket most times. However, being able to adjust to time or audience constraints will help you to get better reactions.

I know what you mean I felt the same way about it when I first learned the secret but when I did out on the street for a group of random people they all freaked out.

The first time I watched it, I didn't realize he was even doing an effect. I thought, "Man this is a really boring demo, and if he keeps rubbing like that he'll spill the cards everywhere." - Demo Ends - "What happened? Did I miss it?"

The second time - "Oh . . . that WAS the trick . . . back to hocus-pocus for me."

I don't have a Card-to-Wallet wallet so I take the card out of my zipper
Or just do the pop-up move... it's worth the bend

No no no no - I won't have you paratrooping about Israel without a Card to Wallet. I've got a spare around here some place - just tell me where to mail it.
