Here's the situation: I have two cards in my left hand one on top of the other - both are face UP. I need to reverse the bottom card so that it is back to back with the top card.

Basically what I'm asking is: Is there such a thing as a deceptive half pass with two cards?

TIA,
Uriel Nashofer

In Jeff Stone's video 'Stone Cold Magic', he does this one move he didn't give a name to. Four aces are face up in his left hand, but he reversed the top two instead of the bottom two. It's a single-handed move and of course it can easier be applied to turning over a single card in a two card stack. It needs a little misdirection but it's very easy to do.

If the other hands empty, you can Gambler's Cop the bottom card as you lift the top card with the other hand, go south with that hand and then flip the card over. Then you just need to add the top card back.

Cant you just reverse it with the hand that its in, with a few moves of a finger or two? Works for me.
Or do as X said, that should work pretty well too.

Just do it, Ayli. There isn't a reason to look for a complicated move that you could do with misdirection.

What about a good ol' fashioned Christ twist? A half-pass with a twist. :)

How about the David Regal One-Handed Half Pass from his book Approaching Magic?

I can see it now... the love triangle between Jay Sankey, Michael Kras, and PopChris.
