Hey there,

I'm working on a move that can quickly flip over a selected card while it is in the middle of the deck. The move is hard to see (not invisible but maybe it will after some working on it) and after it the magician knows the selected card. I don't have much card sleight knowledge and I was wondering if such a move was already created by someone else.. so:

Is there a move that can quickly and almost invisibly flip a card in the middle of the deck... So I don't mean flipping the top/bottom card and then openly cut it.

if so, where can i learn it?

There is a sleight that takes, I believe the top card and places into the center facing upside down. You can find it in one of the Card College books. Vol2 or 3, not sure which.

I think you're talking about The Braue Reverse (I looked it up, found something in vol. 2 which seems what you're describing). This would indeed get the job done although it's far from quick or invisible (depending how one would decribe invisible).

This Braue Reverse needs a lot of hand movement and clearly shows that cards were face up, somewhere in the routine.

is there anything as fast and (in)visible as a classic pass that reverses a card?

I've actually reversed cards during a pass on accident. It has to do with one of the bottom card stacks being pulled out ever so slightly. It's possible you could refine this "accident" for your needs. Sadly when I've done it, the sound of it is quite telling.

that's exactly what i'm trying to refine.. so people have tried it.. k

the sound is a problem cause my hands want to hide the movement.. if i open my hands enough it can go 'soundless'... but then it becomes quite visible... working on it...

Ed Marlo, Future Reverse from Future Reverse (1945) pg. 3.

A reworking of a sleight first described in Greater Magic in 1938 under Side Slip Reverse. No credit is given as to the original author.

Cheers

Ken Krenzel's Invisible Reverse Transfer found in Card Classics of Ken Krenzel by Harry Lorayne is literally both invisible and direct. You can reverse the movements to move a middle card to the bottom, reversed. The move takes practice though.
