Maybe people are observant of your cards because you are looking at them. Try looking at your spectators when doing the overhand shuffle. You might be surprised.

please excuse the ignorance, but as i said earlier, i'm quite new at this. what exactly is a pass? i'm pretty sure it's essential, since it has been more than adequatly represented in this thread. as much info as possible (considering the restrictions) would be greatly appreciated. maybe a few books/videos that they have here at penguin would be nice. thanks

Say I spread the cards face-up and you pick one in the middle of the deck. All I then do is square the cards face-up and turn the deck over to face-down as I set it on the table. It looks like nothing has happend, yet the card you selected , which was clearly in the middle of the deck, is now on the top.

A pass nulifies a cut.
A pass is a control.
A pass can be used as a color change.

The classic pass is pretty hard to master, and maybe not for someone new to magic.

The pass is an advanced sleight, but when mastered can be invisible.

A pass can be used to control a card from the center(or any position) of the deck to the top, without it looking like anything has happend.

In a literal sense, the classic definition of a pass is that it nulifies a cut to the deck, meaning the original top half is brought back to top of the deck after a cut has been made.

A pass in the right hands can be used as an impossible color-change....

It might be kinda hard to picture all of this, but the pass is very versatile sleight and also very, very complex.


The pass might not be for everyone, and you can perform magic without using passes. Ammar and Daryl do not use or advocate the pass for the most part if that means anything. They are both very successful magi.

Hehe, no worries at all. The pass is kinda hard to see in your mind, so ask a fellow magician or go to a magic shop and ask to see a pass in action. I didn't understand the pass until I saw it either.

Let me put it this way, If you have seen some of the downloads, you have seen (but did not notice) Oz do some turnover passes!!!! The reason you didn't notice is because Oz is really good, and it's the nature of the sleight (not to be seen).
