idk i used to own that trick dont know what happened to it but for some reason the trick seems to good to be true even when i had the cards within the deck and did a few tricks and than take the cards from the deck and do the trick ppl seem to think that im still using trick cards how do i get around that?? what would be the perfect way to switch out the cards?? have the other cards ontop the deck then put the other ones on the bottom talk to the audiance and then count out the cards from the top to the audiance if they ask to see them??? any suggestions appreciated thanks.

Yes, that is one way especially if a routine has already been performed with the whole deck or another routine is performed after wards.

Three non-gimmicked cards could be kept separate such as in a coat pocket or Himber wallet. Proceed to put the gimmicked cards away and then bring out the non-gimmicked cards if you feel like letting them inspect.

Sometimes I might just wink or say that "they ARE for performing card tricks", put them away in a card wallet and let them be suspicious. If they don't know for sure or don't know exactly how they are "trick" cards the mystery will sit with them. I know the feeling when I have seen an effect that fooled me and was sure that a gimmick was used.

Stand Up Monte. I've performed it in 3 shows about 15 times in the last 2 weeks. I have it in my wallet all the time.

Another excellent way to switch out the cards is with Paul Wilson's, Jinx Switch. Caleb Wiles teaches a version of the Jinx Switch with his first effect from his free lecture at themagicsession.

My Strolling/close-up opener is Color Monte, but I use a regular pack of cards: Joker, Ace of Diamonds and Queen of Diamonds as surpise card.

If you're worried about them asking about the cards, then you're better off learning the one (yes, only one) sleight necessary to perform the Monte for real.

Check out the School for Scoundrels book or DVD.
