I was preforming today, and when I finished my little routine, a spectator asked

"is it a trick deck?"

It wasn't, so I said no. He said

"Oh. I can't believe you could do that with any deck! Cool!"

I was just thinking that I'm getting better at choosing my audiences.

Actually, now, whenever ANYONE asks that, I just say no.

And everytime they accept it and are even more amazed. So Far, Most of them haven't asked to examine the deck.

Also, If I've noticed they're sort of sceptic people, If they ask, I'll say no, but keep the deck moving and flourish, shuffle, and cut.



It is perfect.

No lines. NOTHING.

Try it out.

Yea well thats good, but don't think that will work everytime, you know, yea it might work a few times, but you are going to come across somebody that will want to examine the deck, but most people can have the deck examined because it is normal, but im just saying that what you said will not happen all the time.

Sayin no works especially well if you act like you're on the same level as the audience. Often some of the toughest spectators are really interested in magic, and want to prove it to you the only way they no how. So if you allow them to ask you the question, and apparently answer honestly (effectively treating them as if they're "in the know") then they'll be quite content with your answer, and feel good.
