I saw Robert do this at a recent lecture. While I agree with the previous review that this a
variation on an existing plot (which I won't comment on), I like this routine much better. I have
been doing Triumph for years in my walk around, and while it's great to perform and have selected
cards end up face up in a deck of all face down cards, I really like that in this the selection ends
face down. It makes for a great prediction ending (and no, I'm not going to debate whether Triumph
should be performed on its own or can be a combined effect. Lol). So if you want an easy to do,
self-working Triumph this is great. It's very easy to hide the turnover move (which you have to do
in almost all Triumph effects anyway).

Excellent trick. Easy to perform. No sleights or skill required, just a few basic steps to follow.
Great for the novice as well as the professional. Shuffling the face down into face up cards, then
effortlessly revealing all cards magically face up, except for the spectator’s card as the only one
face down, provides a spectacular and surprising visual affect.

I bought this effect after seeing Robert perform it live. Without giving too much away, I was
certain--given Robert's tremendous skill--that I was seeing a routine with a sneaky sleight or two,
and when I learned the truth, I just had to laugh. This effect is particularly good for two types
1) Beginners who haven't yet mastered a Triumph shuffle who want to
incorporate the effect into their routine
2) Intermediate/Advanced card magicians who want
to perform Triumph in a seemingly more-impossible way than traditional methods. This makes for a
great second demonstration of the effect.
Either way, you're getting a fresh take on a card
magic staple that will impress your audiences.

"Seriously! It fooled me very bad! How did you do that?!" --- John Carey
That was what
John Carey say to me when I perform " Live and Let Dai" to John Carey's lecturer in Perth Australia.
I think this should be the best routine in 2019! Highly recommended!

Instructions hard to follow from the book for an amateur. Should have included a DVD.
I am totally an amateur. I try to bring a different magic trick with me to perform every time I go
to MD Anderson. The magic helps them to remember me, and hopefully to give me their full attention.
This was one of the better tricks. I like that there is a bit of manipulation and it took a bit of
practice before I was ready to pull it off. No sleight of hand, which I am terrible at. Just
Though I've done Daryl's version of Triumph since the 80s, and Larry Jenning's in the hands version
since the 90s, this is the first gaffed version I really like! It's so easy and killer too!
For a parlor show or sit down set this is a great option.
I can’t tip method but I can say that if you’ve been doing magic for a significant amount of time
then you should be able to tell this is a direct rip off. This is nothing new in any way. Just flip
it. That’s it. Watch the demo. He doesn’t hide the one move that MUST be hidden in a triumph type
effect. Oh look I turned the deck over. Oh look the same face up card is still there face up. Gee I
wonder what happened? Please people. If this fooled you I have some bad news for you. Stick to the
five dollar downloads.
