The perfect open prediction seems to be the new ACAAN. Everyone has a version. This one works, but
it has limitations. It is not angle proof, and can only really be performed close up. It requires
excellent audience management or you risk the participant coming in contact with and noticing part
of the gimmick. The reveal feel a bit awkward and contrived. You can work with this, but there are
similar effects on the market that are more versatile and are just as commercial.

Its exactly what you see at trailer. Easy and great trick. But for me, you just dont end up clean
enough. Few things what you have to do on this perfomance are just not solid. But still i recommend

I am having the greatest time performing this effect. It is so very simple to do and it gets the
greatest reactions. I can't praise this enough. It is now one of my favorite effects. Essentially
self working and all you have to do is present and take the cheers. Mr. Wild I want to say again how
much I appreciate your teaching and performing on the video. I love it!

This effect looks very clean and is very easy to perform. Also on the DVD is a "sleigthy" version
that utilize only one of the gimmicks wich will make the card examinable at the end wich is allways
Also, it is very important to point out that this trick is best suited in a
controlled enviroment such as a performance where you are able to ring the cooler at some point
because unless you are good at sleigth of hand and able to sneak the gimmicks this trick will
require a separate deck.
Gets good reactions and can also be presented as a "target card"
effect where the spectator use his/her intutition to find a preselected card wich can be forced from
a regular deck of cards wich will take alot of heat of the POP deck.
Good trick but not
something i would carry on me and bust out when asked to "show me a trick". Like i said earlier,
best used for stage or parlour.
4 out of 5 here`s why:
I like BW`s ideas but i am
allways hesitant to add too many tricks that requires a special deck to my arsenal. Not because the
effects/tricks are not worth while, but rather that they take up too much space in my pockets ;)
Spending hours upon hours in isolation compulsively practicing sleigth of hand and other
priciples that can be done with a regular deck will eventually play stronger than any EASY TO DO
Hope my ranting/review will prove itself helpful in some way

I literally did this successfully on the first pass through, just following the steps as the DVD
played on the TV in front of me. That's how easy it is (once the gimmick is prepared, which is also
This gets my coveted 5-star "The Video Actually Represents The Trick
Accurately, For Once" rating. Notice how the promotional video shows the trick done in one long,
unbroken shot, exactly as the spectator would see it, instead of some music video co-directed by
Michael Bay and Darren Aronofsky with quick cuts every 5 seconds? That's a good sign that the trick
creator has confidence in the product. It's every bit as amazing as it looks in the video, and
every bit as easy as they say it is.

Just received mine. Watched the DVD and set it up. I am ready to go. It is VERY clean. I can see
doing this very often. Thank you Mr. Wild for sharing this wonderful effect with us.

Let me start off by saying this: This is the only open prediction I've learned, and it might be the
last. This trick is absolutely clean with no sleight of hand. You do have to cover something small
at the beginning, but as long as you can handle a deck it's simple. The only thing I don't like
about this trick is that it's not angle-proof. But once again, that's just at the beginning. One of
the best things about it is that the gimmicks are not required when you order the trick. I was
worried because I broke my gimmick the first time I practiced, but I remade it with some household
items. I recommend this trick to anyone.
It is crazy how EZ this is.... just watch the DVD. Although, you can perform without it...I made one
modification at the end, by carrying "real-switchouts"
This effect it not hard to master and on this DVD he also teaches an almost gimmick free version
that is also not difficult to do. You can end 95% clean with the second version Boris teaches on
this DVD with virtually no sleight of hand, just careful card handing. Very good effect. Fair price.
You really cannot go wrong with this one. This review is here for a reason. Trust it. Achilles
