Beautiful trick and teaching Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 15th, 2016
This is going to be my new go-to trick when someone asks me to perform for them. It was a beautiful line between appearing magical, and impossibly skillful. It does require a some sleights, but nothing too knuckle busting. If you have zero experience with the required moves, you can probably become proficient in them with 30 minutes of work a day for two weeks. Gordon does an excellent job of slowly and clearly explaining each sleight required. On top of everything else, it feels magical when you can consistently cut to the aces. It's one of those rare tricks that is as fun to perform as it is to watch.

Wow - Fantastic Work Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 14th, 2016
Would I like to do this without any effort? Yes. Is this worth the effort to learn? YES! Paul Gordon has produced one of the best teaching videos there is in the field. Card work is sometimes tough to illustrate and explain - even on video. This is one of those tough situations which is overcome by just how good a TEACHER this magician is. If you have decent hands you'll be doing this trick in a couple of days. Everything you are taught has applications in many other tricks you're already doing. A great false cut and superior shuffle info is taught here. The effect is mind numbing and surefire. I like this magician and respect his work and I'll buy anything he produces in the future just based on the depth and quality of the instruction. High def footage helps here too and he did it right. Thank you for excellence Paul.

Great Impromptu Ace Cutting Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 14th, 2016
This is all fairly familiar if you have an extensive library, but these ideas are put together in a tight and simple utterly impromptu routine. You can tell by watching the demo whether you have the skills to do it, since Paul is basically doing exactly what he says he's doing (with a little blurring of the term "exactly"). If you can do even a partial faro, you can do this, totally impromptu, and it's pretty impressive.

If you can attempt to make it through the day without squandering a 10 dollar bill, use it to by the download, take 15 minutes to watch it, and you've got yourself a killer ace cutting routine with no funny business. The spectators have just seen you truly cut the aces from a shuffled and squared deck with no marks or crimps.

STUNNING and Great Teacher! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 15th, 2016
Paul Gordon always surprises me. Not only is his magic kick ass strong (as is this Pro Aces), his teaching is excellent. I loved the Penguin Live lecture he did and this is icing on the already-beautiful cake. IT'S A WORKER!

Love it.Impressive routine! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 14th, 2017
I like 4 ace routines.Pro aces is one of my favorite routines.I really like it.It's not a difficult routine but it's not so easy.This routine requires sleight of hand and high quality presentation.If you are self confident, you can buy this trick.I recommend it.
Teaching is great.I do not even have to say this.Paul Gordon is great magician.He's very experienced.
There is not much to say.I liked it very much.If you are a MAGICIAN (not according to the amateurs) who likes ace routines, I would recommend.
Thank you Paul Gordon...

My First Review - Great Routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2016
I'm quite lazy about contributing here at Penguin. But after seeing some poor reviews here I had to come out and say this is a fantastic routine.

I am in no way a card pro, and I have difficulty with knuckle busting slights. This routine is simple and refreshing. Look at the promo video, what you see is exactly what you get. There is no questionable video editing that may leave out some flaw like some recent purchases I have regretted. No arts and crafts project here. Grab a deck and go.

Paul's handling makes it easy to be successful with minimal practice. No, its not self working, but its not far off. I did watch the video the whole way through without touching cards and I was like... this will never work. Then the second time through I tried along and it started to sink in and I was cutting to aces and really surprising myself in the process.

Anyone having an issue with this routine, post in the private forums with your exact issues and I'm sure we can all help out. I can't see why anyone would have an issue performing this. Well done Paul!

Great routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2016
I have been wanting to produce the Aces magically before I do Twisting the Aces. Although I do not do all of the moves in this routine, with this routine all you have to do is execute them at the most basic level, and you have an effect that is well thought out and baffling to the layman. I am confident that once I take the rust off, I will be able to do this smoothly and effectively. The last production is new to me, but I felt Paul gave a good explanation of it and the entire routine, although I feel that novices to the respective sleights will need more basic instruction. Very happy with my purchase, and plan to start producing the aces.

A Perfect Medium-Skills Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 16th, 2016
Pro Aces fills that spot between easy and knuckle-busting. The slights aren't not hard but they do take some practice. The overall effect is well worth it - it's the kind of trick that audiences immediately understand, even those that don't like to be fooled.

Gordon's teaching is very clear and engaging, even when demonstrating a move that isn't the easiest to explain. This definitely makes me want to explore more of his work.

Since downloading, I've been going over this trick repeatedly because it's also really fun to do. What more could you ask for?

difficult Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 20th, 2016
the Promo made it sound like a relatively easy trick---its is far from that. You must me experienced card guy or willing to invest lots of time learning the key move.

There must be an easier way to do this

I'm so lost Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 19th, 2016
I have been doing card tricks since I was 9 and I know a lot of basic moves. I am no where near pro level as I am only a hobiest at best however I watched the whole video and I still don't get it. The move he uses is not clearly explained and I am not even sure what is supposed to be happening. Maybe I was watching a different video or the rest of you already have a basic understanding of a shufel I don't know anything about, but I was so lost. Don't buy this unless you are a card pro who already knows a lot of moves because you probably won't get what he is talking about either. What a waste of money for me.
