"One of the tricks that really influenced how I present magic." -John Bannon



A spectator chooses a card from the deck. The deck is cut into four separate piles, with some piles face up. Each pile is shuffled into each other, face up and face down. The spectator hasn't put their card back in the deck, but the magician asks for the suit of their card. The spectator names the suit, the magician spreads the cards, and it is revealed that all the cards of that suit are in order, Ace through King, with one card missing (the selected card).

Pretty good Report this review

I like this version of the Triumph scenario, but I'm less enthusiastic about his suggested presentation. And that's fine: I'll just come up with my own, something with a catchier hook and a greater sense of magicality and drama. Point is: buy this for the mechanics, do what you will with it -- which is always the way it is anyway, for many of us. I gave it a 4 because it seems a bit high in price for what you're getting. A tag of 5.95 or 6.95 seems more reasonable to me.

Clever and easy...perfect Report this review

Instead of chasing every new sleight or trick that comes out I've finally decided to stick to certain criteria- cards (or rubber bands), full deck, can be done with a borrowed deck (so no, you can't be sure you can faro), and preferably simple, so I can enjoy the people and the presentation. That moves John Bannon into the top 3, and this trick meets those criteria...including being REALLY GOOD. Great instruction, well structured, and most importantly fun for you AND your audience. Very happy with this, you should check it out.

Really explained well and no slight of hand needed. Works well after a couple of time of practicing. Great effect.

Learning This Spoiled Me Report this review

I don't review many things, and it's especially weird to review a download I haven't purchased yet, but... this effect has appeared in a few of Bannon's books/reprints (previously titled "Play It Straight Triumph") and also his DVD Bullets After Dark. And yet I'm tempted to buy it again, just to see if there are any new touches presented here. It's one of the first few effects I ever learned, and the only one that I still constantly return to; I dare say it's easily the best Triumph routine of the dozen or so I've seen or learned.

It's so easy that I was doing it before I could even shuffle cards gracefully, and the presentation even loans itself to a bit of clumsiness with the right patter. ("I'm not very good with cards, and I learned there are a few ways to shuffle... here's one... here's another way...") But the revelation, which can be presented as an out-of-nowhere kicker after a joke or seeming mistake, has never failed to shock and delight.

The only negatives are a small setup (in an otherwise normal deck)... and the possibility that you will be too spoiled to appreciate any card tricks you learn after this one. (Well, to be fair: without a table, you might not get much out of the revelation, which will by far look best spread wide in front of you.) You might consider it a negative that the effect is available in other collections that are well worth owning; but if you are going to study Bannon (and you should, if you like cards), this is a great place to start.

This is a masterpiece! There is a small setup, but if you're creative you can "ring in" an instant setup, which is what I do. No sleight of hand required, and if you can riffle shuffle you can perform this immediately. The impact of this illusion far outweighs the effort required to perform it! This should be in everyone's repertoire.

Fun effect Report this review

I'm looking forward to performing this for the next family gathering, after some practice.There are a couple of places that I have to work on getting more natural. Glad I purchased this.

This is a wonderful routine, easy to perform and easy to prepare. I precede this effect with one of a number of 'sorting' routines to set it up.

He stresses the problem of finding the card as it is not returned to the deck, I find stressing the magic of the means of discovering the card more sensical.

Plenty of flexibility with this method, and when coupled with choice similar impossible reveals it is a routine you will want to have in your arsenal as it can be performed with a borrowed deck.
