Mark is a beast and I love when he shares his ideas. What you see in the trailer is EXACTLY what you get. It's one of those effects which is incredibly straight forward, can be done with a borrowed deck and with proper handling can be a huge fooler.

None of the sleights involved are difficult, if you can spread cards in your hands... you can do this.

Wonderful job Mark. For the price it's worth it just to see how Mark approaches card magic... While you're at it buy his other stuff too.

I wasn't sure about this initially but was pleasantly surprised. Mark has good thinking on performance timing. How and when to cleanup with lots of variations. A great improvement on a classic effect. Well worth the money.

I'm absolutely beginner in magic trick and this video is perfect for me. Few minutes of practice and i show it to my wife with very good reaction. Of course i must improve my presentation (and mark give a lot of advice about this) if i want show it in a better way.

I love this trick. definitely worth $9 my only complaint is that if you aren't careful enough with audience management and explaining what the spectators have to do there are a couple of pit falls you can run into with this effect. there is one specific situation that occurs often but an alternate method is provided so you can start over and make sure it works the second time. As I said in the tittle, when this goes off without a hitch (very often, only ever fails if the spectator becomes confused) it will completely blow their minds. when I spread the cards and one is facing the other way, they always say that better not be the card I named and when they pull it out and look their faces are worth the money you spent on this.
