Temptation trick Gordon Bean
Out of stock.
Of the hundreds of people on whom Gordon Bean field-tested his new effect, Temptation, a particularly notable spectator was one Greg Simko, C.E.O. of the U.S. Playing Card Co. One evening, Mr. Simko was at The Magic Castle to discuss a custom deck being made for the film Shade, and when asked to perform an effect for him, Gordon brought out the Ace, Two and Three of Spades.The routine's first phase sent the Three visibly from Gordon's right hand to his left hand, and Mr. Simko smiled. He had seen a lot of amazing sleight-of-hand and assumed this was more of the same. Next, the Ace jumped the other way, and Mr. Simko leaned forward. Finally, the Two jumped down to his own hand and Mr. Simko knew the only possible explanation. "You're using some of those special cards we printed for you." Gordon smiled and motioned for him to pick up the cards. Mr. Simko examined them with an expert's precision. "But they are ordinary Bicycles," said Mr. Simko. "The finest cards made," agreed Gordon with a smile. I wouldn't use anything else."
"Temptation is the perfect walk-around version of Three-Card Monte. Since all the cards are examinable at the end, it is a practical as well as a mind-blowing effect." -Whit Haydn

Usually I like to reshape the presentations of tricks aside from whats included in the instructions. Although, with this it makes sense to describe this in the manner that is explained in the directions. When done so, you are left with an impressive monte-like display of magic with a phase that includes the spectator's hand and an entire effect that ends clean and examinable!
