"The trick is great and the theory is the stuff of miracles." -R. Paul Wilson

“I’ve always wanted to know how Dani DaOrtiz’ mind works; how he gets stunning impact from the simplest of card tricks, and how he dances on the line between chaos and confusion. This not just a great trick, but also a lesson in Dani’s methods.”

Even though the spectator does almost all of the work, you Know It All.

Dani DaOrtiz's most beginner-friendly release ever. No difficult moves, no complex stacks or memory. Just a super clever method that will stick with you as soon as you learn it.

Here's what happens:

Spectator cuts a packet off the top of the deck. From that packet the performer instructs the spectator to place all of his cards against his chest.

A second spectator cuts a packet from the remaining cards and places those cards under the card box.

A final packet is cut off the remaining cards and now everyone places their cut cards against their chest.

Everyone peeks at their cards making sure to not let the magician see and miraculously you are able to reveal all three cards with 100% accuracy.

This is the ultimate tossed out deck that uses a full deck of 52 cards and absolutely no gimmicks.

Dani shares a couple more gems on this download. His wonderful "Working The How" principle and an amazing bonus routine called Three Predictions.

Another heavy hitter from DaOrtiz Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2019
Ok, so before I say anything about the download, I just need to point out that when Nick says this trick doesn't require any special moves or memorization, hes not being 100% honest. That being said, you really don't have much to remember,and the "special move" is a very simple thing that anyone can do, but they just shouldn't have said that.


On to the download:
Both of these are killer routines.
The first(or main trick) is so beautifully constructed. I am definitely going to be using this one.

The beauty of this trick is that you can reconstruct it to fit your own taste if you desire.
Whether you're a beginner or have been doing magic your entire life, you'll be able to rock this one like you created it yourself.

I would say the bonus "3 prediction" trick is for the more experienced card magician.
My poor finger dexterity won't allow me to do the necessary work for the bonus trick, but if you have a grasp(no pun intended) on the basic card sleights that are taught on most card magic DVDs out there, you shouldn't have any problems with the bonus "3 prediction" trick.


For those who aren't familiar with DaOrtiz should be forewarned. His accent is VERY thick. I grew up surrounded by thick Hispanic accents, and his is very similar to what I am familiar with, so I have no problems understanding him. But I wouldn't be surprised if some folks have a harder time keeping up when he gets on a roll and starts speaking faster.



As a whole, I really gotta give it up to Dani on this one.

This just may end up on my "top 5 of 2019" list. Its THAT good.




As far as the edit in the trailer goes, they are NOT being deceptive. They're only protecting their product. Besides, we aren't just buying a method here. We are buying a routine, and the ability to be taught said routine by a master magician.
If you ask me, the price isn't high enough for what we are getting.

TWO Awesome Tricks to Melt Their Minds Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2019
These two card effects will fool your spectators badly!

The first effect has three selections that you instantly know.

The second effect finds the match to a three of a kind from any number named by the spectator. The card is REALLY at the number they name!

Things to know:

Both effects require a multiple card setup.
The second effect requires extra cards, meaning you can't use a borrowed deck.

Despite these limitations BOTH of these effects still rate a full FIVE STARS!

Either of these effects alone should get priced way higher. You get both for a song.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Demo and description misleading Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2019
I love Dani and have a lot of his videos, but I would not have bought this one if the demo showed the whole routine. The 1st spectator does not just cut the cards and put against his chest, as the demo and description lead you to believe. Once the first spectator cuts he is instructed to deal as many cards as he likes, and then put the rest on top. It’s misleading that this was left out because most magicians would know this method. In the bonus trick there is one point where the camera cuts away, and focuses on the spectators face. This is the moment when the dirty work happens. Again I think it was intentionally cut this way to hide the fact there was a “move”. There are a couple ideas of value in the video which is why I still gave it 3 stars. But puts a bad taste in my mouth the way penguin promoted it.

Whoa boy! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2019
Eight minutes into the explanation of this effect I started laughing out loud. This is SO clever! If you like the demo you should be very pleased with the method. One reviewer commented that he thought the demo was misleading because it didn't accurately show how the first spectator's choice is determined -- I couldn't disagree more. What was omitted actually disguises the method very well and, I believe, significantly enhances the effect. The only possible negative is that you can't just pick up any deck and perform this as there is a bit of a set up involved, but most card guys can do the prep while casually toying with the deck in advance. Anyway, in my book this is definitely worthy of 5 stars!

Dani DaOrtiz! Enough said! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2019
When it comes to entertainment with a deck of cardsDani really is a know it all!

This trick is EASY to do. Like any good trick, it could fall flat without the right presentation. Just watching Dani perform is a master class in presentation. He’s one-of-a-kind. And he could literally take the simplest trick your grandpa did and entertain a room for 10 minutes.

I don’t see how this could be done with a borrowed deck, since there’s a set up. The cards certainly aren’t gimmicked, though.

The secret is genius. I never would have thought of it. But on top of that, Dani let’s us glimpse into his way of thinking. And on top of that, it’s Dani DaOrtiz!

I knew KNOW IT ALL was going to be a killer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2019
Just finished watching this and it is going straight into my grymoire. Google that word!!

This is a super simple 3 card prediction where the spectators do everything.
Dani has (as usual) thought of everything and gives you an extra bonus trick at the end

There isn't any complictated set ups and you don't have to use a stacked deck!!

GET THIS.. STUDY THIS...PRACTICE THIS...
You will have a killer weapon in your arsenal

Simply impossible or is it? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2019
This is one of the most deceptive and effective ’tossed out deck’ tricks that I have ever seen. This is a perfect close-up or strolling version of any stage version you already know. No peeks, no gimmicks, no memorization is needed however there is a little set up required before you perform the trick. You will learn three different clever ways to make this trick work perfectly even though your spectators are doing all the work. You may already know one or two of the ‘moves’ not ‘sleights’ but Dani has put together an awesome routine in a way you would not think of to determine the 3 cards chosen by your spectators. I need to say that even though the demo says that you can use a borrowed deck, you can BUT you would have to accomplish some serious set up prior to doing the trick - not advisable. The tutorial is very well done but I have to admit that as Dani does speak a bit fast and obviously has an accent, it took me a little while to catch on to certain things he was saying but it all eventually worked itself out.

As a bonus, you will also learn Dani’s Three Prediction routine, shades of Any Card At Any Number. This is a very powerful trick, all you will need to do is add a little something that you will already have around and don’t worry, there is nothing to make, no arts and crafts required. You will have a little work to do to perfect this one but well worth time time and effort. Dani will teach you two different ways of doing it, pick the one that suits your skill level and liking. You are essentially getting two fantastic tricks for the price of one … such a deal, don’t pass it up.

A master class from a card master Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2019
This download is two completely different tricks.

"Know It All" is good for beginners and doesn't require any slights or tricky moves. I don't think it's a magician fooler, but it is otherwise a strong trick. I like the way you can involve 3 spectators.
This is not really an impromptu trick. While it can be done with a borrowed deck, it cannot be done immediately with a shuffled deck. ('nuff said)

I found the bonus "3 Card Prediction" to be a stronger trick, and I suspect this one IS a magician fooler.
It's not very hard to do, but it will take some practice.
This can NOT be done with a borrowed deck. However the amount of setup is minimal, requiring only a few seconds.
This would probably be an opener. It doesn't require any gimmicks or arts-and-crafts or anything other than regular cards.
For any of us non-beginners, I would consider THIS the trick you are buying, and Know It All the bonus trick.

Great effects with one big caveat Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2019
I think the "bonus" trick is even better than "Know It All." Both are killer routines, and for $10 you are getting good value for money. I like that the routines, especially "Know it All," are for bigger groups; with three cards selected, you need at least three spectator, so it's bigger than most "pick a card" routines. I have one huge caveat, however, explained below.

First though, let me say these are NOT impromptu effects. Your reset won't take more than a minute, but you'll want to do it outside your spectator's line of vision. (Although, like many effects, you probably won't be doing this a second time for the same audience.) Sleights? Not really, more like a fair amount of misdirection going on. The second effect could be a bit more sleight-y if you choose for it to be. (More than one handling is taught.) If you know some false shuffles, that's great to toss in, but none are taught here, or even suggested. Or, at least, I don't think they are suggested...

Which leads to my only real complaint, but it's a big one: I have so much trouble understanding Mr. DaOrtiz that the explanations are almost lost on me. Especially for the second effect. Watching the performance, I was seriously asking, "How did he do that?" After watching the explanation, I only have a hint as to how it's done. Yes, I certainly a clue, but the speed + heavy accent trips me up. Let me try to be specific.

It's easy enough when Mr. DaOrtiz makes the word "brain" sound like "Brian." That's easy to sort out, right? But with the speed of his talking, things become confused. For instance, at one point in the second effect's explanation, he says something like "...and you put these cards over here..." (I'm being vague on purpose). I wasn't sure if he was giving me instruction as to the method, or if he was telling me that this is what I am supposed to say to the spectator.

Two more examples, and I'll try to be discreet: There's a point where you need to know whether a part of the routine "starts" (let's say) from the top or the bottom. It's crucial, but how do I know whether to start from the top or the bottom? I completely missed it. Second, and again trying not to give too much away: part of the routine has something to do with knowing some numbers. It's not memorization. Just math — I think. Again, the way in which I am supposed to use the numbers was totally lost on me. I completely missed it in the explanation.

So, I will need to watch the video again to be sure what he's saying — and hey, that's not always a bad thing. You will have to decide for yourself if you think you can follow the rhythm of his English. The video is about 25 minutes, by the way, with just about equal time dedicated to both effects.

I think these are great routines, but some closed captioning at the bottom, or perhaps a written PDF summarizing the method would have been helpful here.

You can't go wrong with Dani DaOrtiz Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2019
I've seen Dani DaOrtiz lecture several time and love his work, but in a live lecture so much is going on it's hard to walk away with the knowledge to do what he just taught. Here is a chance to see 2 effects taught as often as you need to get it down.

Yes, I said 2. The trailer shows one effect but a second, quasi ACAAN, is also taught. Either effect is wth the price, so 2 for 1 is a great deal.

Dani is a little difficult to understand, but on repeated viewings it is all clear. Just keep at t. You will be rewarded with2 more unbelievable effects in your arsenal.

Just please don't try to be Dani when you perform these. Only he can pull off his persona, but you can fit this into your character.
