A few years ago the team at Penguin challenged Erik Tait to create a gambling routine that any magician could do. A few weeks later he was transforming aces into royal flushes and teaching the audiences at the Penguin Max conventions to do the same. This gambling-themed routine took audiences across the country from zero to card sharp in just a couple of minutes, and now you can do the same. This is The Cincinnati Kid by Erik Tait.

Here’s what happens:

The magician tells their audience that in order to keep themselves sharp they like to practice cutting the aces out of a shuffled deck. The magician gives the deck a quick mix, and then immediately turns over an ace. That ace is placed on the table, and the deck is shuffled again. The magician impossibly finds another ace which is also placed on the table. The deck is shuffled a third time and the audience is invited to cut the deck, and somehow they are able to cut to the ace! The fourth ace is found after some flashy cuts and it joins the other three aces on the table. The magician points out that if he were a gambler he wouldn’t be satisfied with just finding the aces. The four aces are then picked up and what was once four cards are suddenly five, as the aces transform into the Royal Flush.

This powerhouse trick uses simple sleights with a gambling presentation that instantly hooks any audience. There is no palming, or complicated sleight of hand. The moves and the routine are perfect for all skill levels. As a bonus, you’ll also learn Doc Daley’s Last Blackjack Lesson, a stand-alone routine where random cards transform into a Blackjack, and then change color. This routine features the same simple sleights and a couple of new ones that you’ll love to fool people with. This routine was once only available to the audiences who attended the Penguin Maxx events and is now available to the general public for the first time. Your audiences will think you’ve been a master card cheat after you perform The Cincinnati Kid by Erik Tait.

Great effect, though not an easy trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2021
I really like this trick. It's a quick gambling routine which flows with a great rhythm.

Having said that, while it's true that it has card moves that anyone can do, it does have a lot of card moves. The combination of the raw number of moves, the pace at which you have to move, and the rhythm of the routine this an Intermediate skill-level.

The difficulty is not beyond me, and it is one that I will add to my repertoire. I really like tricks like this. But, in my view, it will require some practice to get it to a presentable level.

I like this download a lot. Not just for the routine itself (which is excellent), but also for the tips on the double lift and some subtleties. You really get your money's worth. Just download this - you will not regret it.

A winner… Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 10th, 2021
Erik is a great teacher and Cincinnati Kid is a very thought out and comprehensive routine that will knock your gambling friends socks off. There’s even a few sleights that were new to me that I’ll be using often.

Phenomenal Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 22nd, 2021
I rarely give reviews on anything, but this one is definately worth every penny and a few minutes of my time. I understood most of trick, but often the value is simply in the lesson itself so you understand the handling, patter, and the bonus material that comes with it.

A great card trick for the budding magician as well as someone at an intermediate level wanting to add another trick to their repertoire. This is an absolute winner and a great buy!
Great job, Erik Tait, thank you!

Another Great Routine from Erik Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 17th, 2022
Erik is an excellent teacher which makes this routine quickly accessible. Strong reactions from lay people. Expanded instruction on sleights which might seem challenging for beginners. Worth more than the slight investment. (Will take a bit of practice, of course.)

Fun Bold Easy-ish Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2021
Very fun routine to do. Some of the techniques are rather Bold but nothing is very difficult. Will still take a few days of practice for a beginner to feel comfortable attempting.

Erik teaches extraordinarily well and the structure of the tutorial is awesome.

5/5

Excellent value Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2021
This is a great routine that includes detailed tutorials of the several different slights that are used, along with variants that could be used here or in different tricks and routines.

Definitely worth the price, and especially good for someone who is relatively new to card magic or wants to up their game beyond self-working effects.

Worth Report this review

If you don't know and want to expand your card skills just go for it. The price isn't bad at all for the tools you'll gain.
