This is more than an open prediction. This is two open predictions where all the work happens in your spectator’s hands, requires minimal sleight of hand, and if that wasn’t enough, they shuffle the deck at the very beginning of the effect. You’re about to perform your new closer when you play Both Sides Against The Middle by Dan Harlan.

Here’s what happens:

The audience is given a deck of cards to shuffle and examine before the trick begins while they openly place a prediction on the table. The magician then hands the spectator the deck to shuffle underneath the table. They take any card they want out of the deck, turn it face up, and then put it back in the deck. They can then shuffle the deck again, still under the table, before placing the deck back on the table. The deck is spread, and despite the deck being under the audience’s control the entire time, when the deck is spread, the only card face up in the deck is the same one written on the prediction. The face-up card is removed from the deck along with the cards on either side. The audience freely selects either of the cards surrounding the predictions. That card is turned over, and it matches another prediction that has been written on the other side of the original open prediction.

Both Sides Against The Middle comes with a very special deck of cards that does all the work for you. You’ll not only learn the secret to this incredible effect but also all of the subtleties that Dan uses when he performs this as his closing effect. This is an impossible card effect that you will use to close your next performance with a deck of cards. Your audience is going to feel whiplash from this incredible double prediction effect when you perform Both Sides Against The Middle.

Excellent card trick. Great for close-up or table hopping. This may not fool a professional card magician, but it stops Muggles dead in their tracks. Dan has presented a great trick. Easy to learn and fun to do.

VERY GOOD TRICK IT WILL BE FUN TO PERFORM AND EASY TO DO. I DON'T THINK YOU CAN DO IT WITH STAGE MAGIC BECAUSE THE ONE EASY MOVE THE AUDIENCE MAY SEE. ITS GOOD FOR A FEW FEW P[EOPLE AT A TABLE OR WALK AROUND MAGIC

Simple trick, easy 2 perform Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 22nd, 2022
This trick can be performed by 7 y/o & up. No major sleight of hand needed. One "maneuver" (I am not going to reveal that secret, Dan & anyone who has purchased this trick knows what it is) that does need some practice, just based on timing/pacing of your performance and confidence, if you are a beginner/novice.

Thanks Dan

It's exactly as shone in video. Very easy can really take the time to build to climax. Without tipping methods the other side could be so much more.
