A spectator cuts a deck of cards at a random spot and remembers the card they cut to. Their card is covered with your wallet to keep it safe. You then ask the spectator to "dig deep into her mind for a personal magic word." She has a free choice of almost any word she can think of!

Let`s say the spectator chooses "rose." The spectator`s magic word is then used to find the mate of her freely selected card. Impressive on it`s own, but what`s inside the wallet?

You open the wallet which has been on the table since the start and remove a small packet of cards from the inner pocket. The backs of these cards are a different color than the deck being used. Slowly and cleanly you deal the cards from the wallet onto the table face down. On the back of the first card is drawn a large "R", the next card has an "O", the next "S" and the last card an "E"...spelling out the spectator`s freely selected magic word!

This is the most hard hitting effect you can possibly perform. I've been performing this for years ever since it was first released, and years later it still gets the same reaction as it did back then, and that is beyond astonishment. It hits the spectators so hard that they still talk about it years later. The reactions have been anywhere from dead silence, to open mouthed, to screaming, to cursing loudly, to blank staring at the cards, to smiles, and even crying.

All people react differently when they're truly astonished by something, and this trick does just that and so much more for me. Depending on how you present this, you can either have the "magic word" out in full view for everyone to see and reveal the climax that way, or you can put the written word away in your pocket so that nobody knows the word except the spectator who wrote it and reveal it during the climax that way. My strongest reactions have come when using names and telling the spectator to think of someone important in their lives.

Using this persons name as your "magic word" and revealing that name as the climax gets reactions out of this world. What I also love about this trick is the pocket space. All you need to perform this miracle is the wallet, and the deck of cards that come with it, and both fit comfortably in your pockets. This trick also resets very quickly and will take approximately 10 seconds and you're ready to go again which makes this ideal for strolling magic. This trick is also very durable if you take care of it and will last you a long time.

I've had mine going on 7 years now and the deck is worn along with the wallet, but both still work fine to this day. This has been my closer for my close-up shows for a long time, because there's simply nowhere to go from here. You can't top this, it's just that good. In all my years of owning this wonderful trick, Chop was the only trick to even come close to being my closer instead of this, but even that trick failed to beat the deep astonishment reactions.

This is simply the best trick I've ever purchased in my career. For what this trick will give you throughout your magic life, it's simply worth its weight in gold. If you don't have this already, do your career a favor and get it.
