Beware novice magicians! Report this review

I am writing this review as a beginning magician. This trick is described as “semi-automatic “, but it really isn’t. The trick involves some significant card manipulation, which Mr. Ortiz handles ridiculously fast, but is way beyond what I can handle. My major complaint is with the video instructions. The lengthy video goes into great detail about the theory behind this type of card manipulation, but does not include a step by step walkthrough of the trick itself. Also, Mr. Ortiz speaks very quickly, and has a very heavy accent, the combination of which makes the video very hard to understand. I have purchased several tricks that I am very happy with, but I regret buying this one.

When playing a video from Penguin you can slow it down (or speed it up). I find that helps a lot with accents, as well as fast (or slow) talkers.
