Daryl’s Hot Shot Cut is probably the most beautiful card shooting move there is. Many people are asking me to learn them this move. This move can really be used to perform magic. David Blain used it on his first tape “street magic” and the shot is completely explained by Daryl on the encyclopedia of […]
I never managed to master this one either but to be complete: Found on page 126, in The Tarbell course in magic vol. 4. See picture for instructions.
First a double lift and take the cards as one in the right hand on the fingers. Ring finger on the top right corner, thumb on the bottom right corner index finger bends the cards downward let the cards shoot from the thumb to shoot it to the left hand (or from the ring finger […]
Cards jumps from right to left hand package and from left to right. (as seen on David Blaine Video Street Magic and even better on his “Showman” tape). Take cards in left hand and do similar to a snap double lift (Larry Jennings). i.e. the top card is buckled (curved) and you put your index […]
Gregory showed me this one at the Dutch Magic Convention in may 2002. Grip a card between the index and the thumb at about the middle of the long side. Then you flick with your middle finger the card strait up or a bit with an angle to boomerang the card. Extra: An alternative which […]
This shot is probably based on Paul le Paul’s “Rapid one hand deal” but this one is performed by the index finger and not with the thumb.This is the technique: Index finger on right corner of the deck and the rest of the deck is holding it on the most right ends with the thumb […]
This is a really basic one but I added it to be complete: The index or middle finger flicks the card from the top of the deck. This can also be done without the rest of the deck, you can also grip it with the left hand and flick it with the index or middle […]
Nicholas Einhorn “Nicks’s flick” or Jean Pierre Vallarino “kick deal” as seen on World Greatest Magic: This is more like a fast top throw or push off with the index finger with a twist in the wrist. See Nicholas Einhorn’s lecture note “commercial magic 2000” for a complete instruction and a method for catching by […]
This picture is from page 125 in The Tarbell course in magic vol. 4. This move is hard to do and the shot is not very far. But to be complete here is the picture from the book.
This shot look nice if you can keep shooting. This one is really hard to get it right. Juliana Chen has a similar effect in her show and I think it is almost the same technique. The shot is called Pop-up cards (favourite by Audley Walsh) and I found it on page 123-124 in The […]
