Helder Guimar?es Handling
Helder Guimar?es’ handling of ‘Countback Aces’ streamlines the effect even further.
Count Back to Count Down
A simple extension of ‘Countback Aces.’ Two spectators construct four packets and the top card of each reveals the location of the four Aces.
Addition to Count Back
Four packets are constructed by the spectator’s actions. The value of the top cards of each packet are added together and then the cards are changed magically into the four-of-a-kind equal to their total.
Four spectators each take a quarter of a shuffled deck, select a card from it and lose the card back in their packet while out of the magician’s control. The packets are then shuffled together and four packets are constructed. The top cards of each pile are the selections.
Count One Way (Gordon Bean)
This final trick inspired by ‘Countback Aces’ is a strong, hands-off card location from Gordon Bean.
A minimalist approach to Ed Marlo’s classic Elevator plot.
This handling of ‘Duplex’ offers a logical climax courtesy of Gordon Bean.
Duplex Addition (Gordon Bean)
Gordon’s handling of ‘Duplex’ which inspired ‘Duplex Remodeled.’
The magician demonstrates how he learned arithmetic from a deck of cards. Two number cards magically locate an amount of cards equal to their sum and product.
