Hey everybody! Here's one of the strongest effects in my act:

I've been closing my act with this effect for about 5 years now. And, it's finally available in my new book Game Changer! By the way, the release of the new book is MUCH closer than you think. (The champagne is chilling in my fridge. That's how close we are.)

Leave a comment and let me know what you think of The Art of War!

Entertaining. Thanks for sharing.

FYI, it is possible to flip a coin and have it land heads up 20 times in a row. Unlikely? Yes. Possible? Definitely. Random doesn't always look random. These things matter to some of us, but not so much to others...

Derren Brown demonstrated this very thing on UK television - fairly flipped a coin into a glass bowl, and got heads ten times in a row. He'd actually been filming for a whole day before he finally got it. Do enough coin flips and at some point there WILL be ten heads in a row, you just have to look at the bigger picture.

There was also a programme many years ago which looked at chance and randomness. In one part someone was asked to arrange a deck of cards on a board, and to make it look as random as possible. On another board was a truly shuffled random order deck.
When compared side by side, the difference between truly random and what the participant thought looked random was very obvious. The truly random tended to have clumps of red or black cards, where as the other didn't.

The experiment was repeated several times with similar results.

I enjoyed it Jason.

Loved the spectator shows a 3 and you offer to switch to low card wins and you play a 2. Such a strong mini-phase. Timing of patter and action beautiful, particularly in that part.
