The Seventh Son
Expert Card Technique: Close-Up Table Magic by Jean Hugard and Frederick Braue
Page 389 et seq.
Personal Comment: An ace production.... done with sevens. It is self working but the routine and the closing monologue offers time misdirection to get away with this. Cute side note: The trick is in the chapter about self working tricks. In the book it tells you to do a pass and all of that. Well, well... it can be self working if you openly cut the cards. I read the original patter, that is why I miscalled the Seven of Hearts as the Seven of Diamonds. It was not done on purpose, but I didn't feel like doing another video. Is the trick good. Well if you suck at doing card magic... yes. But if you suck at doing card magic, why are you doing card magic?
Difficulty: Self Working
