Effect: The magician shows the first card on top of
a shuffled deck. By showing it, the magician bend the card as
a mark. The magician then puts the card anywhere in the deck.
Then with the index of his right hand he points the bottom of
the deck going up slowly. When he gets to the top of the deck,
the bended card jumps out of the deck. (A very good variation
for the Elevator trick).
Even if considered as a Hard trick, the trick is very easy.
You will need to master a
Shuffle the deck good. Old the deck in your left hand.
Then, with the right hand, do a (Double Lift) to get the first
two cards of the deck. Make sure that the spectators only sees
the second card face. Show the face of the (second) card by
holding the cards to the spectators. Then bend the cards in
two, then release, it makes a small curve in the card and will
be use as a mark for the spectators. Then put back the two
cards on top of the deck that you are still holding in your
left hand. Make sure to hold down the two cards on the deck by
placing the thumb and the middle finger of your left hand on
the the middle of the cards. Then pull off the top card with
your right hand showing that it is still the bended card that
they saw earlier. DO NOT SHOW THE FACE OF THE CARD. Put the
card anywhere in the deck.
Then the beauty of the trick.
With the index of your right hand point the bottom of the
deck going up slowly, as if you are pushing the card to the
top. When you arrives to the top of the deck release the top
card (the chosen one) by lightly releasing the thumb and the
middle finger of your left hand. DO NOT MAKE BIG MOVEMENTS
WHEN DOING SO.
Here you go, a nice effect for an elevator trick. Also,
don't repeat this trick with the same audience. It's a very
easy trick to discover, but when showed once the effects
showed look to great to be that easy.
Don't let examine! But if you kind of having no choice.
Secretly, bend backwards the entire deck to bend back the
second bended card in the deck.
