This is the sixth volume in this series of easy-to-do, subtle card effects from master card trick creator, Nick Trost. As with the rest of the books in this series, Mr. Trost's card magic is based on subtle moves and principles, rather than difficult sleight of hand - leading to audience astonishment. The majority of the material has not been previously published. There are over 100 tricks in 13 chapters, including Unique Card Effects, Coincidences, Court Card Capers, Blackjack Bafflers, Poker Puzzlers, Gambling Tricks, Divinations, Predictions and ESP Card Tests. Two chapters with new and different effects are also included: "Gilbreath Plays Poker, Part 3" and "Triple Dealing Effects."
You'll enjoy performing his style of magic, concentrating on presentation to WOW your audience!

"I urge you to acquire this latest entry; you are going to enjoy it... Texas Hold'em Poker Deal is a really sweet instance of the genre... No skill required, minimal setup... This has become my favorite routine of any discussed (in this series)." - Steve Bryant, Little Egypt Magic, March 2017
"This may be the best book of the series, so far." - Steve Beam
"The name Nick Trost has always been synonymous with good, simple and commercial magic. (He) is one of my heroes in card magic... Nick's fertile imagination has created some of the most truly memorable effects during the past few decades..." - Aldo Colombini
There are some gems in this book but it is top heavy on gambling routines. Brag, cribbage and gin mean very little to me and will probably have limited appeal. Nick Trost explores various principles to the limit. The book is a must for all Nick Trost fans and I can`t wait for the final three volumes. There is buried treasure in the book but you must dig deep for it. I have only tried out a fraction of the routines but top picks to date are : - Curious Aces, Magnetic Aces, Clubbed Again and Hummer`s Royal Delight. The Triple Dealing Principle was new to me, although I possess the Colin Mulcahy book. Much of the material is clever and well thought out. If you don`t buy it somebody will fool you with some of the material.
