The False Shuffles and Cuts Project by Liam Montier and Big Blind Media
In the world of card magic, the ability to convince your audience that you are shuffling the deck when you're actually not is a valuable skill. This skill allows you to perform mind-blowing tricks that seem impossible. Host Liam Montier has compiled a collection of the best false shuffles and cuts that are practical, deceptive, and easy to learn. These techniques can be used by any card handler, whether you're performing walk-around magic or sitting with friends at a coffee table. By learning and combining these techniques, you can create the illusion of shuffling the pack convincingly. The project also includes instructions for four incredible magic tricks, so you can put your new skills to the test right away.
There is nothing more valuable in the card magician's arsenal than the ability to convince your audience you are shuffling the deck, when in actuality you aren't. If your spectator's believe the cards are being mixed, whilst all the time you retain control of their order - then you can perform true MIRACLES! Indeed, this one skill can help transform simple self working tricks into jaw dropping slabs of IMPOSSIBILITY!
There are thousands of ways to false shuffle and cut the deck, but this project is not a cold encyclopaedic list of them. These are the A1, 24 Karat GOLD techniques that host Liam Montier has sought out and road tested on your behalf. To make the grade the featured cut or shuffle had to be practical, utterly deceptive and something YOU WOULD USE!
These powerful, deceptive skills are within the technical reach of any card handler (including some that are SO easy you could do them in your sleep!), and will have you up and running in no time.
Learning just one or two of these techniques is essential, but learning more will enable you to 'mix and match' the skills to create the unquestionable impression that you really are shuffling the pack. These are practical techniques - whether you are working walk-around magic, or sitting at a coffee table with some mates, you will be fooling them all in no time!
And at the end of the project four incredible magic tricks are also taught, so you can head out and test your new skills straight away!
