A Professional Gambling Act
Andrew Wimhurst's Card Artistry DVD
Andrew Wimhurst is an artist with a deck of
cards. On this DVD he performs and explains his entire Gambling Act. This is
your chance to learn some of the most impressive advanced card magic you are
likely to see. Great presentations, routining and techniques.
Routines performed and explained:
Cheater's Aces: As you shuffle the deck you cut to three kings. You
then accidentally cut to a ten. Using it as an indicator your count down to
the tenth card and it is the fourth king.
'Em: You insert the four kings into four different parts of the deck.
Upon spreading the deck on the table you push out four cards from different
parts of the deck. The cards assumed to be the kings turn out to be the four
Topsy-Turvy Aces: The deck is shuffled face up and face down. You cut to
three face-up aces. The deck is then spread to show all the cards face up
except for the final ace.
Estimates The Aces: A spectator cuts the deck three times and each time
they cut to an ace. As a finale you shuffle and cut the deck producing the
At The Bridge Table: An amazing routine where a four of a kind is
removed and used in a demonstration of card control. Dealing a five handed
game of Poker you get the four of a kind. You then deal a game of Bridge
dealing yourself all of the Spades.
Poker Deal: A spectator names any four cards, which are placed in the
middle of the deck. You then use a center deal to get the four-of-a-kind to
your Poker hand. You repeat the deal this time dealing the four-of-a-kind to
any player they name while you surprisingly deal yourself the four aces.
To Cheat At 21: A self-working impossible location where the spectator
selects a card shuffles it into the deck and you quickly find it.
Cooler: A series of quick impossibilities where the spectator's selected
cards jump to your pocket, are re-selected, change places and ultimately the
deck disappears, leaving only the selection.
Mnemonic: A spectator shuffles the deck twice and you quickly memorize
its order. You then perform a memorized deck demonstration and finally deal
the deck for a game of Bridge giving yourself all the Spades. When the other
three hands are looked at they contain the Hearts, Diamonds and Clubs in
