This is no medical miracle. It's simply a diabolical deck of cards that lets you operate like a master magician.
The Cardiologist Deck can be shuffled - by both the magician and the spectator - at any time. Even so, the magician can instantly, without complicated sleight of hand, find the mate of any card freely selected by the spectator. No matter how often the cards are shuffled - or by whom - the magician can instantly pair up the entire pack with surgical precision!
Tomas Medina, creator of the Cardiologist Deck gives you all the details on how the deck works, from detailed anatomy to its inner-workings. There is no fumbling, no special memory work, no riffle-shuffle technique or complicated sleight of hand to learn. In fact, using the Cardiologist Deck is so dead easy, a first-year medical student can do it.
For students in residency (advanced card handlers), Medina teaches several stunning card revelations. Use these to produce the mate of a spectator's selection from the Cardiologist Deck, or as a killer finish to card effects you already perform. Warning: practice time in the lab may be required!
Special Bicycle deck included!
Give your card magic the transplant it needs -- the Cardiologist Deck!NOTE: Color of deck may vary.
The perfect, portable mentalism effect, which is perfect for stage, walk around, and close-up!
MY PRECIOUS is an amazing routine that is based on a combination of the finest concepts and principles in mentalism.
The routine that is suggested is taken directly from Haim Goldenberg's act, which he has performed successfully for the past six years. MY PRECIOUS is well polished and is one of Haim's favorite routines.
The performer shows the strong relationship between women and their jewelry, and how the last affects the woman's body-language. With 4 volunteers on stage, you, the mentalist, will be able to determine which ring is whose just by looking at the women's body language. And most impressive - you will be able to describe a ring just by watching at the body language of the volunteer.
The routine is full of humor and charm! All the necessary accessories are included along with the specially designed leather bags.
Very easy to perform - no special preparation! Adaptable to any kind of performer. Flexible - create your own routine! No pre-show work at all and no special preparation!
Small, easy, and clean! Put it in your pocket and you are ready to go for a full 5-8 minute entertaining routine!
Note: Color may vary.
Kenton is known as a hard-working, award-winning creative mentalist.
But we all need to have some FUN sometimes too! Wait until you see how Kenton relaxes with a deck of cards...
In this jam-packed DVD some of the most unusual card effects and bizarre methods are revealed in full at last.
"Subliminally Wild" : One card is shown among a bunch of blank cards. The performer apparently uses subliminal influence to make a spectator continually choose the one real card.
The finale comes when the spectator looks at all of the cards fanned fairly in front of her and is told to take out ANY card other than the one playing card. She freezes, laughs, and simply cannot do so! The spectator is snapped out of her trance and everyone sees things normally again. PURE KENTON.
"Kenton's Four Card Trick" : is one of the most bizarre versions of "Twisting The Aces" you'll ever see. Four cards turn over one at a time repeatedly. Then suddenly... the cards ALL CHANGE from red faces to blacks! All four cards are shown once again fronts and back, and dropped on the table. DO THIS for real people and they are stunned! BEST OF ALL, KENTON'S METHOD IS EASY - REALLY EASY!
"Slo-Mo Monte" : Three Card Monte done in the hands. No tossing, no funny moves. The odd card is face down, yet jumps from bottom to the middle repeatedly, without sleight of hand. Finally, the odd card jumps to the top, and another card changes to it too! There is now a new odd card, and it acts just like the first one. This card is even put into the performer's pocket, but it jumps right back in between the other two cards again. THE CARDS MAY BE EXAMINED. No sleights!
"Ultimate Diminishing Card": A prediction of a selected card is found to be incorrect. INSTANTLY AND WITH NO COVER AT ALL the poker-size card changes visibly into a miniature card - a "smaller number" that matches the card chosen by the spectator. A Kenton Origination Like Nothing Else.
KENTON'S LEGENDARY SPONGE BALL ROUTINE is also included on this DVD. AT LAST YOU CAN SEE CLEARLY all of the moves, subtle nuances, bold and brilliant original concepts of Kenton's so you can learn this routine easily. We know you've been waiting for years for us to do this. Now it's here.
Anytime Kenton performs close-up magic for magicians and mentalists, two tricks are most asked about: Kenton's "Trick Deck/Real Deck Routine" and Kenton's "Sponge Ball Routine". Due to special arrangement with Murphy's Magic, we have been allowed to reshoot Kenton's original routine so that it could be seen in far better lighting conditions, with real reactions from an audience. This alone is worth the price of this DVD.
There is more, but you get the idea. Loads of eye-popping FUN and memorable magic that is unusual, different and easy to master. It's what you'd expect from Kenton; original effects, methods, odd twists and turns, all within the range of most any performer.
Enjoy this unique and eclectic collection both at home, performing for friends, family, or in the finest of close-up shows.
You'll have lots to ponder and enjoy in Kenton's very full "Full House" DVD

Three face down cards are shown and tabled to one side for the moment. Introducing a regular deck of cards, you have one selected, signed across its face, returned and then lost.
The deck is now set aside, as you show the three cards tabled earlier. Incredibly, all three appear to be the signed selection! Then the cards become shy and refuse to show their faces in public, backing away from everyone (all three cards now have backs on both sides!) Finally, they all return to normal!
This is a brilliant routine and easy to perform. Only three cards are used - apart from those in your deck that is!
Includes a similar bonus routine called Trio!
The gaffed cards required to make up both effects are standard gimmicks which you probably already own!

Playing cards are arguably the most popular magic prop in the world, but of course not only magicians buy cards. Recently, designer decks have become all the rage for card players and collectors, and they may be changing the face of magic.

He makes his living performing close-up magic in the Toronto area, and his shows are filled with fresh magic that he creates for his own use. His style is playful, self-deprecating, and visual. He rarely uses a table. His material is worked through completely, tested in every conceivable environment, and honed to perfection through countless tableside performances.

The Monk's Way: Mr. Fogg Tracked Down
As we continue to reestablish the audience's role not only as viewer but also as an integral part of our methods, let's turn to the subject of routining. Magicians tend to take a linear approach: step one leads to step two leads to step three and bang! We use misdirection and sleights and presentation to cover this direct-line process. But imagine if the primary method could be hidden elsewhere - in the context of another trick. Unlike multiphase routines, with one phase setting up for the next, our objective is disjointing the method from the effect. In this way, the sleight-heavy baggage has been dropped and the effect has a much more magical sense. Let's examine this approach as applied to Vernon's classic Travelers, in which four signed Aces are first lost into the deck and then magically appear in four separate pockets.
Loving Mentalism: The Spirit Scrawl
Spirit writing is a timeless effect that still packs a powerful punch. We're all familiar with the traditional methods using old-fashioned slates with secret flaps, as well as more modern variations on the same theme. This month's "Loving Mentalism" item is a simple, easy spirit writing effect that uses nothing more than a few business cards - and they aren't even gaffed. After displaying the cards slowly and fairly on both sides, you can make any writing you want appear on the cards while they are held in the spectator's own hands. What's more, you end completely clean with nothing to hide. This is a highly versatile method that you can adapt to suit many different themes and styles. The ultra-simple method is sure-fire and always leaves a lasting impression.
Bent on Deception: Have a Great Show!
This month, Mike unleashes upon the magic world his Amazing Three-Step Miracle Marketing Success System. People have hypothetically offered to buy this system for over $1 million! But he's not going to charge that, because he wants to give back to the magic community that has given so much to him. This no-holds-barred marketing approach is guaranteed to produce results that will get you more gigs, virtually overnight! Well, results not guaranteed, and "night" at the North Pole is approximately six months long.
Classic Correspondence: Lloyd Jones to Dave Fiscus (Part 2)
We rejoin Lloyd Jones' letter to Dave Fiscus, written in 1958. The letter represented a master's thesis on the state of the magic world in America during the middle of the 20th century. Lloyd continues to point out the pros and cons - well, mostly cons - of becoming a full-time professional magician:
For What It's Worth: Judgment Day
There is not a formal body of literature that can properly be called "magic criticism." Certainly there is nothing that compares to the formal body of criticism for literature, art, and film. Written, "legitimate" criticism of magic is relatively rare. If there is not legitimate criticism of the art form, how are we supposed to refine our art and pass guidance down to subsequent generations? (By the way, how good a job have we done with that recently?)
Walkabout Soup: Life, Death, and the Hollywood Fringe Festival
As I write this, I'm in the middle of a week of severe crunch-time preparing for a solo show in the Hollywood Fringe Festival. The show opens in four days. It involves a lot of new material. Much of this material requires complicated R&D, weird shopping lists, and unusual construction techniques. You know, business as usual for anyone attempting to create an original magic show.
