Card Between the Aces





Effect: The spectator chooses a card and places it face up between the two black aces (face down). These are then returned to the deck and flipped over and the spectator's card has disappeared. The magician looks a bit for the card and then ribbon spreads the deck to find the card between the face up red aces.

Method. This trick takes a little preparation and a little sleight. During the preparation I usually say that I have to put the aces on the top of the deck. First, put a red ace face up on the bottom of the face-down deck. Then, place the other three aces on top: black ace, red ace, black ace. Now you are ready to begin. Hold the deck face down in a mechanic's grip. Take the first card, a black ace, off the top of the deck like you were executing a double-lift, only don't.

Show the spectator the card, then replace it on the top of the deck like a double lift just occurred. Then lay it on the table face-down and show them that this is indeed the black ace. Then fan cards and let them pick a card. While you have them look at it, execute a little-finger break. Have them place it face up on the first black ace so that half of the back of the ace is showing. Then double lift the two aces and show them the other black ace on the bottom and then replace it on the deck and put the actual top card, the red ace, on top of the outside half of the face up card.

Restate the fact that their card is between the two black aces. While doing so, execute a little finger break on ONLY the top card, the black ace. Then scoop up the cards w/o screwing up the order and set them on top the top card, which has a little finger break. Immediately slide your thumb under the break and turn all four cards over, keeping them well squared. Then, one at a time, take the two black aces off the top and note the their card has disappeared. Discard the two aces. The top of the deck is now their card face-down on a red ace face-up. Now look into the middle of the deck (actually cut the cards, but don't make it too obvious) and say that you don't see it. You have to cut the deck before they try to look at the top card.

Now ribbon spread them and point out the other two red aces and pull out the card between them. The trick is done. I have used this for a long time and many times over on the same people, and it continues to baffle them every time. Even the best of critics don't get all of it.
