Very Ambitious Card





Effect: A spectators card rises from the center to the top of the pack repeatedly. (As in the ambitious card). Then the performer places the card in the center of the pack once more, and the card jumps out of the pack and lands in the hand of the performer.

Card Trick:

Have a spectator select a card and place it the center of the pack. Hold a break above the card ABOVE the selected card with the little finger of the hand holding the pack. Perform a pass bringing the selected card second from the top. Perform a double lift showing that the selected card has risen to the top. Replace the card (cards) on top of the pack. Now take the top card (not the selected card) and place it in the center of the pack. Once again the selected card will appear to rise to the top. Riffle shuffle the pack and make sure the top card becomes second from the top. (riffle the last card from one pile onto the top card of the other.) Lift the top two cards as one and make a sharp bend in them along the width. Tell the spectator that you are bending the selected card so that they will be able to see it at all times. Replace the card (cards) on top of the pack. Take the top card and place it in the middle while holding down the other bent card on top of the pack. On the count of three release the pressure from the bent card on top and it will appear as if the bent (selected) card has risen to the top. Now false cut and false shuffle the pack. Perform an AutoCut as seen on Jeff McBride's Art of Card Manipulation volume 3. Have the spectator place a hand on each pile. Instruct them to lift one hand. Whichever hand they lift, take the pile with the selected card on top. Tell the spectator that their card will now leap out of the pack, do a triple flip, and land in your other hand. Now hold the (1/2) pack in your strong hand in position for a one handed fan. Place your thumb at the back lower left hand corner of the pack. With a sharp flicking motion (using your index finger as a pivot), the card will spin out of the pack. It is a knack, that can be acquired after repeated practice. Catch the spinning card in your other hand and the trick is complete.
