Rise Rise Rise

apparently show the top card also naming it to point up the fact that the top card is, in this case, the Three of Clubs. Turn the three cards, as one, face down onto the deck.

4. Place the pack face down onto the table and state that you will cause the AS to rise to the top of the pack right through the Three of Clubs.

5. Both hands are now brought alongside of the deck, as in Figure 35, then, wiggling the fingers, raise both hands about a foot above the deck at the same time saying, "Rise-Rise-Rise."

6. Bring both hands down again. Repeat the same action and incantation of "Rise-Rise-Rise."

Figure 36

1. Bring both hands down again as before; however, this time look directly at spectator and ask, "What card is in the center."

8. Still looking directly at the spectator steal the top card via the Angle Palm, then immediately raise both hands as you repeat, "Rise-Rise-Rise." At this stage, the condition is as in Figure 36 with the top card Angle Palmed and the Ace of Spades now face up on the pack.

9. Once the spectators realize the Ace of Spades is face up on top of the deck, the right hand, still with an Angle Palmed card, moves down to pick off the face up Ace from the deck by the ends from above.

10. The right hand, with the Ace, moves to the right while the left hand reaches for the new top card, which is picked off the deck by the left fingers and thumb at the inner end to turn it face up. The whole action is shown at this stage in Figure 37.

The action depicted at Figure 37 is covered by the patter line, "The Ace of Spades right through the Three of Clubs."

12. The above patter line is finished by saying, "As promised", during which brief moment the right hand has dropped its face up Ace to one side, then moves over to pick up the deck as in Figure 38. Left fingers still holding the Three of Clubs.

13. The right hand now starts to scoop up the deck at the same time the left

hand places the Three of Clubs aside as in Figure 39. The left hand should already be in position to receive the pack.

14. The effect has been described under the assumption that the performer is standing during the effect. However, the same sequence can be used even if seated.

Also, if seated, some may prefer to unload the card into the lap although the reloading is so clean and easy it really isn't necessary.
