TENTING TRIP Phil Goldstein

TENTING TRIP Phil Goldstein

This is a two-phase routine with a plot that is simple and quick: a chosen card jumps invisibly from the pack to a packet, then back again. You will need a deck of cards with two identical jokers, plus one gimmicked card: a double-facer, showing a joker on one side, the five of hearts on the other. (This latter side can be any card, but the joker/ 5H combination is the one found in the standard double-faced assortment sold by the dealers).

At the start of the routine, have the normal 5H on top of the pack. The two jokers and the double-facer are in a separate packet, with the DF at the face of the packet, joker side aligned with the normal faces.

1) Begin by showing the three-card packet as being three jokers. You may wish to use a Back Count to show backs on all three^cards, but this is hardly necessary. Table the packet face down, as you explain that these three jokers will help you in this trick.

2) Force the normal 5H from the pack upon the spectator. Hold the deck face down in the left hand. Retrieve the 5H from the spectator, and position it openly into the grasp required for the Finley Tent Vanish, as shown in Fig.l.

3) The Tent Vanish is now performed, as follows: the right hand comes over the angled card (5H) and pretends to palm tljat card. Under cover of the right hand, the left thumb moves slightly, allowing the angled card to fall flush with the pack. When the right hand moves away, keep the left thumb raised. Nothing seems to have changed, and it will look as if you have removed the angled card with your right hand.

4) Make a "crumpling" motion with the right hand, claiming that you are making the 5H invisible. Pantomime tossing this invisible card over to the tabled packet.

5) Say, "The selected card is really gone. . ." Here, perform a Double Turnover, showing an indifferent card atop the pack (and establishing the absence of the 5H). Allow the face up double to fall square with the top of the pack. Now, the right hand removes the top single card, as the left hand simultaneously turns inward to prevent the spectators from viewing the 5H face up atop the talon. The right hand turns the indifferent card face down, and replaces it on top of the pack. Thus, you have secretly placed the 5H face up second from the top.

6) In the course of tabling the pack, perform a Pass to bring the reversed 5H to the centre.

7) Pick up the joker packet. Holding the cards face down, perform an Elmsley Count, three-as-four. This will display a 5H face up among three face down cards — the selected card has arrived in the joker packet.

8) Square the packet. Turn the packet face up. Mime extracting the 5H from the packet, and tossing it toward the tabled deck. Perform a three-card Olram Subtlety. As the double-facer is in the middle of the packet, you will thus display three jokers, backs and fronts. Tossing the cards to the table in the course of this action confirms the vanish of the five of hearts.

9) Ribbonspread the deck, revealing the 5H face up at centre. At this point, all attention is on the pack — which is clean.
