What will he teach?
My 4F’s Routine See and learn the latest 4Fs card routine presented with great success by George Iglesias at the last FFFFs Convention. A tribute to the great Simon Lovell.
Ruining the surprise – The magician breaks an important rule of magic and reveals the final surprise of the effect long before the trick even takes place. A card is selected, signed and lost in the deck. Two kings are inserted face up in the middle and the signed card is supposed to appear in between the two kings. Things go wrong and the signed card ends up on top of the deck. No worries. A promise is a promise. The signed card, which was clearly left on top of the deck, appears in the center of the deck between the two kings by merely snapping the fingers.
Anti Ambitious Card – A card that rises always to top is now clearly left on top to drop to the bottom of the deck in a blink of an eye.
NonTop – Explanation of a new card technique developed by George. A very deceptive displacement of a card. Very useful to accomplish strong effects with cards.
Tarot Reading – Using some of the mayor arcana cards and spectator is asked to freely look at only one card and memorize it. The cards are all mixed and George will start to read their future AND guessing the right selection.
