Taped at the same time as The
Cardician but released eleven years later this broadcast quality DVD
once again allows you to experience Edward Marlo in his prime. You will
learn many of Marlo's favorite routines and techniques as only he could
demonstrate them. It is full of card magic that Marlo students have
always yearned to see.
Routines and techniques performed and explained:

shuffled deck is cut in half and a selected card jumps from the top of
the spectator's packet to the magician's packet.

- Multiple Minus Bottom: A spectator decides the order of the four aces and at what positions they will be dealt from the deck.
- Mock Center: A center dealing
demonstration where the four aces are placed face down in the center of
a face up deck and are dealt during a poker deal.
- Mock Faro: The red and the
black cards are interweaved so they alternate but upon displaying the
cards they are separated into reds and blacks.
- The Six Card Trick: A quick and direct version of the six-card repeat which has a kicker ending and uses a regular deck.

of the Edward Victor routine where a spectator hands you ten cards but
each time you count them you have too many or too few cards.
