"Some years ago Les performed an original dice and cards mentalism piece for some friends. They asked that he perform this effect for a gentleman seated across the room. Not knowing who the gentleman was, Les obliged and ultimately baffled Harry Lorayne, at least for a little while! Harry asked permission to write up the routine in Tarbell 7 and named the effect Die-Duction.

Being a Philly boy like myself, Les used to hang out with Nat Litt, Lee Gray and was Jack Chanin's doctor for a while. Through the decades, Les honed his skills and created many wonderful routines and some great variations on existing ones. I am delighted to bring to you, More with Les!

The effects chosen for this dvd are rather simple to execute, fun to perform and have a great reaction from any age audience! We think you'll enjoy the magical teachings from a very humbled gentleman!"
-Howard A. Baltus

The Tricks You'll Learn:

1. Coin Transference by Les Albert

Influences and inspirations from Lee Gray and Jack Chanin. Years later a similar routine was published by Paul Chosse.
Copper and silver coins jump back and forth several times; copper coins turn to silver, silver coins turn to copper, and then all returns back to normal. Truly a wonderful effect that is easy to master. You will use this one in your act!

2. Flushstrated Aces - Routine by Les Albert

Cutting the Aces by Patrick Reymond. Another great variation to a classic four ace production and then some!

3. Triple Prediction Revisited

Originally performed by Dai Vernon; made easier by Les.

4. 515 - Les Albert - Les Albert

A mentally selected card vanished from the deck and appears pretty much anywhere the performer desires.

5. Group Therapy

Variation on an effect written by Jean Hugard found in the Encyclopedia of Card Magic.
A mentally selected card from a group of cards is found in a way that will fool magicians!

6. Coins Sleightly Grey

Lee Greys (Kanter's Magic) Traveling Coins. The name says it all! This is Lee Grey's routine taught to Les by Lee himself!

7. Magic Coin & Deck - Les Albert

A simply brilliant use for a coin set that you already own! The routine that Les devised is pure magic that incorporates coins and cards into a classy performance piece.

8. Die-Duction - Les Albert - Tarbell 7

This was the first trick that Les had published. It's perfect mentalism that works well with any gaming or gambling routine involving dice and cards.

9. The Kings Deal - An elevator card variation.

Perfect for gambling or cheating at cards demonstrations. Les's presentation makes great use of the elevator card principle.

10. Paddle Hop - Les Albert

We've all played with the Money Paddle at some point in our magical lifetime,but not this way!

11. Couples Therapy - Les Albert

The magic happens between the two spectators. Using a couple from the audience, he touches any card; she looks at the card which is mixed back into the deck. He is asked to slide a facedown card forward. She names the card he chose a moment ago. When he turns over the card, it's the one he touched and she saw! Sound confusing? That's why it's called Couples Therapy!

***BONUS EFFECT

Coins Across - Performance only!

While this coin classic has seen it share of printed articles, books, videos and dvds, we decided to include it on this dvd because of its strength in performance. It's a fun piece to perform and when the right spectator is chosen to help you, anything goes!
An early routine of Coins Across done is the hands with brass covers can be found in Hoffman. Its origins are also noted by reginald scott in 1584.

Running Time Approximately 1hr 53min
