The Poker Formulas

Any Poker Hand Called For“ on speed: Deal any named poker hand to any number of players. Thousands of choices yet you deal any request. No rearrangements, no calculations, nothing to remember. A unique new concept in card magic.


The ultimate “Impossible Location“ : With the deck in his own hands, a spectator freely selects any card, replaces it anywhere in the deck and shuffles. All of this can be done in another room. Yet, you find the card, no questions asked.


A practical new tool for memorized – deck magic. The “Quartets“ concept opens the door to a multitude of new and diverse effects that would otherwise be impossible.

Game of Chance

There seems no way to cheat at this very simple game, and yet, somehow, spectator after spectator loses in ever more ridiculously funny ways. A full – blown, interactive performance piece. (And for this one, you don’t even need to memorize a stack.)
