One for The Money by Bill Goldman
The effect is similar to any card any number, the magic key lies in how to guide the audience , the effect still can. The operation is relatively simple , not too complicated stuff .
If you only know one card trick this should be it
This revolutionary trick brings one of the most effective plots in all of card magic within the reach of all performers of magic. The effect is a classic-the selected card is found at any number named by a spectator under test conditions.
What Bill brings to the method is classic Goldman diabolical thinking that makes the routine extremely easy to do. Bill’s solution does not rely on clever sleight-of-hand but on audience management timing and language. One For The Money is without question a routine you’ll use over and over for years to come. I know it’s been in my repertoire since Bill first taught it to me. But it’s more than a trick. One For The Money is a lesson in structure and presentation that will give the thinking magician an amazing lesson that should be adapted to all of your routines.
