Pluck by Christian Grace
The effect is the stuff of legends: a GENUINELY free choice of any card is hopelessly lost in the deck. The magician then cascades the cards to the table and “plucks” just two cards from the cascade…but neither are the selection. Instead, the plucked cards form a number–a Two and a Six, 26–and the selected card is found at that position in the pack! The spectator can deal the cards and the two cards plucked from the middle really are caught from a cascading spread. No breaks or special cards are required.
Easy to do
Christian Grace has developed a concept that is part subtlety, part basic sleight-of-hand, and part mathematical, and the combination is a perfect blend. This effect takes some knack but can be learned within minutes and mastered with just a minimum of practice. Taught in careful detail by Christian Grace, “Pluck” is sure to fool magicians and laymen at your next performance.
