On this DVD, youâ€™ll meet six magicians who each have their own singular take on the Ace Assembly plot. First up is Bill Malone with an amazing and quite visual version that has a method that will make you smile. Then, Bruce Cervon ups the ante by using Aces with
opposite-colored backs while Alex Elmsley causes the Aces to not only assemble but to do so in a spectatorâ€™s hand! Dan Harlan is next with a variation that also uses odd-backed Aces in an unbelievably fair sequence that looks like real magic while Simon Aronson provides a graphic demonstration of why you never let anyone touch your Poker hand. Finally, James Swain closes out this volume with a version where a spectator actually chooses the packet into which the Aces assemble.
Hugard and Braue, in their classic book, Expert Card Technique, wrote, â€œOf all the tricks with playing cards, as much thought has been expended on the Four Ace trick as on any otherâ€¦â€ and the performers â€“ and performances â€“ youâ€™ll watch and learn from on this DVD are ample evidence why.
