RAFAEL BENATAR'S MORE ELEGANT MAGIC DVD
Rafael Benatar performs and explains more
of the elegant card routines that he uses to earn a living with as he
appears at parties, tradeshows and nightclubs all over Europe, South America
and the United States. In addition to the excellent card magic the DVD
includes a section on advanced double-card handling techniques where you
will learn how to flawlessly handle, show, replace and table double-cards.
Routines performed and explained:
The Clark Kent Card Change: An indifferent card visually changes into
the spectator's selected card as you blow on it.
69: A six turns into a selected nine while in full view. The selected
card is then shown to be a joker.
Neither & Also: Two selected cards are found in an offbeat and visual
A Perfect 10: Two cards are produced as the selection but are wrong.
When the pips of the two cards are added they total the selection's value.
The two cards visually melt into the selection.
The Rhythm Twins: A new handling for Brother John Hamman's classic
plot about twin Kings who married twin Queens.
The Unambitious Magician: A parody geared toward magicians where
obvious sleights are used to cancel each other.
Countdown: A startling assembly where Kings vanish from their packets
one at a time and appear in a leader packet. As a surprise finale all four
Kings appear in an unexpected place.
Right Between The Eyes: A card routine for the stage in which you
ascertain the name of a selected card by reading the hand of a lady who
picked it and then quickly pull it out of the shuffled deck from the pocket
of a gentleman. Then, to everyone's astonishment, the gentleman performs the
trick himself without knowing how.
Professional Oil and Water Routine: Ascanio’s Oil and Water smoothly
blended with Roy Walton’s Oil and Queens to form a very strong three-phase

explaining all the fine points of natural double turnovers as well as how to
handle, replace and table double cards. Techniques include: Slippery Double
