Original title: Award Winning Card Magic Volume #1

Martin A. Nash, who was one the most popular performers to appear at the Magic Castle's Close-Up showroom is also considered one of the most entertaining magicians with a deck of cards.

On this video you will experience his performing persona as "The Charming Cheat" and relish at his exceptional technical ability and flair for engaging presentations.

Martin thoroughly explains each trick, technique and routine as well as giving many professional touches that can elevate intermediate and advanced card magic to its highest level.

Routines performed and explained:
Kings Incognito: During a demonstration of the different types of shuffles that gamblers use, the deck is shuffled face up and face down. When the cards are re-spread all the cards are now facing down except for the four kings. The kings are then turned into the four aces.
Palm Unseen: In a demonstration of palming the four aces are apparently invisibly palmed and visually placed on the table.
In The Nick Of Time: A spectator looks at a card in the tabled spread, reassembles the deck and gives it a couple of cuts. The spectator then deals the cards face-up on the table and at some point you yell stop. The next card is the selection.
Limited Ambitions: A terrific small packet Ambitious Card routine with a kicker ending.
Ovation: The Ovation routine is an act in itself. This is what Martin uses to close his shows and often receives standing ovations. It is a multi-phase routine with card selections, discoveries, and impossible matching sequences.

Additional techniques explained within routines: Soft Shuffles, Overhand top stock control, Zarrow Shuffle, D’Amico Spread, Pull-Through Shuffle, spread location, New Deck Stay Stack, Deck Switch, Nash Classic Force, and much more.
