Original title: Award Winning Card Magic Volume #2

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:
Down The Garden Path: In a card control demonstration where a selected card is placed among the four queens but manages to completely disappear and appear face-up in the middle of the deck.
A Problem With Fulves: A multi-phase Triumph routine where the cards are repeatedly shuffled face-up and face-down and each time the deck is spread all the cards are facing the same way except for a Queen. On the third try the cards are shown to be all face-up except four face-down cards in the middle that surprisingly turn out to be the four aces.
Fastest Card In The West: A quick routine where a spectator thinks of a card he sees in the center of the deck and you make it jump out of the middle by supposedly using a center deal.
Peek Control #1: A spectator peeks at a card in the middle of the deck. The deck is turned face-up and the face card is used as an indicator by counting down its numerical value. The thought of card is found in that position.
Peek Control #2: A spectator peeks at a card in the middle of the deck. After the spectator names their card you immediately spell down to it from the top of the deck.
Jacks Or Better: This is one of Martin’s trademark routines and is an act in itself. It is a 15-minute, five-phase routine where different selected cards continuously appear between the two red jacks under more, and more impossible conditions.

Additional techniques explained within routines: Easy Pinkie Break, Side Glide, Optical Revolve, Side-Steal Control, Pseudo One-Handed Center Deal, Top Stock Controls, Multiple Peek Controls, Slip Cut, Triple Under Cut, Kelly Bottom Placement, Running False Cut, and much more.
