Original title: Award Winning Card Magic Volume #3

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:
Blackjack Demonstration: A quick expose of cheating techniques that could be used in Blackajack while performing a routine where you deal yourself the best Blackjack combination.
Dunbury Delusion: Martin’s handling of the classic sucker effect where everyone thinks you failed to find the spectator’s card but of course you do.
Computer Card Trick: After shuffling and dealing the cards the deck acts as a computer to find the color, suite and value of a selection.
Vernash Aces: Four spectators shuffle a deck of cards and lose the four aces in different parts of the deck. After a few shuffles and cuts you find the four aces.
Celestial Aces #2: You shuffle and cut to each of the four aces and as a finale you shuffle and cut to a named card.
Mental Topper: A spectator names a card. You and a spectator then shuffle the deck. You then cut the deck into four piles where the selection and its three mates are found on the bottom of each pile.
Overkill: You shuffle and cut the deck into four packets. On top of each packet is a King. You then cut each packet in half… cutting to the four Aces.
Incomplete Masterpiece: A spectator remembers a card that he sees in the deck. A second spectator, using women’s intuition, cuts a small packet of cards. The quantity of cards in that packet is used to count down from the top of the deck to find the original spectator’s card.
Poker Opener: After shuffling the deck and letting a spectator cut each time you deal yourself the four Aces in a game of Poker.
Colors On The Match: Demonstrating how gamblers cheat by controlling cards, you deal a series of cards in alternating red, black order. But when you re-deal them they now in pairs 2-reds, 2-blacks, etc. They are then dealt in triplicate with 3-reds, 3-blacks, etc. You then shuffle the deck and let the spectators decide on how you deal, singles, doubles or triples. As a finale you show that the rest of the deck has been separated into reds and blacks.

Additional techniques explained within routines: Greek Deal, Crimping, Fan Force, Dad Stevens Control, Gamblers Cop, HaLo Cut, Incomplete Faro Control, Segregation Shuffle, and much more.
