Daniel Prado

Burn

Everyone asks the same question: "Could you cheat at cards?" Now you can answer...with a demonstration. This is, quite simply, the purest form of cheating we've found in a magic trick, all centered around the wildly popular game of Texas Hold 'Em. You appear to shuffle and cut the cards, but deal yourself four Aces, all according to the procedures of Texas Hold 'Em.

There are three great reasons you need to learn this routine:

1. It's authentic. The more someone knows about Poker, and Hold 'Em in particular, the more they will love "Burn."

2. Even if your spectators are not familiar with Poker, "Burn" is still extremely impressive.

3. "Burn" is not an easy routine, but it's also not extremely difficult. If you put in the work, you can make this look perfect.

Running time: approximatley 1 hour, 40 minutes

    Mariano asks: I still don't get what the trick is really about. It talks about dealing a hold 'em hand, but the trailer looks like it's an aces revelation. Is there an uncut live performance of it? Thanks!

    • 1. Daniel answers: Hi Mariano, Daniel Prado here. It is a Texas Hold'em demo. As you've seen, the cards are washed (or shuffled by a spectator, as I teach in one version of it on this tutorial), the cards are then shuffled in a standard casino procedure, and you control not only the aces for you, but the aces on the table (during the Flop, Turn and River) for whatever the number of hands you want. Inside this download, there is also a Royal Flush ending. I chose the aces for the trailer since they are more visual. You will have, also, a technique section, with detailed explanation of various different techniques not shown on the trailer, such as cull and different false table cuts. Some of them in slow motion so you can catch the way is really done. At last, but not least, this is actually an Uncut version, since there is no cut in the performance :) Cheers, Daniel

    Tim asks: Without giving too much away, how technical do you have to be? I.e., Should you be acquainted with SD/BD's or are they taught?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It will help if you are familiar with these moves but in answer to your question: it is not as technical as it looks.

    Ben asks: Just out of interest, do you need bee style cards or can it be done using NOC, Bicycles etc....

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You can use any deck.

This is my first time seeing Daniel Prado's work. Watching the trailer, I assumed that the main tutorial was going to be of the table wash sequence.

But Burn turned out to be a very in depth approach to the poker deal plot. Daniel goes into a great amount of detail on the various techniques used to make the effect possible.

I've learned a lot from this download, and really appreciated Daniel's thoughts on magic, the effect, and his teaching.

Highly recommended.
