Who better than Paul Wilson to provide us with several practical methods for ringing in a cooler. The hundreds he did filming his BBC television series are probably more than any crooked gambler did under fire in their lifetime.

I particularly like that he teaches methods both for under fire and "on the offbeat." All are deceptive, elegant and practical. His advice on "getting in" and "getting out" is something I have never found in the few other places a cooler has been taught. Thanks Paul, thanks Art of Magic.



This is an excellent video on how to switch a deck in play. Much has been written on this subject as well as a number of videos. However, this video demonstrates some very practical deck switches which could be used by the magician for switching in a memorized deck or that special setup for the final effect.



If you do any work with memorized, stacked, gimmicked or gaffed decks you need to know more than one way to load and ditch said decks. This video is a steal for t he price. Paul Wilson delivers what can be considered a short masterclass on the subject. Any of these switches can elevate your magic to a higher level. Needless to say I am very pleased with my purchase.



This tutorial by Paul Wilson is essential for anyone using a cold deck and isn't that everyone who does card magic?
You will learn that there is no need for special props with the methods that are taught, at most just a card box.
Paul Wilson is a great teacher. He explains everything in great detail and the camera work is what you would expect from Art of Magic.



R. Paul is an amazing resource for table workers, as well as a terrific teacher. This video contains very useable strategies and techniques for the tabled deck switch. Highly recommend.



I was hoping for a slow step by step movements.
