Magic download (video) by Ben Train (14.40)
The following approach was originally brought to the table by Syd Segal in Full Metal Jacket (2005) under the name Very Fair Triumph. Ben Train offers personalization, history and clear teaching instruction make this video a worthwhile investment.
The cards are shuffled face-up into face-down. No false moves or suspicious sleight of hand. With a magical gesture, the entire deck straightens out with every card face-down, except for the selected card. A miracle at the card table. Dai Vernon would be proud!

Customer reviews for Triumph v136
This is a very direct and clever triumph. Ben gives you valuable theory and the reason for each action. He adds value to an already existing method that he thought he came up with himself. These are the types of downloads that I love.
What a great triumph trick, comes with two video downloads, the first is a demo, which is the same as in there add, second just over half an hour of play time, nice clean video, with close up camera angles, the video comes with detailed explanations, very easy to follow, very clean, very enjoyable to do,
No dodgy slights or moves, its done by just knowing how to handle the deck of cards, which is shown on this video
Ben gave me his DVD with his triumph . The explanation was not on it so I tried to figure out his method. I bought it to see if I was right, Recommended for sit down magic with a table
After thoroughly reviewing several Triumph versions online, I kept coming back to this one. Perhaps it was the least amount of moves involved and overall economy of motion that struck me. It just seems the most straight forward and magical version of the effect. Simply the most convincing demonstration of real magic. Thank you for sharing this technique. I look forward to practicing this one over and over with absolute delight! Excited...
This is one of the best triumph you'll learn, it is clean just as seen in video. A lot of "little moves" that will make this trick look very clean. No real major "moves" in this trick, no real unnecessary moves which is very nice, it won't leave the audience questioning your moves. Not hard to learn, he explains it very well, easy to follow, I got it on my first time watching this video. With a few practice (like all magic tricks) this is the only Triumph you'll ever need
This triumph routine was one of my favourites it was easy to do and was presentable their was no moves that I wasn't able to do or that someone could learn. Its also one that you can pull out of your back pocket in situations like preforming for family members or friends the only thing I wasn't sure of was that it was a little pricey but it is easy to do-do it anywhere anytime and learn it fast.
This is one the most simplest and easiest Triumphs I've ever seen. Simple is always better and this is one the most simple tricks. Its leaves the audience with that wow effect. Great trick to add to your arsenal. I never could decide what triumph to use and now I have one that I'm going to stick by. This trick is so worth it.
This is one of the most amazing versions of Triumph I have ever seen. I don't think anyone would be able to notice any sleights or movement done as it was done cleanly and neatly. However, I think that when spreading the cards in the end, the cards should be spread face-up as this allows the performer to then gradually open the faced down card to create tension instead of showing the recovery of the deck and the selected card together.
There are a lot of great triumphs out there and most of them use false shuffles to achieve the effect, the great part here is that there's no false shuffle. The cards do mix together with each other. It's a little knacky but not hard at all it's actually really easy and Ben gives a lot of great tips about performance and presentation and these were worth the price of the entire purchase alone. It's as good as the original but easier.
This is one of the best Triumphs I've ever seen in terms of ratio of ease to impact. Absolutely zero difficult moves, and it looks flawless. The tricky part is getting the shuffle sequence to look so smooth. I suspect that's why it didn't catch on more quickly when Syd Segal published it originally. Just from the written description, is is a clever method, but seems like it might turn out to be just another clunkly triumph that doesn't look quite natural. Luckily we now have visual confirmation of how great this method can look.
If you're Dani DaOrtiz, you should do his triumph (my favorite triumph, and equally simple, technically, but I still don't believe anyone other than Dani could actually pull it off). For everyone who is not Dani, you should learn this one.
Ok, this is a beautiful Triumph. Triumphs are always miraculous, however some are super easy (Cheek to Cheek) and others approach the need for expert skills, This is a trick for intermediate magicians to work on. You'll need to be able to hold a break and control some shuffle work. What's really beautiful about this one is a very simple, in-your-face move that is right in front of the spectator that they never see because of perfect misdirection to them watching a face up card. Touche', Ben Train! Even with the sleights required, that move is why this Triumph earned 4 stars.
Even though Ben independently came up with what is now Syd's approach to triumph, it's nice to see that Syd allows Ben to teach his updated handling. Ben does a great job with teaching it; from the history to the method itself.
The handling itself looks very fair, but I do feel Vernon's original method still has a key element that this handling doesn't quite have. Regardless, respect to Syd and Ben as it is a very nice handling. I did like how Ben would share his thinking and reasoning for certain touches in the handling, and did particularly like his preferred way of revealing the selected card.
Overall, worth looking into for triumph-lovers.
This triumph is so good looking and so fair! if you are doing this kind of old school magic and looking for a triumph I would recommend this one! The only one negative I have about this is that its all on the table, well of course it is nice if that is the style you like, but personally I would chose to do Dani Daortiz's Open Triumph!
