Magic download (video) by Karl Hein ($10.00)

The Truffle Shuffle 2.0 is Karl Hein's development of Derek Delgaudio's sensational Truffle Shuffle.

This is, in our opinion, the best in-the-hands false riffle shuffle in existence. While it might look like a normal shuffle, it is in fact completely false. It does not disturb the order of the cards at all.

So, what makes this version better than other in-the-hands false shuffles? In short, all of the small subtleties. Karl has devised a method which makes it look like one half the deck is being legitimately shuffled into the other. In fact, the clever workings mean that the two halves always stay separate. This is a reliable, deceptive and convincing false shuffle that you will e able to incorporate into any of your card routines.

In this download, Karl teaches you the mechanics of the shuffle in terrific detail. The over the shoulder, close-up angle makes the learning experience excellent. It will take some practice as the move is not easy, but if you are prepared to put in the time, you will end up with a false shuffle that you will use forever.

Note: The Truffle Shuffle 2.0 has been released with the gracious permission of Derek Delgaudio.

Running time: Approximately 5 minutes

    JD asks: Is this a full explanation I detail of the Truffle Shuffle or does it assume you have mastered the original Truffle Shuffle and is merely a set of refinements? 5 minutes seems very short.

    • 1. Tony answers: I agreed! it's not easy but don't have too many things to do so I think 5 mins is enough

    Neal asks: Can this shuffle be used in a Triumph type routine, I.e, face up face down like a Zarrow or Shank?

    • 1. Tony answers: You can use this shuffle for the triumph plot, but I don't think it's perfect shuffle for triumph as the spectator won't see the face-up and face-down cards

Customer reviews for Truffle Shuffle 2.0



This is the best in-the-hands false riffle shuffle I know of. I've been doing it for a few years but downloaded this video anyway, if only to archive Karl's personal touches. I was not disappointed. This is a beautifully made, highly detailed video with no wasted jibber-jabber. One tip: when learning this shuffle as presented here, I simply couldn't do it. Once I reversed the hands — springing the cards from the right hand to the left — everything fell into place. Oh, and I'm right-handed.



After practicing the move for a week I decided to write this review. First off I really loved the format of this instructional video. As another reviewer stated that people who like to read magic books would probably like this video, and I happen to be one of them so that is probably why I like this format. Basically there are written instructions as he demonstrates the shuffle from different points of views. I found it helpful that at times they highlighted areas of the hands and cards to better understand the handling.

The shuffle itself is very knacky. I haven’t perfected it yet, but I’m close and it does look very deceptive. Overall I liked the video really look forward to adding this shuffle to my repertoire.



I really enjoyed this download and think Karl's development over the Truffle shuffle is pretty good.
Once I saw that subtlety, I was like .. Ohhh nice!
The video format is also OK. I think there is no need for more than 5 minutes in the video. Especially if you already know the truffle shuffle. As others mentioned, it is like learning from a book but better, because you get to see the action.



After 12hrs of practice this still seems miles away from me.
I am a pretty proficient card handler, with 20 yrs experience, but bugger me, the separation of the cards is near impossible at this 12hr stage.
In the video it looks easy, with the cards just seemingly springing themselves apart.
I have watched and re-watched the tutorial but I cant get the cards to spring themselves separate.
They usual just spring all over the floor.
Difficulty rate 9 out of 10.
I have a feeling a lot of people wouldn't be able to get the "nack" of this and will just give up.
I will keep persisting to see if I can get there.



You need to know that Karl decided to teach this using an instrumental soundtrack with text. He doesn’t say one word.

If you are used to learning magic from books, this may not be a huge deal. I found it very unappealing. Is it taught in terrific detail? Not in my opinion. I imagine that most (including myself) will find it somewhat challenging to learn this shuffle from this video.
