Magic download (video) by Joshua Jay ($12.00)

This is a Triumph with a HUGE surprise ending, and one that nobody sees coming. Based on John Bannon's seminal "Play It Straight" effect, this version allows you to spread the cards to cause only a spectator's selection to turn face up. But that you instantly respread the deck (no moves) to show that all the cards of a matching suit also turned face up.

It's impossible and unexpected, yet a logical climax to a Triumph routine. Joshua Jay teaches you every step in great detail, and the best part is that you'll be able to incorporate this routine into your repertoire almost immediately. Not at all difficult to do!

Running time: 10 minutes, 31 seconds.

As part of our Community Captions project, the explanation video for this download has optional English subtitles.

  • Michael asks: Is the Faro shuffle mandatory to perform this, or will another shuffle work?

    • 1. Mustafa answers: You need a faro-type shuffle, i.e. cards need to be interlaced as perfectly as possible. The faro is a complex move, i.e. have small nuances to work on, but what helped me learn it are the great routines that you can do with it. My advise is, if you want to learn the faro, find a routine that inspires you and get to work.

Customer reviews for Trumped Triumph



If you are unfamiliar with Josh's concealment in this effect then you are doing yourself a disservice. You will add this move to routines you already do to make them stronger, and you will come up with new routines that will take advantage of this cleverness.

In my opinion, for something you will use so often, the download is a steal.



Very good routine. Just a thought...If you use a stripper deck, after all the cards
of the suit are show, you can thoroughly shuffle (or have the spectator shuffle) and then strip out the 13 suited cards.



This routine & the applications of the teachings within are invaluable, anyone serious about card magic should definitely purchase Trumped Triumph - I use this ALL the time.



A great peice off card magic, the video covers two great variations of this, its
