Magic download (video) by Juan Tamariz ($9.60)
Tweezers, a dual phased two-card-monte routine from Juan Tamariz, is undoubtedly one of the best monte routines you can perform. The routine is designed for absolute fairness — the magician removes two black tens to act as “tweezers,” while a spectator freely selects an Ace and court-card of contrasting color. What happens next is a slow-paced swindle that belongs in every performer’s repertoire.
The relaxed manner and presentational style of Tamariz is what makes this piece so special. Tweezers offers a rare opportunity to sit down with arguably the greatest living magician and improve your magic ten-fold.

Customer reviews for Tweezers
This is a nice balance of presentation and sleights. I really like using this in my set. I am a big fan of his work and I was not disappointed at all. I have always found montes to be boring. But I love every part of this.
You can tell a true master from how each detail is important. More than the trick itself, which is well explained, are the principals of performing which Juan gives in this video. Principals that I am sure if you begin to apply to your routines will drastically change the way you perform.
Tweezers by Juan Tamariz is a joyful 3 card monte routine with just two cards -- that you never touch. Routine avoids the spectator being fooled by selecting the incorrect card. Video instructions are clear and includes some of the theory behind the two cards switching places.
this is a great trick!
Every detail in this trick is perfect. I love the subtleties that he teaches in the tutorial. Although you are paying for the method, you also get a mini-lesson in magic theory. What he teaches you here are some pointers on how to bring your routines to the next level. This is also a great monte in general with an interesting basis.
Great card magic, although prior i had worked out the first phase on how too, the second phase and the method was very unexpected on how too, plus he shows a couple of different suggestions and outs at the end, which is a nice bonus thats worth knowing.
