If James Bond were to perform a close-up magic trick with cards, before saving the world, this would be the one!

Effect: You ask the spectator to simply NAME A CARD. You then shuffle face up into face down cards, like in the classic Triumph trick. BUT in this version you square up the deck, and re-spread the cards face up to REALLY show there are face up cards mixed with face down cards. Making a complete mess.

With no moves, you square and spread the deck a 2nd time and the ENTIRE FACE UP DECK has corrected itself except for one face down card... of course, the named card!! If can even be signed!!

This is an updated version of the classic Triumph routine by Dai Vernon. You can perform Live and Let Dai directly after the classic, or perform Live and Let Dai as a standalone piece!

For the FIRST TIME EVER, you get specially printed cards by the USPCC that work with almost ANY deck of cards! Bicycle, Tally Ho, Bee, Dragon Back, Elites, Turners and even Phoenix decks (in any color) are perfect for Live and Let Dai.

Works for strolling magic, close-up magic and even in Parlor settings! You can even perform this in an Aston Martin. This was a HIT at Magic Live 2018!

Comes with a FULL color booklet (yes, you'll have to READ).

If you can rifle shuffle, you can do this routine!

Easy to do and resets in less than 30 seconds!

"A perfect mystery. A classic plot, and a brilliant solution. And it's a perfect, perfect, perfect mystery!"

  • Jim Steinmeyer

"This is as clean a Triumph as I've ever seen. And it's easy! Magicians are gonna love this."

  • John Lovick

"This fooled me... twice. I tried to convince Robert NOT to release this. It's too good and too clean."

  • Brent Geris

First off, it’s not just any named card. I figured when it states that they just name a card, that maybe the spectator gets to freely name ANY card, maybe even their favorite but that’s not the case. They can name any card that’s in a selection of half the deck. So out of 26 cards that they can see is what they can name. I feel like there was emphasis put on the NAMED card so there’s that. It’s a decent effect , but I feel like this was maybe rushed to put on the market before it was completely finished. I like the instructions, they are clear and easy to read, however they have a couple punctuation and spelling errors. The effect is pretty simple to do, so no real sleight of hand. And the ending is pretty cool where you simply snap and the cards right themselves. There is however one move involved that I really don’t like, and I think most people would look at and notice right away The couple people I showed said it looked odd. It’s a good effect and for 20 bucks I think it’s not a bad price for what you get. Good trick but this isn’t THE triumph.
