GIacomo Bertini: "Cylinder & Chips"
This is his easy version of the famous coin routine.You can see this routine in his book, "Giacomo Bertini's System for amazement" written by Stephen Minch. Giacomo uses poker chips instead of coins and his own gimmick, which you can buy from him. He created this routine for professional use, such as when working at event dinners, and in any difficult situation, anywhere. The effect is amazing, like the classical version, but in this case the routine is really easy to perform, and the hands are really empty, in front of the spectators. Very beautiful routine for standup workers. Beginner level
DARYL: "The Manly Matrix"
This is a wonderful version of the classic matrix effect - four coins and four cards. Each coin starts under one card in 4 different places. Eventually all coins assemble magically one by one under one card. The description includes a beautiful display move which allows you to show a card in one hand while you hide a coin in the same.
