You will learn:
All Backs - A deck of cards is shown which, Roberto explains, is a "seconds" deck - sold because it has a defect. It is shown to have backs on both sides but Roberto insists that he can still do a trick with it. Pulling out four double backed cards, he removes the 'aces' but sure enough, no one is impressed. With one wave of the hand, the deck in Roberto's hand becomes printed - with faces and backs - and so do the cards on the table. Taking a pen, Roberto crosses out "seconds" and writes "firsts"
Double Swap - Roberto explains that he mustn't touch the selected cards so uses the aces to pincer them out of the deck. Then the red aces trap two cards. Bizarrely, they are not the selections but the two black aces! The selections are found on the table where the black aces should have been from the beginning!
1002nd Aces - A quick and hard-hitting ace assembly that requires no gaffs!
