Jason Ladanye's approach to magic is simple - not about complicated sleight of hand. Jason looks for original plots and uses time-tested well-known sleights to achieve miracles for laymen. While Jason Ladanye will be teaching a few effects from his last hit book, Confident Deceptions, most of the effects taught on this At the Table Lecture will come from Jason's upcoming book, Game Changer. This means you have the opportunity to be the first to learn a ton of new hard hitting and unpublished material. These effects are strong, but also incredibly practical and meaningful. Jason teaches how to start clean and end clean with a regular deck of cards and perform magic that spectators will remember forever.
Here are the effects that Jason will be teaching:
Nick of Time - A race against the clock to locate 8 cards in 60 seconds. This one is a real crowd pleaser. It keeps the audience in suspense literally to the last second. This uses regular deck and can be done anytime and anywhere. This is one of the strongest effects in Jason's next book.
Ladanye's ACAAN - The performer gives a stunning demonstration of his ability to shuffle track cards. He follows the position of a selection as it changes during the shuffles and cuts. A moment later the performer causes any card to move to any position in the deck with no false moves. A laymen walks away from this effect thinking you're a serious threat at the card table.
The Big Stack - Here's an amazing and entertaining gambling routine. Jason stacks Queens, Kings, and Aces in just two shuffles. This gambling routine plays like a magic trick. The spectators can know nothing about poker and still find this routine incredibly fascinating. Wait until you see the reactions.
Game Changer - You play a simple two-card game against the spectator. With money on the line, you end up with your back against the wall. The audience knows you can not win this game, until you cheat in the most unexpected way possible.
Forging Ahead - There are plenty of signature transfer effects out there. Jason's contribution to this classic plot is to move a spectator's initials from the FACE of one card, to the FACE of another. This is one of the strongest tricks in his book, Confident Deceptions, and one of the easiest to do!
Lucky Charms - This is an effect that spectators just can't comprehend. A folded card in view from the beginning ends up being the spectator's signed selection. The best part is that they never see the ending coming.
In addition to teaching all of the mechanics to the effects, Jason will talk shop about effect construction, audience management, misdirection, and how to maximize the impact of every trick. This is not an At The Table Lecture you'll want to miss.
