  • Coins across - an un gimmicked coins across routine
  • Coincidence - coins switch places in the spectators hands
  • Virginia city shuffle - a monte type routine
  • Tricky wallet - a no palming signed card to wallet effect
  • My four ace routine - a combination of 3 effects guaranteed to get reactions
  • Professors nightmare - a 3 rope routine
  • Trapped - a routine involving a deck of cards, an animal trap and a very different finale
  • Cups and balls - the cup and ball routine that I have been using for over 17 years
  • Signed bill in kiwi - can be done in short sleeves and surrounded
  • These are all tricks that I have been entertaining audiences with for over 25 years and get great reactions! The routines are designed to focus on the presentation and not the method - which, I believe, is why they get such a good reaction.
