By ESP Magically name everyone Bridge hand
USE THE OUT OF THIS WORLD DECK TO:

USE THESE DECKS UNSORTED FOR THE TRICKS ABOVE
~ or ~ Use them to perform an endless variety of tricks, with a shuffled deck that normally takes a set-up to perform, including Ambitious Card, Four Ace tricks, and much more!
If you can handle a stripper deck (see example), you can perform every effect listed here!
Most 12-year-olds are able to perform these effects with minimal practice (about one hour, including interruptions)!
In the mid-1970 George Sands was developing an ESP act. After reading the book Magical Ways & Means, by renown magician Al Baker, he mastered Baker's mnemonic approach to memorizing a deck of cards. This method was a chore to learn, requiring him to remember 52 keywords corresponding to each card in a deck. He knew that he needed a simpler approach.
A SIMPLE, NEW METHOD WAS BORN
Instead of memorizing the entire deck of cards, George devised a way to use a stripper" deck (see example) to achieve the same effect. He created an original code to pre-set the deck that was easy to learn and remembers. He could then strip the deck and tell each person by ESP what cards they were holding. Audiences were dumbfounded!
As George performed this new method and perfected the code, he found that the set-up was vulnerable; if one card was reversed in the deck (usually as the volunteer shuffled) or the cards were dropped or fumbled, the entire set-up was destroyed. A better solution was needed.
THE BELLY STRIPPER SOLUTION
After months of experimentation, George developed a unique approach using symmetrical belly stripper cards that was simple and foolproof; no matter how a volunteer shuffled or even dropped the cards, the set-up remained intact. Then at a machine shop, George had custom dies made to produce his "belly stripper" cards and personally supervised each custom deck cut to perfection. Today, a third generation of these cards are now hand-cut, one card at a time, with two paper cutters. One paper cutter cost $4,000. The other, $500.
This routine is so powerful that you will use it to end your show and leave everyone convinced that you really DO read minds!
