Heritage by Daniel Madison
Cheat without ever touching the deck.
A cheating/gambling demonstration where you never touch the deck throughout the whole routine.
Four playing cards are brought out of the performer’s pocket and introduced as a partial poker hand - that can only be made a winning hand with ONE specific card from the deck.
The spectator is asked to shuffle the deck, and then deal a single card to the performer. The performer show the four cards in his hand to be an inside straight flush - and as the spectator turns over the single card they dealt - it's is incredibly the only one in the deck that could have completed the hand.
Cheating is usually about skill, how well the performer manipulates a deck of playing cards. It’s a demonstration of dexterity and handling, rather than a moment of the impossible. Heritage changes that.
In half an hour of teaching, Daniel Madison discusses the handling, psychology and presentations of this effect, including when and how to take this single effect into a two-phase routine (as seen in the trailer).
