Rafael Benatar performs and explains more of the elegant card routines that he uses to earn a living with as he appears at parties, tradeshows and nightclubs all over Europe, South America and the United States. In addition to the excellent card magic the DVD includes a section on advanced double-card handling techniques where you will learn how to flawlessly handle, show, replace and table double-cards.
Routines performed and explained:
The Clark Kent Card Change: An indifferent card visually changes into the spectator’s selected card as you blow on it.
69: A six turns into a selected nine while in full view. The selected card is then shown to be a joker.
Neither & Also: Two selected cards are found in an offbeat and visual manner.
A Perfect 10: Two cards are produced as the selection but are wrong. When the pips of the two cards are added they total the selection’s value. The two cards visually melt into the selection.
The Rhythm Twins: A new handling for Brother John Hamman’s classic plot about twin Kings who married twin Queens.
The Unambitious Magician: A parody geared toward magicians where obvious sleights are used to cancel each other.
Countdown: A startling assembly where Kings vanish from their packets one at a time and appear in a leader packet. As a surprise finale all four Kings appear in an unexpected place.
Right Between The Eyes: A card routine for the stage in which you ascertain the name of a selected card by reading the hand of a lady who picked it and then quickly pull it out of the shuffled deck from the pocket of a gentleman. Then, to everyone’s astonishment, the gentleman performs the trick himself without knowing how.
Professional Oil and Water Routine: Ascanio’s Oil and Water smoothly blended with Roy Walton’s Oil and Queens to form a very strong three-phase routine.
Double-Card Handling Techniques: Rafael Benatar is a master of double card handling and he spends some time explaining all the fine points of natural double turnovers as well as how to handle, replace and table double cards.
