### George Washington Prediction

Posted by Maxim888 in Tutorial , Mentalism , CloseUp

George Washington... a psychic, too?

Effect:

Show your friend a dollar bill and tell her to look at the serial number and to concentrate on just one of the numbers.

Tell her that George Washington wasn't just the first President of the United States, but he was also a psychic!

Ask her what the number was and after she tells you, you show her your prediction - one that was already written on the dollar bill before you began! Carry this one in your wallet. It's a good one to do anytime!

### One in 52 Card Trick Tutorial

Posted by Maxim888 in Tutorial , CloseUp , Card

This is a simple trick too, but use a little care when you handle the cards. Spread a normal deck of cards face-up on the table. Ask someone to point to any card they want.

Pull their chosen card from the spread deck and drop it on the bottom card. Pick up the deck and give it a couple of cuts. Now spread the deck, face down, and your friends see there is just one card with a different color back. You lift that card out and turn it over - that's right, it is their chosen card!

### The Hypnotized Handkerchief Tutorial

Posted by Maxim888 in Tutorial , CloseUp

Hypnotize a handkerchief to move at your command!

REQUIREMENTS: One handkerchief with a hem, one drinking straw

In order to perform this effect you will need to take a drinking straw and flatten it out. This is easier with the old fashioned paper straws, but a plastic straw will do. Be careful not to mangle the straw as you flatten it.

Next, sew the straw into the hem of a handkerchief as shown in Figure 1. Make certain the straw is secured in place so it won't slip down in the hem.

When ready to perform the trick, grasp the corner indicated with an "A" in Figure 1.

Posted by Maxim888 in Tutorial , Card

The following is a deck "stack" that must be set up ahead of time and maintained as you handle the deck. Among other things, by peeking at the bottom card, you can tell what the top card is. This allows you to perform many miracles!!

Start by dividing your deck into suits and into numerical order... Ace (top) to King (bottom).

The suits are set up: Clubs, Hearts, Spades, Diamonds (CHSD) or you may hear this referred to as "CHaSeD"
