Live and Let Dai by Robert Ramirez - Trick
Effect: You ask the spectator to simply NAME A CARD. You then shuffle face up into face down cards, like in the classic Triumph trick. BUT in this version you square up the deck, and re-spread the cards face up to REALLY show there are face up cards mixed with face down cards. Making a complete mess.
With no moves, you square and spread the deck a 2nd time and the ENTIRE FACE UP DECK has corrected itself except for one face down card... of course, the named card!! If can even be signed!!
This is an updated version of the classic Triumph routine by Dai Vernon. You can perform Live and Let Dai directly after the classic, or perform Live and Let Dai as a standalone piece!
For the FIRST TIME EVER, you get specially printed cards by the USPCC that work with almost ANY deck of cards! Bicycle, Tally Ho, Bee, Dragon Back, Elites, Turners and even Phoenix decks (in any color) are perfect for Live and Let Dai.
Works for strolling magic, close-up magic and even in Parlor settings! You can even perform this in an Aston Martin. This was a HIT at Magic Live 2018!
Comes with a FULL color booklet (yes, you'll have to READ).
If you can rifle shuffle, you can do this routine!
Easy to do and resets in less than 30 seconds!
"A perfect mystery. A classic plot, and a brilliant solution. And it's a perfect, perfect, perfect mystery!"

"This fooled me... twice. I tried to convince Robert NOT to release this. It's too good and too clean."
