Unfortunately the first trick we learned at magic camp when I was nine was the arm one.
Biggest damn mistake of my life.

If you cut the deck on the middle and put the second part on top you don`t really change the order of the deck. You just change the starting card. For instance if you have A23456789 and cut between the five and six and put the bottom part on top the order will be 6789A2345. Cut that again wherever you want, let`s say between 2 and 3: 3456789A2. And again between 7 and 8: 89A234567 and so on... He did a very nice job with the story though. I do a story about 4 countries (aces) with each king, queen, lover (jack) etc...

I think the most amazing part of these tricks is how smoothly they execute them. One little blip in dialogue could ruin the whole mesmerizing feel.

Skillz.

The arm trick is easy.. at exactly 1.10 in the video when he say "just clench ya fists mate` he spins his left arm completely around. It`s no coincidence that camera also picks this moment to zoom out

@Kaidb--no, cutting does not change the sequence--take a fresh deck and cut it 100 times, then cut once more so the Ace of Spades is in front again--the sequence has not been changed.

@Ohthedrama--no it`s not hard--he used two simple moves, the false riffle shuffle and a one-hand pass--both of which can be observed in the video. He could have made it even simpler by using a $4 "stripper deck" to facilitate both. I could teach you how to do both moves using one of those in about 10 minutes. The hardest part was prearranging the deck before hand, and remembering the ridiculously contrived story.

To all--Jean Hugard`s "Encyclopedia of Card Tricks" (Dover Publications, 1937) has an entire chapter on effects like this. In particular, this is a version of "The Adventures of Diamond Jack" (page 242-243).

vapor13, thanks for the heads up. FYI, it`s called a sleight of hand.

You`ll notice when he cuts the deck he puts the top half back on top. Impressive slight of hand live but YouTube gives away some secrets.

I always love it when videos like this come up and people clamor to tell you how it`s done and prove to you it`s not magic. IT`S NOT MAGIC!! It`s a trick. It`s an illusion. Of course there is a method. Good for you in knowing the method. It`s not about knowing how he did it, it all about the fact that what he did is pretty damn hard.

@doug yes the deck is stacked and he knows their specific order but in all reality the cutting the deck does change the order, it puts several of the top cards on the bottom. the key to this trick is that every time he finishes a sentence he picks up the deck and cuts it between two and four times, and looks at the bottom of the cut. In that way by the end of the speech he knows exactly what he`s got.

The deck is stacked. Then you can watch him do the false riffle shuffle. Cutting cards does not change the sequence no matter how many times it`s done. When the spectators are done cutting he cuts the deck one more time himself to put the original card back on top, again making the deck in the same order that it was (you can see him do this). He then just tells a story that match the order of the cards as they were when you first saw the deck. Before anybody tells me I`m wrong, there are two choices--what I`m saying is correct, or he is truly magical.
