Hey, this is my first real tutorial video on 5min.com. I am going to teach you guys one of the probably most basic tricks in magic and this will be one of the first tricks that you might no matter where you go to find it because it is going to look so simple but to get it right you have to do this. You take the top card, it is seven of clubs, this where we are going to need a little of a back, snap and the card comes back to the top.
I flashed the card by accident there. So what you are going to do to do this trick, you are going to get a pinkie work under the second card of the top and I want you to be doing here the double lift which means you are not taking the top card but you are actually taking the second card. So if I want to show you the seven, that is not really the top card because what the trick is going to do is, I start the trick over so cut that and start to trick over and I say okay.
Now, I can just count down two cards, then I would show you the six which is really the same card and I place what is not really the six but it is actually a queen in the middle of the deck and the six comes back on top, magic. But of course the audience would not know that the queen actually went in the middle of the deck not six. So what you can do is I am going to count down two cards and not to get more like here I keep getting two because I have just tell it for so long and just do that but when you just heard enough, you just want to do double lift which is this. you are going to get a break, you got to take two cards off the top but your hand just take two cards alright and you are going to do a break.
What break is when you out your pinkie and then you are going to cut it like that, your pinkie is just going to hold like that and if you hold like this it just looks like a regular deck and you just keep your pinkie break and I know you are ready to do it.
You just pick up the break and we will declare it like that so you have to clean which is really the second card just like that. The card is not really the queen like it was in the middle, the six sign is right there in the middle which is not the queen but a little miss of wind or snap, the queen comes back to the top of the deck and that is part of the ambitious card routine, have fun with it.
