Trick idea

  1. I have an idea for an effect where the spectator names a card and in my pocket is the card they named.
    I have a couple of preferences.
    1. Works nearly all the time or all the time.
    2. The spectator goes into the pocket and take their named card out.
    3. It is or seems like a freely named card.
    If anybody has any ideas on techniques for me to look into pm me.
    Otherwise if this effect is already out there just put it below.
  2. This is more of a card plot that a lot of people have put their own spin on. Blake Vogt has the Invisible Card, Joshua Jay has Inferno, and Rick Lax has Masterpiece. I'm sure there are other resources as well.

  4. Advocate won't allow the volunteer to reach into the pocket unless extra steps are taken, but will fulfill all other criteria.

    There's probably more than a dozen ways to make it seem like the OP's exact criteria are being met. Personally I'd probably use equivoque and multiple outs.

  5. There are definitely a ton of ways to do it.

    The way Madison teaches it in the video, the card is about 3/4ths of the way out of the pocket. I can't see a spectator fully putting their hand into a strangers pocket when they can easily grab the corner of the card and pull it out. And of course, you can always cop it and put it into your back pocket, which is what I would do.
  6. Thanks. I'll have a good look at those!
  7. I got the advocate and its such a good trick I use it for all sorts. I just need somthing totally clean,a and I do use it to achive this effect.
  8. The advocate, when done right, is 100% clean.
  9. Agree. You can have it sticking up a little more.

  10. I forget the name of the effect and who it is by, but basically you place the entire deck in your pocket and they reach in and take out the chosen card. Free choice (they can grab any card) and it works 100% of the time. You will need to force the card but it is super fair. It fooled me then i felt stupid once i learned the method....
