    For All the Card Tricksters out there.



    This amazing card trick was developed by the magician after the terrorist attacks in France. Supposedly, he did this in front of Penn and Teller on TV and they just shook their heads in disbelief. This is truly a must watch.

    A must watch indeed! I watched several times but didn't have a clue as to how he manipulates the cards. Thanks for posting.

    Very simple, an edited video. Watch closely, you can see the subtle pauses.

    It is interesting to watch in slow motion.
    Go to the gear shaped thing in the lower right corner, right click.
    Click "speed" and slow it to 0.25.

    Turn the speed down to as slow as possible and there is still no explanation for this guy.

    That looks like a lot of clever cutting and splicing to me, not "sleight of hand".

    Have you seen this guy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkMbSWwS3FA

    You should have done a little googling about him before you made that statement
    His history, accomplishments, other youtube videos [MIT talk, other performances, his standing in the magicians and card handling world]
    A new documentary about him came out this year. "Cheat em Blind"
    No, No fancy camera work. Just incredible talent. And devotion to his craft.
