In this trick, the performer introduces two decks of cards, one red and one blue. After shuffling his deck, a spectator is asked to name any card. The performer takes the two red kings from his pack and drops them on top of the spectators deck. Instantly and without the performer even touching the spectator’s cards the freely named selection appears in between the kings!
The performer offers to do it again, only this time the spectator removes their red kings and drops them on top of the performer’s deck. Miraculously a card appears in between them!
For a kicker finale, the spectator’s selection disappears from the performer’s deck and appears in the middle of the deck they have been in control of the entire time!
In 2006, at the age of 23, Helder Guimarães became the youngest ever World Champion of Card Magic. He was awarded the title after his performance in a triennial competition, which left both the judging panel and over a thousand other performers utterly baffled. Since then, using his background in acting and theater, he created and performed his one-man shows all over the world.
