At the Table by Neal EliasAt the Table
by Neal Elias

This quality volume contains 13 must-have card presentations and sleights, plus a no-sleight effect for the close-up entertainer.

While not self-working, most rely on just one or two sleights. Easy-to-follow illustrations make the effects easy to understand and master.

Neal Elias was a confidant of Ed Marlo, Lin Searles, and other world class card experts. He also spent time as a demonstrator for George Snyder's magic shop in Cleveland, Ohio. No doubt several of Neal's creations will, after you read this book, find a place in your own routine.

Here's what's included:

  • Foreword

  • A Reverse Sleight

  • On the Card to the Pocket

  • Turnover Switch

  • A Truly Fan-cy Cut

  • One-Hand Center Cut

  • Card from Center

  • Torn Corner Card Trick

  • A Spelling Change

  • Tell Ya What I'm Gonna Do — A poker demonstration where the spectator chooses which seat gets which poker hand before the deal!

  • Screwy Square

  • We Both Spell

  • Well, That's it!
