Hummer's Poker Chip Mystery by Bob Hummer (revised & expanded edition)Hummer's Poker Chip Mystery
by Bob Hummer

An incredible mental magic miracle that even fools magicians. Nothing to reset. Can be repeated, leaving no clue.

Six poker chips, bearing the numbers 0 to ten are examined and mixed by a spectator. The spectator lays them on a table with no interference from the mentalist.

While the performer's back is turned, the spectator turns over some chips. Three more are turned over and covered with a playing card, business card, or beer coaster.

The performer turns around and, with no false moves or sculduggery, announces the total of the chips beneath the cards. It's that clean. And, surprisingly, it can be instantly repeated, with a different result.

Just the thing for parties, get-togethers, and bars, while waiting for other guests to arrive. Carry it with you, always ready to perform. No magnets, mirrors, external gimmicks, or palming. No assistants or stooges. And, get this: you don't touch the chips again, once you hand them to the spectator at the start of the routine.

Only in this revised and enlarged edition do you also get several additions and afterthoughts, added illustrations, and other bonus contents to get the absolute most from this brilliant and stunning effect.

"Extremely puzzling. No angles." --John Braun, Linking Ring review

"Will really baffle the wisest, including magicians." --Mitchell Kanter

"A really fine item. Can be repeated indefinitely and the last presentation leaves the spectator as puzzled as the first showing." --Lloyd E. Jones

PDF format. Revised and expanded version of the 1941 Berland edition. Includes important edits and updates, as well as five new chapters. 14 pages + supplement. ($6 US)
