The Abracadabra Trick by Dani DaOrtiz (Semi-Automatic Weapons Project Chapter 6)
The Abracadabra Trick
Semi-Automatic Weapons Chapter 6:
Dani DaOrtiz shares with your an amazingly direct card location technique that is a real reputation maker. The spectator cuts a packet off the top of the pack, shuffles it, removes a card, and places the rest of the packet back on the deck. The card is remembered and goes back on top of the deck. A packet is taken off the bottom of the deck, shuffled, and put on top of the deck. The deck is cut again, and the card is hopelessly lost in the deck. The spectator thinks of any magic word they want and then spells their word, turning over a card for each letter in their magic word. Impossibly, the card they spell to is exactly their card. Dani is joined by some of his closest friends and students for a session on the incredible principles at play in this Semi-Automatic Miracle.
This lesson, just under an hour in length, will introduce you to new concepts using key cards in wild new ways. The principles involved will give you the ability to know where selected cards are under chaotic conditions. Key takeaways for the student include:
The Face Up Key Card

In addition to the principle, you’ll learn some of Dani’s preferred ways to reverse a card in the deck.
