Who doesn’t like a good ace trick? Well, okay, some experienced magicians might not. Why? Because most magicians need another ace trick like they need a pet rock. But some ace tricks are better than others, and some incorporate secret moves that are more fun to practice during a routine than when practicing individually. Enter my four-ace routine: Swing-Cut Aces, the raw moves of which I published in the October 1998 issue of MUM magazine under the title “False Kick Cut.”
I’ve just uploaded a video tutorial of the routine for my Patreon patrons, but you can watch the public version to see what the trick looks like. And if you’re already a skilled magician, you might be able to figure out what I’m doing before you check out that issue of MUM.
In addition to learning the main moves used in this ace routine, and of course the routine itself, patrons will learn how to do two really useful card cuts by Paul Rosini and Harry Lorayne, with my original twists on each. Even if you’re not a patron, I recommend watching the routine’s performance either directly on the Interval Magic YouTube channel or in the embedded video below. Happy aces, all!
