Although he is best known for his wild looking and difficult card magic, he is also passionate about mathematical principles that he deviously hides in card routines. Some of his favorite, easy and self-working card magic is performed and explained on this DVD.
Routines performed and explained:
Fractured Logic: A demonstration of how to turn your hand palm down without turning your wrist... which ends with a bone crunching gag.
Rain Man: After a spectator mixes the cards in a face up and face down condition you predict how many will be face down, how many of them will be red, and the values of the black cards.
4 Aces Squared: Sixteen cards are laid on the table in a four by four grid and the spectator decides how the cards are mixed. At the end the sixteen cards are spread showing that the four aces are the only face up cards. Includes many variations and handlings.
$26,000 Bet: A spectator shuffles the deck and as the deck is dealt into two piles he decides where each card will go. Once the two random piles are assembled a bet is made on whether the top two cards are going to match in color, this is repeated until the cards run out. The spectator loses every single bet. Includes a red/black variation.
Stolen Cards: Lennart's very popular self-working routine where he shows his collection of the marked playing cards he stole from card games around the world. Each card has a different back design. Two of the cards are placed face up by the spectator into different parts of the deck and upon spreading the deck face down and removing the cards next to the face up cards they are found to match. Both on the faces and on the backs. For an amazing extra ending all the cards are shown to have identical faces. Everything is examinable at the end. You are also taught how to make your own Stolen Cards Deck.
Eye Of Stonehenge: A spectator is taught a playing card ritual to follow as she selects a card and looses it in the deck. Her lost card is now impossibly found using another ritual.
Dragon's Pearl: A spectator cuts the deck in half and shuffles the two halves together. The shuffled deck is now used for a series of coincidences and patterns where the colors of the cards and the suites are in symmetry.
Even though these routines are easy and take very little effort to perform they are all constructed to fool and entertain any audience.
Running time: Approximately 2 hours.
