Hmmm, I’ve never been to Alaska so this could be a kosher poker game… but maybe not!

A great trick though from master card magician Ricky Jay.

This is some pretty good close-up magic with coins from Dan Gifford, a magician in the UK.

The sticky coin bit with the copper coins at 33 seconds is pretty cool. How does he do that?!

Very clean and impressive demonstration of card control from  ‘Ricky Jay and his 52 Assistants’ show.

You wouldn’t want to play cards with this guy.

Simon Drake’s take on this classic magical illusion.

Much better than the Derren Browne version from a couple of years ago.

Another excerpt from ‘Ricky Jay and his 52 Assistants’.

A bit of a dodgy title for this clip and not much magic, but entertaining none the less.

This interview with UK magician Dan Gifford does include some magic as well as some nonesense about ‘the meaning of magic’.

at about 23 seconds there is crazy man’s handcuffs and at 1.45 what looks like Vernon’ removing a pip.

This version of chicago opener was showcased on the Times Online video of the day.

Not a bad version. Unfortunately, the article also exposes the method. It’s only a problem because this is a pretty good trick – too good for everybody to find out about!
