Darwin Ortiz
by At the Card Table

From Darwin Ortiz's Introduction: "If I had to summarize the material in this book I would have to say that it is professional magic, it is strong magic...The term 'audience-tested' is often used, and sometimes abused, in the literature of magic. The effects in this book have been audience-tested, not over a period of weeks of months, but over years of constant use before paying audiences, the only way one can really come to know an effect."


Darwin Ortiz is a modern master of card magic, and this is the book that put him on the map. Finally back in print, At The Card Table contains two sections: magic routines and gambling routines. Many of the magic routines, such as the Dream Card and Jumping Gemini, have since become modern classics of card magic, and gambling demos like The Ultimate Card Shark are widely considered the best of the genre. This book contains card magic for many skill levels, from beginner-friendly packet tricks to advanced sleight intensive demonstrations. The one thread throughout all of this material is that it is strong, audience-tested, and has stood the test of time

Reviewed by Sean D, 05/13/2020

The dream card is probably the most powerful card to wallet effect I have ever performed. It is stunning in its impact and simplicity. This book transformed my three card monte routine. Darwins take on Mexican poker is transformative. I am still going through the book but this is a must have on your shelf.
