Alpha2Omega by Stephen Tucker
"Superb. The most baffling and incredible packet trick I've seen in years!" -Jerry Sadowitz
Stephen Tucker's 'Omega' has long been hailed as one of the greatest packet tricks ever created. Simple to do, fully examinable and devastatingly impressive, it will knock your spectators for six!
So what is Alpha2Omega?
You have two sets of four of a kind (let's say, two sets of Aces). One set is tabled. One set is placed behind your back. You have ANY Ace named. Seconds later, this ace is face down, in the set behind your back, and... it has a different colored back to the other three! You now rub their freely named Ace on your sleeve and its face completely vanishes!
THESE FOUR CARDS ARE NOW EXAMINABLE!
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. Now, you spread the tabled set of face down Aces (that have been in full view throughout) and their named Ace is face up!
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. now someone removes the face up Ace and it has a different colored back to the other three!
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. the shell-shocked spectator flips over the three remaining face down Aces only to discover that they are all BLANK! THEIR NAMED CARD WAS THE ONLY ONE THEY COULD HAVE CHOSEN!
Now for the amazing bit - they can name ANY Ace! (It can be different every time you perform)
