The New Book By

Pit Hartling


High in the mountains, cards behave in mysterious ways. Three cards. Three free selections. Three perfect echoes.


Catch Me If You Can

It‘s sleight of hand vs. test conditions in this impossible two-deck sandwich routine.


The Poker Formulas

Deal any poker hand to any number of players. A Full, Threes over Jacks for nine players? You got it. (No math or memory required).


Close Encounters

Same cards from different decks like to meet up and hang out. A best-buddy triple coincidence.



An incredible »impossible location« using a shuffled stack (!) (Oh, and it’s funny, too!)


The Core

Find a thought-of card and see why a deck is like a piece of fruit. Also: How to peel a deck!


Thought Exchange

Why do all the work alone? This time you find their thought-of card – and they find yours!



A gambling demonstration for people who don’t play cards: Duplicate random hands from a shuffled (!) deck.

A wide range of original effects, plots and

methods for the memorized deck (of the twenty-one routines,

three require the Tamariz Stack)...

A Collection of

Memorized Deck Magic

In Order To Amaze

Just like that!

»Teach me a trick!« You do, they succeed - and they have no idea how they did it!


Four Way Stop

A slow-motion quadruple stop trick. Not so easy, but Oh. So. Fair.


Top of the Heaps

Four random packets. A freely named four-of-a-kind. And for once, the laying-on of hands really works!


Impossible Bet

Four packets change into a Royal Flush? In one second, with one hand, without looking? Yep.


The Illusionist

Cut to a freely named four-of-a-kind – that was actually in your pocket the whole time!



A triple back and forth change of random cards into a named quartet. Highly visual (and rumoured to get screams!)


Fairy Tale Poker

The enchanted deck that will grant your spectators’ wishes! (Talking frog not included).


The Right Kind of Wrong

Sometimes dead wrong is exactly right - if only seen from another deck!


»Don't let the subtitle ›A Collection of Memorized-Deck Magic‹ fool you: this book is of tremendous value to anyone who's interested in clever, artful card magic - regardless of whether or not you ever use a memorized deck«

— Simon Aronson


»In the first years after ›Mnemonica‹ there were many contributions in form of ideas and tricks by many magicians, but without a doubt, the most coherent and creative corpus, the most distinct and profound work were the effects created and published by Pit.«

— Juan Tamariz
