Hold 'Em Magic Book
Hold 'Em Magic Book
Every magician, everywhere in the world, comes to the same realization: if you do card work you MUST know something about Texas Hold 'Em. Many magicians develop entire routines (careers even) around the theme of gambling. Other magicians require one or two "killer" effects that deal with the world's most popular card game.
In a perfect world, we would assemble all the greatest thinkers in gambling magic, each one offering an astounding miracle involving Texas Hold 'Em. That's exactly what we have done.
Authored by Tom Frame, this collection is packed with exceptional selections from the greatest thinkers in our field: Michael Weber, R. Paul Wilson, Jason England, John Bannon, Bob Farmer, Sal Piacente, and many, many more. Some will come away with an entirely new repertoire of Texas Hold 'Em magic. Others will finally fulfill that essential need to know a few DIABOLICAL tricks about a game our audiences are obsessed with.
There's even an added bonus: we're including a special, exclusive gimmick for a brand new Michael Weber effect.

This book has potential but most of the effects are only appealing to Poker Player, not to much to non-players
I bought this as a gift for a magician who loves poker. All the effects included are poker related. Many different magicians have contributed one or more routines, so the material is very strong, and reflects a wide range of magicians. The presentation is also excellent - it's a high quality hard cover book (plus dust cover) with nice photos and great graphic design. From other reports and reviews I've read, I know that this book is also well respected in the magic community.
