Card College 1&2 Personal Instruction Lesson 23: False Cuts 2


Card College is considered by many to be the most important and influential work on sleight-of-hand card magic for the beginner and the expert. With these videos the author personally coaches you. It is like taking one-to-one lessons!

This is Lesson 23 of the Card College 1&2 – Personal Instruction video course in card magic.

Every shuffle must be followed by a cut in order to convince an audience that the cards are in a haphazard order. This lesson teaches you different ways of false cutting a deck on the table. These are straight cuts as well as multiple cuts, also called running cuts, that simulate the way a real-world dealer would cut a deck after a shuffle, typically a Riffle Shuffle. Once everyone believes that the deck has been honestly shuffled and cut you are ready to embark on some of the most astonishing card tricks. The detailed discussion will convey to you all the information needed to execute these cuts – some easy, some challenging – expertly.
