Martin A. Nash, who was one the most popular performers to appear at the Magic Castle’s Close-Up showroom, is also considered one of the most entertaining magicians with a deck of cards. But entertainment is only half the story. Martin also created some great magic and techniques.
The two techniques he was most proud of were his Infinity Control and his Tabled Faro Shuffle. He often gave private lessons teaching these techniques and swore his students to secrecy. After keeping the true workings of the techniques and routines secret for many years he agreed to release them on two video tapes that were high priced at the time. Now both videos are combined into one DVD that can truly enhance your card magic.
Infinity Control: This is a very easy method of controlling cards that can be used with a borrowed deck. In addition to the techniques and variations, Martin also performs and teaches the following routines using the Infinity Control: One Card Pullout, Spectator Cuts To Card, Trapped, Infinity Force, and Backfire.
Tabled Faro Shuffle: This is a relatively easy method that simulates a riffle shuffle. In addition to the techniques and variations, Martin also performs and teaches the following routines using it: Celestial Aces, Marked Aces, World’s Fastest Runup, and The Sting.
Bonus Routines: In addition to the above priceless secrets Martin also teaches his, Estimation Aces, New Deck Routine Sequence, and One-Handed Master Ace Cutting.
Additional techniques taught within routines include: Fan Prediction #2, Soft Shuffle, False Cut, Nash Multiple Shift, Up And Down Shuffle, Delayed-Action Center Deal, and much more.
