Ken Krenzel Close Up Impact by Stephen Minch


i – Introduction (Ross Bertram)
iii – Forward (Minch)
v -
Credo (Krenzel)

3 Chapter 1: Relaxed Miracles
3 Soft Cards: Visual
penetration of one card through another, simple to make gaff. Topological
6 Bust-Out Aces: one-at-a-time production of the 4 aces using the
same gimmick from the previous trick, EZ.
8 Second method: ungimmicked
version of B-O Aces, not so EZ.
10 Thrust and Parry: variation of classic
"U-Find-It". Spec selects card, loses it in pack, then behind his
thrusts a 2nd card, face up, into the deck. Ribbon spread to find the
face up card next to the selection.
Magi doesn't touch deck once it's in the
spec's hands.
12 Double S'Entendre: Two specs, each with her own deck; each
selects and loses a card in her own deck,
then cuts to the other spec's
selection. Simple, and effective.
15 The Haunted Jacket: strange things
happen to a deck when dropped into the magi's jacket pocket. An
version of Krenzel's "Half-Passed Histed" from _NY Magic Symposium, Vol 4._
Clever indeed.
20 The Shifting Sands of Tutankhamen: Clever (but over-long)
dealing/counting puzzle.

25 Chapter 2: A Matched Pair
25 The Matchbook
Dervish: An ordinary book of matches comes to life in your hands, is then
examinable. Eerie.
28 Turn-Tail Match: impromptu; wooden matchstick is pushed
through a tunnel formed from fingers of your hand.
En route, it does a

33 Chapter 3: Pasteboard and Silver
33 An Estranged Exchange:
in-the-hands exchange of card and coin, a la Harris' "Very Strange Exchange"
_Close Up Fantasies Finale_. (Krenzel kicked-thru vanish; Goldin
36 The Hollow Card: vanish/production of coin from single card; uses
same gaff from Soft Cards (p.3)
38 The Coin of Mycroft: Borrowed, marked coin
vanishes, reappears next to spec's selected card – with the
deck in the card

43 Chapter 4: Ace Effects and Other Tricks for the Shelf
Condensed Aces: two handlings of Paul Harris' "Las Vegas Split" – one impromptu,
the other utilizing
gaffed cards and Krenzel's Subterranean Shelf (variant of
Marlo's shelf, closer to Scott's Bug).
49 Subterranean Shelf and Related
Ideas: as a packet switch; in the Curry Open Prediction effect; Joint
spec cuts to mates of two predictions.
52 Krenzel on the
Cavorting Aces: K's handling of the Herrmann Pass and Dr. Daley's plot from
_Stars of Magic_.
57 Passe-Deux Aces: 4-ace production a la "Passe-Passe
Aces" (_Expert Card Technique_), two at a time. Nifty.
59 There and Back
Again: Progressive 4-ace trick + aces instantly return to their starting piles.
Gaffed cards.
64 Penthouse Progression (With a Foreclosure): ungimmicked
version (Benzais cop).

71 Chapter 5: Mental
71 Open and Shut Case:
any-card-at-any-number, clever and feasible, but not simple. Easy to
gimmicked card case helps.
74 Case of the Missing Link: a thought-of
card is found missing from an otherwise normal deck. Card is
produced from
wallet, pocket, whatever. Uses same gimmicked case as previous effect +
memorized deck.
76 Ruse et Noir: 8 card version of Curry's Out of this World
plus thoughts on Fulves' Vector Switch.
80 Milk Run: psychological stop trick
with an out using Max Katz's switch when you miss.
82 Reversed Decision: Spec
thinks of a card he sees in a shuffled, fanned deck. Magi openly reverses
card, which later proves to be the thought-of card. Uses Henry Christ's
spread switch (from Vernon _Inner Secrets_).
85 Naturalized Brainwave: Magi
inserts unseen red back card reversed in a blue deck. Spec names any
which is found to match the odd backed card. Ungimmicked(!)
Thought Bridge: Rubber-banded deck, tossed out, you find the peeked card behind
your back.

95 Chapter 6: Physical
95 Going Up: Ambitious card
98 Bouncer: Ambitious card move for banded deck.
100 Rebound:
Another banded deck ambitious move.
102 The Doppelgänger Deck: Benzais cop
poker routine.

107 Chapter 7: Visual
107 Up She Rises: three
ungimmicked handlings for ACNR (any-card-named-rises). None particularly
113 Protean Rise: a fourth ACNR, this one using the gaffed case from
chapter 5.
114 Cardapult: flourishy revelation – card flies from the
face-down deck, lands face up.
115 Royal Headache: cute amorous story for an
extended version of Krenzel's eerie spin-out (from Card Classics of KK).
Witch's Spit: similar animated card effect, different story (no sexual
120 Inversion Revision: Two-phased version of "Inversion" — face
up card left protruding from face down deck, deck
instantly reverses to
124 The Profoundly Flippant Reverse: (one-handed!) Spectator's
peeked card instantly appears face up on top,
then turned face-down on top,
vanishes to appear face up in center.
127 The Hammock Change: Another
one-handed color change.
128 Two in a Hammock: X card changes to one
selection, then to a second selection, then both vanish.
133 The Organic
Tunnel Change: an away-from-the-deck color change

139 Chapter 8:
139 Tunnel Visions: five-phase extended version of "The Card
148 Tubemogrification: Packet of four queens passed at right angles
through the deck, one named by spectator
reverses and has odd-colored back;
other three Queens change to Aces
152 The Thought Stealers: Two jokers
inserted into the deck emerge having captured a thought-of card.
Cul-de-Sac: A card is inserted at right angles between two cards; instead of
emerging, it vanishes, then
reappears on the other side of the tunnel. Two
versions, one improptu.

161 Appendix: Original Card Sleights and Their
161 The Relativity Two Step: A two-card push-off double
163 The Finger Servante: (stand-up) Vanish of a small item (e.g. cased
deck) being tossed in the air.
167 Chopper: An Overhand False Shuffle.
False Dovetail Shuffle: in-the-hands full-deck false shuffle, akin to Marlo's
Roman shuffle.
171 The Fan Lift Addition: Use of the Vernon
double-lift-from-fan to secretly add cards to a packet.
173 The Non-Contact
Optical Toss: Tossing two cards to the table, one is secretly switched
175 The Dorsal Cull: Spread cull that puts culled cards to the top of
the deck (or 2nd, 3rd, 4th)
instead of the bottom. Akin to Marlo's moveable
card pass.
177 Free-form Peek Control: A scrupulously fair looking control
for spectator peek.
180 Slide Steal: fast handling of the side-steal, akin to
a couple of Marlo handlings among others.
183 The Top-Card Middle Pass:
Secretly passing cards from top to center of the deck, with
186 The Flexi-Deal: false deal handling for 2nds or
188 The Gravity Bottom Deal: a bottom deal in which gravity helps
keep the deck aligned, thus avoiding
the need for a complicated LH grip.
