Find the Court Card
You bring the court card back into play and now hold four cards. The process is repeated and the spectator again discovers that the court card has turned into another ten. And yes, the court card is now in your pocket. You bring the court card into play to now work with five cards. After some byplay, you show that the cards have changed to form a royal flush.
Standard and Jumbo
The set comes with two versions: jumbo cards and standard poker sized cards. There are also written instructions for the standard cards and a DVD that stars Bob Sheets that teaches the jumbo routine.
The written instructions as well as the video lesson are first rate. Sheets teaches his jumbo routine with an "over the shoulder" view so you can see the cards from the performer’s perspective.
The different moves were born out of necessity of working with the jumbo cards, which are displayed in front of you as opposed to down at waist level as you do with the standard cards.
There's no doubt that Tonte is a great effect. If you've been wanting to add a stand-up "monte" style routine to your act, this is definitely one to consider and learn.
