Bar Tricks:
Coin & Card Bar Bet

"As a 65 year old Grandfather who is interested only in
entertaining my 10 Grandchildren I plan to be back often."

While not strictly a magic trick this is one of my favourite bar tricks to perform. I like to set
it up as a proposition bet. For example...

THE EFFECT: I say to someone "I bet you I can remove the card from under the coin without it falling" then I say "If I can't I buy you a drink, if I can you buy me a drink!" That will set your mates up nicely :-) Watch the bar trick below then learn the easy secret...

THE SECRET: Bar bets are great they usually have such a simple secret and this one is no exception. It's all about the 'flick' and 'balance'.

THE METHOD: What do I mean? Well when you place the card and coin on your fingertip you need to make sure they are balanced evenly. The coin needs to be in the dead center of the card and the coin/card needs to be in the dead center of your fingertip. You should be able to feel when you get the balance right.

The next part that needs practice is the 'flick' move. You need to strike the card by flicking the side. Make sure you hit the card exactly on it's side edge in a horizontal motion. Don't flick down on the card and don't flick from under it. If you do the coin and card will fall to the ground!

TIP: You can always let your mates have a go if they want before you show them how it's done. Even if they figure out how to do it (which they won't) it still takes practice to do. You will be the practiced one not them!
