Marlo Tilt (Tutorial)

The Marlo Tilt is one of the basic sleight of hand moves used to perform a handful of different routines. It is a false slotting of a card from the back of the deck to create the illusion that the magician places it in the middle of the pack, but really actually slotting it somewhere near the top, usually just underneath the top card.

  2. It requires precise angles, it's so hard to perform this in da street f0k

  3. When he dropped the card at the beginning I was so confused because it didn't hit the scattered deck below. XD

  4. you are producing some weird noises with your throat, like swallowing saliva or something. too nervous.

  5. im always conflicted watching tricks get explained, ofcourse i want to know how it's but then i get a bit mad at myself for ruining the magic

  6. lol when david blane does it, he bends the card so you can see it go from the middle to the top

  7. Dude your fucking awesome!! Love your tutorials. Hope to be as good as you someday. Keep helping the beginners!!

  8. this guy is so boring and annoying explaining the trick i lose track.  ill find another video 

  9. could you do a tutorial on your push off double lift? It seems like you have your own variation to it, where the two cards are right in front of the deck when you turn them over. I would like to know how that is done.
