It truly is the first thing he pulls out when someone wants to see an effect.
The routine flows beautifully from one phase to the next and big, BIG reactions. I'm glad you have the opportunity to learn this from such a master. Remember that you may know a few moves that you see in the trailer but the key to such dynamic reactions is the psychology BEHIND the moves. This is what Daniel teaches so well and what you'll be getting when you purchase Card to Pocket.

Daniel stands on the shoulders of giants to present the Madison Card to Pocket routine.
This is not only Daniel's 'goto' effect - it's both his opener and closer when he does perform it, simply because it's so powerful that nothing else can follow it.
A multiphase, modular routine, Daniel's teaching focuses on the psychology and framing of the effect to deliver a punch-to-the-throat performance each and every time. Much time is also spent on the nuances of the sleights used to address common mistakes in the card to pocket you may already perform.
Daniel leads his spectators on an unexpected journey with this routine, changing the way the card - or cards - appear each time, creating a cleaner and more impossible appearance with each phase.
Never again be at a loss when someone says 'show me something'. Shut them up with Madison's CTP.
Run Time: 19 minutes.
I have had this effect for over a year, but it wasn't until this past Thanksgiving weekend that I really seriously studied the video. I'm still a beginner with cards but not only does Mr. Madison teach the sleights incredibly well and detailed, but he also gives a lot of tips on the performance of the effect. Right now this is probably the hardest hitting effect in my routine. I could definitely see it becoming my "Go To" effect.
This is a stellar trick. First, the explanation is really great and DM walks you through every step and audience management and angles and whatnot in just the right amount of depth. Second, the routine itself is really cool and fun to perform. Third, he's not lying when he says this is the only trick you have to do. It really hits that hard. Definitely get it.
This is now my favorite trick to perform because it truly can be performed anywhere, anytime. None of the sleight of hand is very difficult and most of the trick relies on your presentation and misdirection. As with many of DM's effects, CTP gives the magician room to grow and develop his/her own style of performance.
