This edition comes with BOTH the close-up and jumbo cards – so you can peform this visually eye-popping miracle in any venue! This is without questions, one of Ton Onosaka’s most popular effects that stands the test of time! Tonte is an incredible 3-card monte effect and that fact you get both close-up and Jumbo versions means you can perform either close up, or in a parlor or cabaret or even stage type settings. We have sold Tonte for well over 30 plus years, over 500 of them and that is an impressive number when you consider we are not a wholesaler and each order (90%) of the time contains only “one” unit.
Tonte is one of the best contemporary jumbo card montes since the Fred Kaps routine of the classic “Sidewalk Shuffle.”The classic Game of “3-Card Monte” with a new Twist! Three cards are shown: two black tens, and a jack of spades. The spectator is asked to “find the picture card,” but that’s not possible, for now the performer holds three black tens- the jack is found inside the magician’s pocket! The game is repeated with the four-card set. Again, the spectator is unable to find the jack, for the packet now consists of four tens; the jack is again inside the magician’s pocket!
The performer suggests that a five card game is too difficult, so one card is set aside. The remaining cards are mixed. The spectator is asked to locate the jack, and of course, suspects that the card that was put aside is the face card. In fact, that card turns out to be a ten. The performer finally comments, “Perhaps Monte is not your game…” He turns the cards over to display a Royal Straight Flush in spades! “You should try Poker, instead!”
Effect includes all cards needed and complete teach in by the master Bob Sheets.
It is an unbelievable effect where the jumbo 10s change one by one into Queens. You’ll love handling these five specially printed, durable, plastic-coated cards. Add this to your repertoire and you won’t be sorry! It’s fun to perform and even fools magicians! By Ton Onosaka.
