Good Intuition is an unbelievably strong effect in which three spectators each pick a card and then seemingly deal down to any point in the deck and they always hit their card. This trick is totally flabbergasting!
Inspired by Dani DaOrtiz’s Triple Intuition, which uses a gaffed deck, Sedlacek created an ungimmicked versin of the effect. This is not a self-worker. In fact, it draws upon many sleights, techniques, moves and methods. In addition you need to be able to juggle and jazz with your spectators.
This video is not only a trick that is demonstrated and taught, but it is a greater lesson on magic. Sedlacek gives his why and how in a greater philosophical meaning. He teaches lessons for all your tricks and how to deal with different outs and situations that are not ideal. He teaches audience management and interaction and the lessons are well worth the price of this fantastic trick.
As mentioned above, you need to jazz quite a bit because you will not always hit in the way that the spectators believe has happened. The deck can be shuffled thoroughly by a spectator, but the performer needs to be adept at a certain sleight so that he can set up the deck in front of many spectators on the fly. The set up is not complicated, but it will require practice for beginners that are not proficient at culling cards. To be honest, this trick will require a bit of practice before you feel comfortable taking it on the road. It is worth the effort.
Sedlacek frequently credits his inspiration and often refers to Tamariz for concepts that he has written on.
Once you purchase the video at: https://www.murphysmagic.com/product.aspx?id=65625 for $14.95 you will watch Sedlacek perform the trick in studio to 3 spectators. It is a great presentation and you can see his personality really come to life. After the demonstration, Sedlacek teaches the trick and the moves. The entire download is about 50 minutes. At some points he moves quickly and at others he moves at a more tempered pace. The promo video does not have a full presentation of the trick and it should have used the studio performance because it is so killer.

“Bernardo has created a wonderful version of Triple Intuition. I love the original routine by Dani Da Ortiz. This new routine is impromptu which appeals to me because I love working with a borrowed deck. Also, Bernardo’s interpretation is equally as strong as the original because it uses the same structure and design to play with the psychology of the audience. This is important because what the audience remembers is more important than what actually happens. I congratulate Bernardo for his excellent quality of thinking in designing this routine. This is going into my repertoire. Highly recommended.”
– Michael Vincent

Well done Bernardo strong effect with a strong structure with a nice presentation. What more do you want!”

“I really don’t like card tricks. Most plots feel contrived to me. There are usually steps that do not make sense if you were really magic. Not with Bernardo. His routines are always well thought out to feel like the magic is happening organically. Triple Intuition is no exception. It truly plays as if these miracles were really happening. Triple intuition is not complicated from a sleight of hand perspective, even I can do it! The real secrets are in the psychology Bernardo shares and you can apply them to other effects in your repertoire.”

So often you see praise from fellow magicians and are disappointed because of the questionable hyperbole. There are just too many excellent magicians singing Sedlacek’s praises for it to be questionable. I agree with the praise. This is the kind of trick that will have people talking for, well, forever. It’s downright awesome.
