Dr. Daley's Card Reverse

There are at least three secret reversals by Dr. Jacob Daley that are referred to as “The Daley Reverse”. All three share similarities, yet are distinctly different sequences.

  • Cluttering the modern use of “The Daley Reverse” moniker for the above move, Jean Hugard published a different technique as “The Daley Reverse” in Card Manipulations No. 5, 1936, p. 144.
  • Another move that is occasionally referred to as “The Daley Reverse” is one he created with Sam Leo Horowitz. Daley recorded the technique in his notebooks; see Jacob Daley's Notebooks, nd. (c. 1974), p. 70 (item 280).
