Effect: The magician places a prediction card on the table indicating his lucky number. The spectator thinks of a number from one to ten, cuts the deck in two and takes a number of cards equal to the number he has in mind. He shuffles them and looks at the card at the bottom. Then he loses the packet in the center of the deck. Under impossible conditions the magician shuffles the deck several times and incredibly the top card reflects the number thought up by the spectator. Not only that: the magician is able to establish the exact position of the spectator’s card.
Finally, the magician’s prediction is a four of hearts and actually the fourth card after the spectator’s card is the four of hearts.
