Thought Of Card At Thought Of Number
Semi-Automatic Weapons Chapter 8:
Dani DaOrtiz shares with you a stunning thought of card at thought of number that also serves as a lesson for anyone who wants to have total control while presenting absolute chaos. The trick begins with the spectator shuffling the deck. A card is shown to be openly placed on the table face down, and one spectator is told that this card will be theirs, but they will discover what the
magician means later. A card is taken off the top, and a spectator randomly tosses that card in the middle of the pack. The deck is divided, and the top card of each pile is set aside. The deck is offered to many spectators who shuffle the deck even further. One of the spectators thinks of any number the way and then looks at the card in that position. The deck is reassembled. The cards on the table are turned face up. Two of the cards have their values added together, and the third card is blank. The number the spectator thought of is written on the blank card, and the complete total is added together. That number is dealt down in the deck, and impossibly the card the spectator thought of is in that position.
This lesson, just over 40 minutes in length, will teach you a series of powerful weapons that will allow you to gain mastery over key cards, thought of numbers, and give the appearance of a well shuffled deck. Key takeaways for the student include:
