For all of you that don't know about this trick, it's brilliant: You force a card on a spectator. Whatever method you use, their selected card should end up on top of the face down deck ( you could just use any method, find their card and openly place it on top, but it doesn't look that good ). You know move the top card (their selection)to the bottom of the deck using an overhand shuffle. As far as your spectator knows, their card is lost in the deck. You now instruct the spectator to hold the face down pack in one hand. Their thumb should be on the top card and their middle and forefinger on the bottom of the deck, extended slightly further than the thumb. Tell the spectator to hold the deck not tightly but not lightly either. You now give the pack a fairly firm karate chop in front of their thumb. All the cards should fall from the spectators hands except the bottom card-- their selected card. It is a great little trick and i have got some really cool reactions with it. give it a try!

won't they notice that you were chopping cards from the top and the bottom card remained. THen they might realize you somehow brought their card to the bottom. Then they will remember the overhand shuffle. Then they will remember you flipped a card over and put it back in face-down. Then they will infer you sneakily lifted 2 cards at once. Then they will know how the trick works. Ooops sorry. I got a little carried away lol. Its still a good trick. Thanks for the post. :)

There is no flipping over of cards or double lifting. you just place the face down forced card on top of the face down deck then shuffle. Nobody i have done it on realises that their card was on the bottom. it all happens pretty quick. O and by the way Max, I got that from a book.

I can't believe you tell me to grow up when you speak of childish obscenities. I was telling him that if he thought that was cool then he should buy a book and see ALL of the cooler things. -Max
