With practice, you'll learn to control the spec. You have to make them believe it's the same card.

I agree with exodus. However, sometimes you just get the ultimate heckler (this shouldn't happen because you shouldn't be doing a trick to this person.)
Anyways, on to your question. If this does happen. I usually make it into a joke and say something like, "Dude! How'd you do that? I thought I was the magician!" If there are other people around, that usually gets some good laughs. After this, proceed another trick.

Hope it helps,
Craig

In my opinion there are some people who are simply not suitable for some tricks.

I have one friend who views each trick like a scientific experiment. For example, if I show him the ace of spades then put it face down on the table, he'll want to take a peek at the face down card to make absolutey certain it's still the ace of spades. If I reach across the table and my elbow partially obscures the card for a split second, he'll want to take yet another look.

There's some tricks I can do for him but others that would never fly. You can control spectators, sure, but ultimately they'll do what they want.

I agree with Craig. If they turn it over early, ask them how they did that. I use to do that until I got comfortable with my variation of that routine. For the really bad hecklers, I would suggest getting out of the situation.

were.

I wouldn't use any gimmicks at first. That way you know if they're grabby or not.
