In David Blaine's What is Magic video, i saw this card magic that really interested me.

The effect was the spectator holds the cards then she named a card "3 of Hearts", she then cuts the cards. After that she was hold flick the deck anywhere she wanted, and hlaf the deck flips over and it was the 3 of hearts.

Was wondering is this trick marketed? If so where can i learn/buy this trick. I don't have a youtube link atm, trying to find it now.

The basic principle can be found in Pit Hartling's book Card Fictions. It is called Finger Flicker, although I don't think it will teach you the "think of a card" part, if that's what you're looking for. You can find the book here.

It is. I use the concept in my Scarne's Aces handling, which is on my Youtube, and it kills. It's very well explained, but the trick itself is going to take some works.

Bought the book waiting for it to come now. Been playing with my concept on how it works for now, but i don't see how the trick needs work, when really its not in my control (David Blaine's Version). Or u meant for the scarne's aces? Also great video :)

Wait until you get the book and you'll see where the work comes in. The basic concept is something you could pick up in a matter of hours, if not minutes. It's the rest of the trick that will take some memory work.
