This effect came about after reading an Ed Marlo version of Hofsinzer's Everywhere and Nowhere plot. While the Marlo effect wasthe catalyst for this trick, at the end of day they don't really resembleeach other in the slightest.
Two cards are selected and lost in the deck, we'll say the cards arethe Five of Spades and the Eight of Hearts. The magician has thespectator cut the deck into two piles. The magician picks up one pileand runs through it, asking the spectators to tell him when they seetheir cards. Neither card is in the magician's half.The magician then instructs one of the spectators to cut the remaininghalf into three piles. The magician turns over the top card of eachpile. None are the spectator's cards. The magician clicks his fingersand shows the three cards again. They are now three duplicates of the Five of Spades! One more click and when the three cards areturned face up again, they are now the mates of the Eight of Hearts!The magician spread his half of the deck and the Eight of Hearts isseen reversed in the middle. But what of the Five of Spades? Thedeck is reassembled and the magician hands it to the spectator. She
spells “Find the card”, dealing one card for each letter and discoversthe Five!
Okay, this is pretty complicated. Grab a deck, read carefully and try tofollow along...Place any four of a kind on top of the deck in any order.Are you still with me? All kidding aside, that's the only prep you needto do which makes this extremely practical.In this example, we'll use the Eights and say that the Eight of Heartsis on top of all.
1.Give the deck a shuffle retaining the top stock. Cut the deck,keeping a pinky break between the halves, and perform a RiffleForce, forcing the Eight of Hearts on the first spectator. Thumbthe card off the deck and have the spectator look at it.Reassemble the deck, the other three Eights going back on top.Turn to another spectator and riffle your left thumb down theside of the deck. Wherever the spectator calls stop, legitimatelycut the deck at that point and thumb the top card off the bottomhalf to the spectator. We'll say this card is the Five of Spades.Place the right hand portion onto the left hand portion so thatthe three Eights are once again on top of the deck.2.As the spectators are looking at the selections, secure a breakunder the top three cards of the deck.3.Take the Five back and place it on top of the deck. You now holda break under four cards. Perform a Braue Reversal so the four
cards are now reversed at the back of the face up deck. Forthose of you who don't know the Braue Reversal, here's a brief description:Hold the deck from above in right hand Biddle Grip, the rightthumb holding the break between the top four cards and the restof the deck.With your left hand, undercut half the deck and flip it face up ontop of the cards above the break. Undercut the rest of the cardsunder the break and flip them face up on top of all. You are nowholding a face up deck with four cards reversed at the rear.
Re-grip the deck so you are holding it face down in dealer's grip.However, keep the top of the deck tilted back (neck-tied) so thespectators cannot see the reversed card on top
(Fig. 1)
Take the Eight of Hearts back and place it face down on top of the deck
(Fig. 2)
. Tilt the deck down so you are holding itparallel to the floor.
Position check from the top of the deck down:
Face downEight of Hearts, face up Eight, face up Eight, face up Eight, faceup second selection, face down rest of the deck.6.Give the deck a couple of false cuts and place it on the table. Askthe spectator to cut the deck in half.
