This card trick is easy to learn and has great entertainment value. It requires a couple of relatively easy card sleights and a little bit of cunning and then you are all set to deliver a brilliant performance.
This cheeky trick can usually be repeated a few times one after the other to the same spectator who usually end up more baffled each time you do it
The easiest way to explain the prediction trick is by watching the performance and tutorial on the video below .
You may already know the basic sleights being used in the trick. If not they are reasonably easy to learn with a little practice. The riffle shuffle in the video looks impressive but the trick will work just as well if you are using a simple overhand shuffle.
This stunt goes to prove that an easy trick, performed well can be very effective at impressing your audience.
