100 Card Tricks with Rudy Hunter • 5m 18s
TAKE any court card face downward and place a sixpence on the center of its back. Hold the coin firmly with the thumbs and press firmly and evenly with the fingers from underneath all around the card. The shape of the coin will be clearly impressed on the card, a rim, imperceptible to the eye, being left on the face of the card. The cards may be freely shuffled by a spectator and the prepared card will pass unnoticed, yet you can find it instantly by squaring the pack and cutting. After a card has been chosen simply cut at the prepared card, have the selected card returned on top of the lower half and drop the cut fairly and openly on top. You have simply to square the pack, cut at the locator card and riffle shuffle, leaving the chosen card at the top to be dealt with as you please. Or you may hold the pack as for the Charlier Pass, relax the pressure of the thumb and the pack will always break at the prepared card.
