You Do As I Do

IN THIS version the two packs are shuffled and exchanged, then both are again shuffled and exchanged but before handing over your pack you sight the top card. The best way to do this is to sight the bottom card when taking the pack from the spectator then with an overhand shuffle bring that card to the top. In this way there is no movement of any kind to arouse any suspicion in the spectator's mind as the cards are exchanged the second time. Spread your pack on the table, the spectator does the same. Take out a card from your spread look at it and put it on the top. He does the same. Square your pack and cut it and he follows suit. Change packs once more, tell the spectator to take out his card while you take out yours. Really you take no notice of the card you drew, but simply remove the card above the card you sighted on the top of his pack. The two cards are turned and prove to be the same. Throughout the trick lay great stress on having the spectator work in exact unison with you as if everything depended on that.
