HERE again the key card with pencil dot on top left and lower right corners is used. Let the Pack be thoroughly shuffled and four cards be freely drawn. Fan the pack to show the cards well mixed, spot the dotted card and split the pack so that the first card is returned under it. Cut the pack several times. Fan and locate the key card and divide the pack one card below it so that the first card returned is at the face of the portion you lift off for the return of the second, tilt this slightly as the second card is returned and so sight the first person's card.
