RUN through any well-shuffled pack to remove the Joker and, as you do this, note and memorize the three top cards. Hand the pack to a spectator and tell him to deal three heaps face down. After he has dealt several rounds tell him he can deal irregularly, two on one heap, three on another and so on. The three key cards that you memorized have already been dealt and will be the bottom cards of the three heaps, which is all that matters to you. Three persons each take a card from a different pile and look at it, replacing it on the top of the respective heaps. Spectator puts the heaps in a pile and cuts. To discover the cards you have only to look for the key cards and take out the card just below each one. You can run through the pack and slip the selected cards to the top or bottom and then reveal each one in a different way.
