You want to astonish your friends ?
This card trick is by far one of the best self-working card tricks. If you really want to fool a friend with a great card trick, this is the one that will do it. Even though it requires no skill and is relatively easy to do, it is very interesting to note that the impact of this effect is so great that quite a number of professional magicians, who are proficient sleight-of-hand experts, still feature it in their performance. When people beg me because they want to learn a magic trick, this is the one that I show them. Everything is in the presentation.
