There is a mixture otherwise called sub (inaudible) regular to (inaudible) too soft and dictator somewhat distant other time comes as heard. They shuffle up the cards and ask back to her and choose a card at deck, so you take that one. So, that is the card. Okay, let us say, now let us put back at the middle of the deck. She said, “Okay, I am going to let make sure it appears on the deck.” They are all (inaudible). She said, “That is good, is that your?” You will say, “No.” She put that one down and that one on top. You say, “That card,” and you will say no. You should put that one down, initially on top. And, last one is that card and of course you will say no. She put that one down and this one top. She said, “Okay, I do not want to see the card, just a little wave snap and the middle card ends up being there. Okay.
Let me explain how to do this. And, the deck all shuffled up, what you can do now is the step 2, shuffle up and you said, “Okay.” Pick a card and do not look at the card, so that is the card, okay and you say okay. Put it back in the middle of the deck and this one here is called the key card. She got to remember the key card and in this case it is the 8 of clubs. You ask her to put it back at the middle of the deck, right there and memorize the key card and you cover it. Put the deck over and say okay. And, you eliminate some cards from the deck and as you are going on, blah, blah …I am going to make some card … you are for your key card. So, I found my key card and of course the one right on top of it is going to be their card. She will leave one card on top of theirs and you can get rid of the rest of the deck. You will say, okay, so this card? They will say no, of course. As you putting it down, you are making it look like, you are putting that card down, so you are doing that obstacle and glide.
You are actually sliding that card down and putting this one on the table. Actually, it looks like this, that card down, this on top. It is really … you are not putting that card down at all, just putting this card on top that they would not see the changed card twice in a row. So, as you go, okay, that card down, this one on top, do it again and you will say no. So, this time you are actually taking that card and that is one top and last one that card and you will see no. And again, you are actually taking the bottom of the card that is next on top. So, you memorize the deck and say, okay, so that was easy, now you will see the card, do any magical thing you want snap, wave, and slips it in the deck. And, the middle card will be there, so that is it.
