In this clever easy to do trick, the magician correctly names a hidden card.
You Need: A deck of cards, a handkerchief
Effect: The card magician puts a deck of cards under a handkerchief. The spectator cuts the deck. The magician then pulls the bottom part of the deck out and names the top card without looking at it.
What You Do: Before you perform the card trick, look at the top card. When you put the deck of cards under the handkerchief ((face down), turn the deck around under the handkerchief (face up). Then have the spectator cut the deck. Turn the part of the deck of cards that you are holding over, then take it out, name the card and the trick is done.
