spectator shuffles a deck of cards and another spectator simply names any
of the four suits. The magician retrieves the pack and then quickly cuts
it into 10 piles. Amazingly, the first packet is counted and found to contain
just one card! The second packet contains two cards, the third three cards
and so on, all the way through to the last packet containing exactly 10
top card of each packet is then turned over (remember the deck was shuffled
by a spectator at the beginning), and assuming that the spectator chose
Spades as the suit, the first card is the Ace of Spades. The card on top
of the second packet is the Two of Spades, on top of the third packet
is the Three of Spades and so on all the way through the rest of the packets!
Ace through Ten of Spades are then set aside and the deck is reassembled.
The Jack of Spades is then found on top of the deck and the Queen and
King of Spades are found on the bottom!
deck is then cut again, this time into three piles which are shown to
each contain the thirteen cards of the remaining suits, in numerical
complete with the necessary deck of Bicycle cards and detailed instructions.
