From and shuffled deck of cards deal 6 piles of 5 cards each. Tell the spectator to choose 2 cards from the remainder of the deck, and write the two cards on a piece of paper, fold it, and place it on the table. Then tell him to put his cards on top of any of the two piles. Pick up the piles so that two of the five card piles go on each of the 6 card piles. Then say that you will pick two cards. Run through the deck and remember the 6th and the 22nd cards. Write their names on a piece of paper, fold it, and place it next to the other piece of paper. Now deal the cards into two piles beginning at the left and dealing one card at a time. The pile on the left contains his cards. The pile on the right has your cards.

Ask the spectator which cards he wants you to find. If he says his, pick up the pile on the left. If he says yours pick up the pile on the right.

If he picks his cards Then deal the cards into two piles again, left to right, and take away the right pile after every deal. The two cards left are his cards.

If he picks your cards Do the same thing but take away the pile on the left every time
