A card is selected and placed between two Black aces, in an instant the selected card disappears and then re-appears between two Red aces in the centre of the deck !
A spectator cuts the deck four times - each time he cuts to an Ace !
A Spectator is allowed to shuffle the deck. The magician takes the deck and holds it on the flat of his hand.
The spectator is then asked to cut the deck at any point, he then turns over the cut portion and replaces it on top of the deck.
The magician thumb spreads the cards across until he comes to the first face-down card, which he places on the table, face-down.
The face-up portion is turned face-down and the spectator is asked to cut again repeating his actions.
This sequence is repeated four times.
"Now let's see how you have done."says the magician.
The magician slowly turns over the four tabled cards revealing - Four Aces !
Beforehand remove the four Aces and two indifferent cards.
Arrange these cards as follows :-
Ace, Ace, Indifferent card -beneath these -a face up indifferent card, face up Ace, face up Ace.
Have these cards pocketed. Once the deck has been shuffled, palm the Ace packet and add it the top of the deck.
The rest is self working but it does require that the magician keeps good control of the deck, ensuring that the face up cards are not exposed during the spreading/thumbing action. Also when the trick is finished - the second card on top of the deck will be a face up card - Carefully reverse it.
