Pair 'em Up

Effect: By picking 2 cards from the deck, you will be able to match both of them up with its opposite card.

Card Trick:

First have your spectator shuffle the cards to ensure they are in no particular order. Next, take the deck and fan them face up across a table. Quickly glance at the two cards which are on both ends of the fanned deck. (Don't be obvious in sneaking a peek at the 2 cards) If, for example, the card on the far right is the Queen of diamonds, and on the far left is the 2 of spades, then you will go through the deck and pretend to pick "any 2 cards" - they will be the "opposite" cards of the 2 on either end. In this case, the Queen of hearts and the 2 of clubs. Once you have the two opposite cards picked out of the deck, collect the cards and tell the spectator that you will now deal off from the top of the deck one card at a time (face down) and he should say "stop" whenever he wants. At this point you will take the Queen of hearts and place it face up on the pile of face down cards. Take the remaining portion of the deck and place it on top. Now, repeat the procedure for the 2 of clubs - dealing one cards down at a time face down and have the spectator say stop whenever he wishes. (This must be before you reach the first card, the Queen of hearts) Place the 2 of clubs face up on the face down pile and then place the remaining deck on top. Now you should have an all face down deck, except for the 2 selected cards... the Queen of hearts and the 2 of clubs. Have the spectator cut the deck in half and then place the bottom half on the top. Next, fan the deck face down across the table so that the two selected cards are the only ones showing. Now pick up the Queen of hearts, plus the card to the right (Queen of diamonds) and then pick up the 2 of clubs, plus the cards to the right (2 of spades). By magic, the two cards have paired up with its opposite card. Your friends will be amazed.
