n any regular deck, place a breather crimp on any card, for instance the seven of clubs. If you do not know the breather crimp, you can use any regular crimp.
Remove the pack from the case, and hand it to the victim to shuffle, indicating that it should be shuffled overhand. Make sure that the deck is kept face down. Tell the victim to place the deck on the table. Say that you will cut to a random card, and cut to the crimped 7C, flashing the face of the card to the victim, and ask him to remember it.
Replace the cut packet squarely back on the deck, and again get the spectator to overhand shuffle the deck face down, and replace the deck on the table. Cut to the crimp, showing that you have located the 7C, showing the face card of the cut packet.
Repeat this effect one more time, then take the pack, cut the 7C to the bottom, and slip shuffle the deck leaving it there. Turn the pack face up, showing the 7C on the bottom of the deck - located again!
Ask for a small number, and using the glide, produce the 7C from the bottom of the deck at the specified location. Replace the 7C on top of the deck, and repeat the slip shuffle, and glide location without first showing the card on the bottom of the deck - this really enhances this part of the effect.
Again, replace the 7C on top of the deck, slip shuffle to the bottom, and use the hindu flash shuffle to show that the whole deck is in fact made up of 52 seven of clubs. Place the last packet under the deck so that the seven of clubs is on the bottom, and push it off onto the table and flip it face up. Riffle the side of the deck with your left thumb, click you right fingers and immediately turn the deck face up and spread the cards in a wide fan to show that they are in fact all different. The deck and the single 7C can be fully examined by the victim. ( Don't forget to remove the crimp first if you are not using the breather crimp!)
There are many different moves you could use in this routine Although the description is quite long winded, the effect should be carried out at a brisk pace, and the cards handled confidently at all times.
