The Sandwiched Aces





Preparation: From an ordinary deck remove the four aces and place them in the following order: from top to bottom the order is the Ace of clubs on top, the Ace of Hearts below it, and below the Ace of Hearts is the Ace of Spades. Now place the remaining ace (the Ace of Diamonds) face up on the bottom of the deck.

Trick: With the pack held in the dealing position in the left hand, grasp the top card of the pack (the Ace of Clubs) between the thumb and fingers of your right hand in the same grip as if executing the Double Lift. Do not do the Double Lift, just pick up the Ace of clubs...showing it to the audience. Replace the Ace on top of the pack and, without hesitation, take it with your right fingers and place it face down on the table, saying "I will place it on the table." Now, secure a Little finger break between the next two cards on top of the pack (the Ace of Hearts and the Ace of Spades. Execute a double lift, lifting both cards as one from the top of the pack. Turn them over showing the face of what the spectators believe to be the top card-the Ace of Spades. As you display the Ace, remark, "Here is the next card, the Ace of Spades...." Replace the two cards back on the top of the pack and immediately take the REAL TOP CARD (the ace of hearts) from the top of the pack and place it face down next to the Ace of Clubs on the table. Say, "...which I will place here next to the Ace of Clubs." Run through the pack face down and invite the spectator to select any card. When he does, square the pack and hold it in dealing position in the left hand. Instruct the spectator to turn his card face up and slide it between the two "Black Aces" on the table, thus "sandwiching" his card between them.

Now, secure a LITTLE FINGER BREAK under only the top card of the pack (Ace of Spades) Because the attention of the audience is focused on what the spectator is doing, obtaining the Little Finger Break will go completely unnoticed. Next, pick up the three cards on the table and place them on top of the pack-ADDING THEM TO THE ACE OF SPADES-and square all four cards together above the break. Without hesitation, turn over all four cards (as three) up on the pack. The two Black Aces will be face up on top of the pack...the spectator's card will be face down below the Aces...and below that will be the face up Ace Of Hearts. As soon as the four cards have been turned over, carefully take the two Black Aces with your right hand and place them face up on the table. Remark, "your card seems to have disappeared from between the two Black Aces. Now pick up the deck, being careful not to expose the face up card below the top card, and give them a single cut. All that remains now is to ribbon spread the pack on the table. When the spectator turns over the "sandwiched" card, he will be amazed to see that his card has mysteriously appeared between the two RED ACES!!!
