Effect: A card is drawn from the deck at random. The spectator holds the card to his chest and the magician reads his mind and tells him what it is.
Card Trick: The deck is shuffled by the spectator. You riffle shuffle the deck noting the bottom card in your right hand. when you riffle shuffle the deck start with the right hand first which will put the card that you just looked at on the bottom. Do a false over-hand shuffle dropping off the bottom card last bringing it to the top.
hold the deck in dealing fashion in the left hand, and with the left thumb riffle the upper left corner of the deck and have the person say stop. here comes the slight pain in the @$$ from where they said stop bend the top half of the deck up 90' so the cards form a v. when you take the top half up to hand the bottom to the spectator you hold your finger on the top so you drag off the top card (the one you should still remember from the beginning) turn your body to the right when you do this. now tell the spectator to take the top card on the bottom half and then tell them what it is!!
