As in the classic three-card monte routine, the magician displays one “winner card” along with two others, two eight of hearts cards, for example. The magician asks a spectator to try and follow the ace. All three cards are turned face down and one of the eights is even clearly shown and set aside to better the spectator’s chances.
Now there are only two cards-there’s a 50/50 chance the spectator will find the ace! The cards are mixed, but no matter what card the spectator chooses they can’t find the ace because somehow it magically changed places with the eight that was set aside at the beginning! Everything may then be fully examined.
One of Henry’s most direct and visual routines. Comes with three normal Bicycle cards (uses any three cards), the necessary secret gimmicks and photo-illustrated instructions.
