Card Tricks
The Finger Points


ANY complete pack is handed to a spectator to shuffle: instruct him to merely think of a card as he shuffles. Take the pack and spread it widely on the table with the faces up. Tell the spectator to hold his right hand over the cards, with his forefinger pointing downwards, and move it slowly from one end of the row to the other and back again. When he comes to the card he thought of tell him he is to say mentally, `That`s it,` but on no account to hesitate or stop. Before he does this take up your position a little distance away from the table.

It is a psychological fact that if the spectator carries out your instructions he will hesitate for a fraction of a second when he comes to his card. If you stood close to him this could not be detected but from a little distance it becomes quite noticeable and you learn the approximate position of the card, within five or six cards at the very most. Return to the table, glance at this group memorizing them, cut the pack to bring them to the top and put the pack behind your back. In memorizing the cards, disregard the suits and remember the values as you would a telephone number, thus 48-762. Ask the number of spots on the card and bring forward the correct one, putting it face down. The suit is named and you turn the card.
