This instructable doesn't instruct how the trick is supposed to be performed. Was someone supposed to choose a card first? What is the person to do with the cards he lifts from the top as he cuts the deck? Are those the cards that are laid down? What is the trick supposed to show as you lay them down? I did the trick and I got a randomized group of cards on the table.

After they cut the deck its left at that, they have no further particpation, other than being "amazed" at the end. and of course you lay them on a table or something, are you gona hold 16 cards in your hand laid in 4 coloums? at the end(if you've done it right) the jacks, queens, queens and kings should be with each other in their own coloum.

they cut the deck and they leave it at that ,they have no other part to play in the trick other than to be "amazed" at the end and of course they're laid down. Are you gonna hold 16 cards in your hands laid out in a line? at the end all the aces, jacks, queens and kings should be with each other in their coloum.
