Introduction: How to Do a Cool and Simple Card Trick

I learned this card trick from my uncle. It's really simple but will still amaze the person you are showing it to, however if the person asks you to show the trick to them again DON'T!!!!! The reason for this is that they may find out what the trick is.

Step 1: Shuffle the Deck

I know that this is sounds really simple but it is the most crucial part of the trick.
While shuffling you must take a look at the bottom card and memorize it (both number and suit). This will be very important later in the trick.

Step 2: Pick a Card

Now you fan the cards and ask the person to pick a card, look at it, and put it at the bottom of the deck.

Step 3: Shuffle the Deck, Again

This is also very important you must cut the cards up to 4 times (simple but important).

Step 4: Is This Your Card?

Now take the deck and start flipping cards over. Do you remember the card that you memorized earlier? When you see this card then you flip over one more card, pick it up and ask is this your card?

This doesnt always work, when you shuffle the cards, the two cards (the bottom one and the picked card) might get separated. It works sometimes, if you shuffle just right. When you get it down, its a great, simple card trick. Thanks!

No, you don't shuffle after they've selected a card. you only cut. This way the cards will always stay together. Using an odd number of cuts will almost always prevent the singular trouble case of the key card on bottom and the selected card on top. The only shuffling occurs before the key card is peeked at or the spectator selects a card.

Wow! This is a pretty good trick, though it does have a few flaws. What if the person chooses your bottom card? What if you shuffle and your cards are accidentally separated? Anyways, it's still pretty good.

Give your uncle a thumbs-up for me! :)

If they choose the bottom card, you just look for your memorized card.

I just tried it on three people and got it twice out of the three. But my mistake was on the one I missed i tried to get a little cocky lol.. and let the other person shuffle the deck. So advise 1 only you shuffle the card lol
