I think this needs better descriptions, or maybe a video. I don't get the point of this trick... there's no 'magic' in it...?
Look at it again. The only card the magician controls is the card on the bottom of the deck. The other "chooser" cards are random, but the magician gets to see them. The magician then reveals all the chosen cards in a way that makes the chooser think the magician was directing his choices. It's a clever trick!
