Step 1: For the Best Results
For the best results you either need to be a good talker or have a table. If you have both then great! This trick is all about distraction.
Step 2: Shuffle
Shuffle your cards in front of the audience and show them that there isn't a set up.
Step 3: Pick a Card
Have one of the audience members pick a card.
Step 4: Turning Deck
Next turn the deck face up and flip the first card so it is facing down. Do this under the table or while distracting the audience by talking.
Step 5: Putting the Card Back
Have your audience member put the card back into the middle. They will see the first card and pit it in the same way the first card is facing.
Step 6: More Distractions
While distracting the audience or under the table, flip the top card back over and then flip the entire deck back to how it originally was.
Step 7: Revealing
Say to the audience "I'm going to set the card you picked apart from the others" and then snap or rub the cards or some weird thing. Now to reveal the card either spread them out on the table or fan them out. Their card will be the only card facing up in the deck and your audience will be amazed.
