A person freely chooses (not forced) two different numbered poker chips
and adds them together..
He does not tell anyone the total. Next, in his or her mind the total is
doubled or tripled. Then the person deals that number of cards off the
deck. This can be from any type of regular deck, such as ESP, Flash Cards
or playing cards. He looks at the card that he stops at. After which the
person opens an envelope, visible from the start of the effect, that contains
a miniature card with a number on its back which is the exact reverse of
the total arrivred at by the spectator-first surprise! Next the spectator's
card is turned over and the miniature card, when shown matches the spectator's
This is a utilitiy device that can be used for many types of effects. There
could be small pictures of animals on the chips and numbers on the other
side. You are limited by your imagination in the performance of this effect!
Actually, in an extended verson, up to four different cards can be predicted
during a performance. All the cards would come from different parts of
the deck as the person changes his total by adding or subtracting numbers
to form different totals or the person could end up with four of a kind,
or even a roayal flush! All can be examined; you can count on that.
