Assume that spectator says his card is twelfth from the top. "The twelfth card from the top. Let us count down twelve cards." Count off twelve cards, one at a time, into spectator's hand. "Please look to see whether the twelfth card is yours."

The moment his attention is MISDIRECTED to see what the twelfth card is, PALM off the thirteenth card in your right hand and place it in your right trousers pocket. This is the selected card.

"The twelfth is NOT your card, you say. Well, perhaps, the one I placed in my pocket is your card."
