Ask one of the ladies to remove the key and fob from your pocket and hold it up for all to see Applause.

If you think you can get away with it, you can let the lady keep the key and fob, look at your watch and end with the statement, "I'll meet you there in 5 minutes."

The second effect frpra Jack can be found later in the issue ... It's well worth waiting for!

SYMPATHY Gay Ljungberg

Gay informed me that he based this effect on Gentleman Jack's SIDE BY SIDE effect from his lecture notes. You'll need one Rainbow deck which is minus one indifferent card, the same indifferent card but from a red backed deck, a deck of blue backed blank faced cards, two Court cards that are the same ie. King of Hearts with blue backs and finally a pencil and paper.

Preparation

The Rainbow Deck should be in a red card case and the 10th card from the bottom should be one of the blue backed King of Hearts. The bottom card of the deck should be the indifferent red backed card.

The blank faced deck should be in a blue card case with the other King of Hearts face down on top. (On top of the deck that is, not the card case!)

Performance

Start with a spectator on either side of you and the cased decks on the table. Have each spectator pick up a deck.

Take the blue card case from the spectator, remove the deck and force him to select the top card. I use the 'CROSSING THE CUT' method. Simply hold the deck face down in your hand, ask the spectator to cut off some cards and place them on the table. You now place the rest of the deck onto his half so that a crops shape is made.

You now need to patter for a few seconds so that he will forget the cards a little. I sometimes perform a short thumb-tie routine at this point.

Turn to the other spectator and ask if she has a favourite or lucky number. Usually you will receive a number between 10 and 20 but if you don't, ask her to name a number between 10 and 20.

In the mean time, you have removed the deck from the red case face up.

You now force the King of Hearts on this spectator using the 'BETWEEN 10 AND 20' method. Assuming that she says, "14" . . . hand her the pencil and paper and have her write the number down. You now deal the same number of cards from the face of the deck to the table in a neat pile. Pick up the pile and place it back onto the face of the deck. Take the pencil and draw a + between the numbers 1 and 4 ie. 1+4.

Ask her to work out the answer to this difficult problem and when you receive the answer '5', deal off 5 cards again from the face onto the table and hand the spectator the 5th card, which is of course the King of Hearts!!

Patter to the effect that it's a very lucky card for you and turn to the other spectator, lift off the upper half and remove the top card of the lower half and place it face down in front of him. This card is the other King of Hearts! Place the deck down and take a King in each hand. Slowly turn the face up card face down and the two blue backs will be seen. Triumphantly point out that you have succeeded, both cards
