Face Down Card

When you remove your card from the "Brainwave", break the spread at that point. The position will be that shown in Fig. 4. Pick up all the cards in section "A" square them and turn them face down. Place the packet in the

left hand. Now pick up the "reversed" card and place it face down on top of the cards in the left hand. Next scoop up all of the remaining cards but "accidently" leave the bottom three behind. Square up this packet and place on top. Finally pick up the last three cards. Turn them over in a slight fan and drop them on the rest. To reset, for another performance, you simply have to go through the pack and reverse the one card, which is wrong way round.

The audience have seen a lot of backs and any idea of more than one card being reversed seems unlikely.

Tamariz says that this routine is based on ideas by Vern Chesbro and J.G. Thompson Jr.
