Bring out the pre-arranged pack and feel for the crimp. Use this to get a little finger break below the three reversed tens in the face-up pack. Lift off all the cards above the break and place the rest of the pack to one side, face down.
Hold the packet face upwards in the left hand, taking care not to flash the bottom reversed card. Thumb off the four jacks into the right hand. Show them, turn them face down and return them to the bottom of the packet, the position is shown in. Fig. 2. Do the same with the four queens, then the kings and finally the jices. You have apparently shown all of the cards, whilst secretly concealing the three tens. All of the cards are now the same way round and the tens are on top of the packet. Ensure that the audience are aware that the cards they were shown were all in blocks of four.
Drop the cards face down on top of the pack. Fig. 3 shows the situation at this point. Obviously you do not show the cards as in Fig. 3. Keep them squared up. Pick up the pack and place it face down in the left hand.
