Run through the face up pack and look for any spot value card fr6m 4 to 10 inclusive. When you have found one, remove it, plus a quantity of cards behind it equal to its value i.e. if you remove a five spot, remove a further five cards with it, the five spot being at the face of the group. Place the packet face down on the table. Repeat this procedure with a further three spot value, no values being repeated. Place each packet face down in a separate position on the table.
Pick up any of the four face down packets and place it into the left hand in the Glide position. Twist the left hand to show the face card of the packet and draw attention to its numeric value — let's say it's a five spot.
Appear to draw off the five spot and place it face down on the table but really carry out the glide so that the second from face really goes down. Count the remaining cards without altering their order, pointing out that you have exactly the same quantity of cards as the value of the one placed on the* table, and place these on the table a little below the single card. Repeat this procedure with each of the other three packets until you have a face down layout on the table something like the diagram:
Pick up the four single face down cards and mix them up, finally dealing them in a line from left to right on the table. Now change the face down multi-card packets around a bit, finally leaving each in a carefully squared packet on the table, the actual positions being of no importance.
Pick up any one of the multi-card packets and drop it on top of any of the face down single cards as freely nominated bv a spectator. Repeat with the other three packets, dropping each on one of the remaining three iace down cards in any order the spectator requests. Point out the complete freedom of choice given to the spectator.
Pick up any of the packets and place it face down in the left hand. Count the cards out loud from the top of the packet, dealing them in a heap on the table, but Bottom Dealing on the second card dealt. Deal until one card remains in the left hand. Say the number you have counted out loud is five, slowly turn the remaining card in the left hand over to show it is a five spot. Repeat this procedure with each of the other three packets. The spectator has thus apparently married up every packet with its correct quantity card.
