Take your own card, in our example the Eight of Clubs, and place it face up on top of the dealt ¡jacket.

If you would like to check, the Jack of Spades should be on top of the deck and the Six of I diamonds on the bottom.

Hand the deck to the fust si>ectatort who follows your instructions by drilling cards face down from the top into a pile and stops at any time. Have him place lus card, u» this case tin-Six of Hearts, face up on die pile he has formed and drop the l>alance of the deck on top.
