To Perform

Follow the presentation as previously outlined by having the spectator test the roulette wheel. Before he spins for the actual selection of a number on the wheel, remove the pad from your pocket and flip open the cover. By placing your right thumb over the lower right hand corner of the first page, you can casually flash the page to your audience showing that it's blank. Your right thumb covers any bleed through of the numeral "3" which is written on the reverse side of the first page. Appear to concentrate and on the first page print the following: "Blackjack: l0 + l0 = 20." Be sure the audience doesn't see what you've written. Place the pen down and, grasping the first page at the lower right hand corner, tear the page from the pad. Close the pad and place it under your right arm. Quarter fold the first page, always keeping the numeral "3" facing you during the folding procedure. Pick up the pen and pretend to print the numeral "1" right over the area where your previously placed numeral "3" is located. Drop the folded slip of paper into the crystal wine glass being careful to keep the number side facing away from the audience. Now have the spectator spin the roulette wheel and remember the selected number. Incidentally, there's no need to have the spectator call out the number since it's clearly visible to you.

Pick up the pair of dice and toss them onto the table to show the spectator what you now want him to do. Tell him that you want him to throw the dice twice, calling out the total showing after each toss. This is done to demonstrate that the dice aren't loaded. Remove the pad from under your arm and open it, casually allowing the audience to see that the top page is blank and using your thumb to mask any telltale traces of the numeral "1" that might bleed through the page.

Do your "pensive" bit and simultaneously note the chosen number on the roulette wheel (in case you've forgotten it). On the pad, print the following, as in our example, "Roulette: 28 Black." Remove the page, place the pad under your armpit and fold the slip, keeping the previously printed number away from the audience's view. Again, pretend to number the slip, this time with the numeral "2." Place the folded slip in the wine glass with the number side facing you. (Note: If you keep the paper moving after you've torn it from the pad, the audience will never catch a glimpse of what you've actually written on the slip). Now ask the spectator to throw the pair of dice one final time. Note the number thrown, but don't call it aloud. As in our example, let's say the spectator has rolled a 6 and a 4 for a total of l0.

Remove the pad and open the cover. On the top page, print the following: "Craps: 6 + 4= 10." Repeat as before, removing the page, folding it in quarters keeping the previously written numeral "2" facing away from the audience's view. Pretend to write the numeral "3" on the folded slip and drop it in the wine glass. Place the pad in your pocket and pick up the cased deck of cards.

Remove the cards and run through them, face up, allowing the spectator to see that the deck is perfectly legitimate and thoroughly mixed. Have him verbally confirm this to the rest of the audience. Fan the cards towards the audience and allow them to see for themselves that the deck does consist of 52 different playing cards. If you can give the deck a false cut, then by all means do so, however, it's not necessary.

Hand the deck face down to the spectator and ask him to deal the cards face up in a pile on the table, one at a time. As he does so, wait until he's dealt two cards and then continue your instructions by informing him that he can stop the deal whenever he wishes. (Don't say, "Stop the deal on any card that he wishes.") When the spectator stops the deal, note whether he has a "10" card face up on the table. If so, have him place the face up card to one side. If the face up card that he stopped on is not a "l0", instruct the spectator to deal the top card of the deck face down to one side (This makes sense later, in the context of a Blackjack hand.). In either instance you've forced a card with the value of l0.

Because of the manner in which the deck is stacked, the spectator will never notice anything unusual about the order of the cards since the "l0's" cards are alternated with odd cards. It's this principle which makes the force so effective. The spectator sees the cards as they're dealt, but since you've never mentioned the word "Blackjack," the values of the cards have no meaning to the spectator. Naturally, you time your instructions so that, the spectator has dealt past the first three "odd" cards and is into the stacked part of the deck where you've got a comfortable 31 card sequence that allows you to force two cards, each with a value of "l0." I might also point out that it's a good idea to interlace the four tens throughout the 31 card stack to help to disguise the alternating odd card/court card arrangement.

Have the spectator continue dealing the cards face up on the previously dealt face up cards. Again, the spectator is told that he may stop at "any time that he wishes." When he stops, if the last card dealt face up is a "l0", have it placed aside as follows: If the first card was placed aside face up, then have the spectator place the second chosen card face down on the first card. This is to approximate the appearance of the traditional Blackjack hand which has one card face up and one face down. If the spectator has stopped on an "odd" card, simply have him deal the next card (which has a value of l0) face down on the previously selected card. Either way, you end up with the required force of a Blackjack hand with the value of "20."

All that remains is to have your three predictions read aloud and acknowledge the applause. At this point you pick up the wine glass and allow the three folded slips to drop out onto the table. Naturally, this makes it impossible for anyone to know that the slips weren't in numerical order. As though you hadn't noticed which number was selected, ask the spectator to call aloud the number he freely spun to on the roulette wheel. When he's done so, have him open and read aloud the prediction which is conveniently marked with a bold no. "1." You're l00% correct.

Ask the spectator to call out the total of the dice which he earlier tossed on the table. Have the slip marked no. "2" opened and read aloud. Bingo! Lastly, ask the spectator to reveal the total of the blackjack hand (this is the first time you've mentioned the name of the game) which he freely dealt to himself. Have the third and final prediction read aloud and take your well deserved bow.
