Us He Leads the effect of any cards that may have stuck together and were not meant to be stripped, feel for more cards until you are certain all have been separated, always reversing whatever cards you strip as well as turning them end for end.

Bring the deck forward and put it face down upon the table. Ask for the name of the chosen card and then spread the deck. All cards have to be face down except the selected pasteboard.

The effect may be built up by first having a card selected and returned, placing pack behind back, and saying that you will try to locate the card by reversing it. The deck is brought forward, card named, and when the deck is spread out it is seen as one of the face up cards. Spectators will be quick to accuse that all you had to do was turn the deck over behind your back, which, confidentially, is exactly what you did. To convince the skeptics (?), you repeat, and this time the reversal is more than anticipated.

2nd Methods This doesn't need the stripper deck, but serves as a good excuse for a standard switch of a deck. Reverse one card in a deck's center, remember its name, and put deck under your belt at back. Bring the same card to the top of a duplicate deck that's in use. First, shuffle the cards keeping the top card in place. Divide deck in half and turn the bottom half face up. Riffle shuffle the halves together, seeing to it that the first face-up card goes directly atop the original top card. Note this face-up card and cut deck at about middle.

Start to spread the cards and invite someone to s-elect one of those face-down. By looking for the face-up card you noted, it becomes an extremely easy matter to force the card right below it.' The forcing is super-simplified, because the person has to look for and take a face-down card. (Even if you should xail, you can resort to the aforementioned gag and then repeat it indefinitely.)

After the spectator replaces the card and shuffles the deck place it behind your back. Merely drop it into a hip pocket and remove the other deck from belt. Bring it forward, and when the card is named spread the packet of pasteboards to show the named card reversed.
