A deck is shuffled and 5 cards are dealt face down. A spectator is asked to pick up the cards and mentally select just one. The spectator places the 5 cards back into the pack and shuffles. The magician now pulls off a packet of about 10 cards and displays them to the spectator. This is repeated until the spectator identifies the packet containing their mentally chosen card. Each card from that packet is then laid face down on the table. The magician moves his hands over the cards and eliminates cards one by one until only one remains. The spectator is then asked to name their mentally selected card. The only remaining card on the table is turned over to reveal a perfect match.
