During his heyday in 1950, Lucky Murphy was a professional gambler who traveled the world, fleecing suckers and operating every scam going.
Throughout his journeying, this con artist extraordinaire retained a passion for collecting cards... Hotel advertising cards.
People say he was incredibly and inexplicably lucky. When he visited one hotel in particular, however, his luck was set to turn...
You hand a spectator a small bag that functions as a prediction, before bringing out twenty or so hotel advertising cards, which you also give to your spectator. While you turn away, she runs through the cards, one at a time. She chooses one, and slips it into her pocket... You turn to face her again, and promptly reveal the hotel she has chosen...
You decide to take the experiment a little further. The spectator takes back the packet of advertising cards and again stops on any she wants. You invite her to open the prediction bag, and inside she finds an old hotel room key-from the hotel she has just selected...
