A card having been chosen, the performer turns his back while the selected card is shown to the audience. This card is then returned to the pack by a spectator who shuffles the cards before handing them to the magician.
The magician requests someone to cut the pack into three piles. He then removes the three face cards and places them in a row on the table, but the spectators notice that one of them is the selected card, and thinking that the operator has made a mistake, they are secretly amused. However, the magician then produces the chosen card from the pack and upon the three cards being turned over it is seen that they are indifferent ones.
