Scotty Johnston: The Shoe She Connection: The spectator removes a card from a shuffled pack. The selected card is placed face down to one side. The spectator then randomly deals three piles of cards. When he has finished doing this he chooses any pile he wishes. The top card of the chosen pile is turned face up and is shown to be a King. The original chosen card is turned face up and is shown also to be a King. The two cards on top of the other two piles on the table are then also turned face up they are also Kings. The performer offers to try the trick once more. The Kings are placed to one side and a new card is selected just as before.
