Close-up card magic doesn’t get any more direct than this:
A spectator names a card.
A deck is spread between the magician’s hands, and the named selection is seen face-up among the rest of the face-down cards.
The spread is then raised, revealing every other card in the pack to be blank.
David Regal’s latest close-up winner comes complete with the specially prepared Bicycle deck and detailed, photo-illustrated instructions.
