The three step trick..
Get a person to pick a card, you don't see the card, they show the card to their friends and place it on the pack of cards on the table. You cover the card and cut the pack.
Then you tell them that you can read their body language and you will know when their card has appeared. You turn up the cards and even their card and you keep on going.. then you say, the next card is yours... you make a bet and reveal their card... you win the bet
Then you put the card back in the pack, mix the cards and cut the deck into four and put the stacks on top of each other and then finally you reveal their card again on the top of the pack
The third step is to put the cards back in the box... then you tap on the box and their card flies out of the box.
Mix the cards - let them mix the cards. Then take the pack and show the top card to the audicence. Then flip it over and put the top card in the middle of the pack. Then you start to riffle through the pack and ask them to tell you when to stop, whenever they tell you to stop you will reveal their card
