I've been playing around with open predictions and 'matching pair' effects - I find that some people are slightly underwhelmed by the match (as if they expect it to be the EXACT same card.)

I wondered if anyone has any opening lines to introduce this type of effect? Without giving the end of the effect away...

Good question - I've also noticed that "matching pairs" sometimes comes over a little flat. I love those kinds of tricks, certainly as a quick little opener, but get much better reactions with tricks when you get the other three matches.

What I've been working on - think of a card and fan the deck to remove it. Remark that there is one other card that matches - like the other red seven. Produce from pocket or card box. Seems how quicker, how much more impressive. I still love the idea of matches.

This isn't a "quickie", but it's one of my favorite "mates" routines.
