Hi, I'm putting out an item that is a utility device, One of the effects I have used it for is this great, old self working card effect that I have no idea where it came from. THE EFFECT: 3 predictions are laid out, the deck is given to the spectator, they take cards from the deck and only use what they choose, then they deal out three piles until they run out of cards, the tops of the piles match the predictions.
I know this is very well known and has been published many times... but I want to give proper credit etc.
Thanks!!!

You are more likely to need a source for your utility device. There have been dozens of ways to do what your utility device needs to do in order to accomplish this trick.

? No, actually the device is no problem I want to give credit to the source for the trick/effect. All I'm doing is using a new device I invented to switch out the predictions... Sorry if I didn't make myself clear. The card switching device will be used for many effects, and this is one idea I want to include in the videos and instructions, but would like to give full credit.

The trick you described sounds like Maurice Fogel's "Triple Coincidence". Eugene Burger expounds on it in his book, Mastering the Art of Magic.

Hey Donal!
I think you got it that sounds familiar... thanks! I'll of course look into it first. Thanks a bunch!

Check the Karl Fulves books of self-working card tricks, as well as some of Nick Trost's material.
