Hi,
I have an effect based on a (complicated) stack which work with any face value chosen by the spectators, except one. As an out, the four cards for this particular value are fortunately on top and one can go for another effect exploiting four cards of a kind already stacked on top of a deck.

In order to be able to perform the originally intended effect afterwards, the "out" solution should not be too complicated as the original effect is quite self running AND it should keep the deck in order.

Of course one could make some false shuffles/cuts let a spectator take the top card, do again some false cuts and continue in this way, but maybe there are more interesting things to do, possibly in the hands of the spectators ?


Thanks in advance

Check out HaLo Aces. One slight change and it'd fit perfectly.

No, setup for something like "A spectator freely chose a face value which they feel connected to. The four mates are turned over by the spectators and they perform free cuts between these face-up cards.
After memorizing the chosen cards of the bottom of the cuts and putting back their cuts, the spectators take out the face-up cards. Then the magician, after a final shuffle of the deck, asks the spectators to spell the face-up cards while dealing; the four selections are recovered."

See Card College 5, the effect Giobbi calls Thompson's Aces.
