Hi all,
I have recently seen a few videos online of people doing tricks where on spectator picks a card and another is able to name it with no (apparant) magicians choice, no (apparant) switches, and no (apparant) stooges. For example on Simon Blacks ATT Lecture he performed a trick in which Greg Wilson cut the cards several times under the table and took the top two, placing them in his back pocket(s) without knowing their identities. It was possible for Simon to know the cards (through a method he discusses in the Lecture, but somehow he is able to get Greg to name the correct card. The only method I could think of is that Greg was stooged, but Simon (apparantly) performs the trick the same way for laymen. Does anyone have any insight into this? Any books/DVD's to check out that may help me?
Thanks,
Charlie

Obviously nothing like that can be sure-fire, but it's still fun to play around with

This reminds me of one of my favorite moments of mentalism on tv.
Most of you probably know it. I have to watch the whole show at least once a year.

That is exactly the effect Simon Black performed, except he did it where the spectator named one of the cards in their pocket, then he named the other through mnemonica

Canasta was truly a 'remarkable man'! Wonderful.

Sounds like the effect from Osterlinds Mind Mysteries.

Not the exact one I think OP mentioned, but at Blackpool this year Fraser Parker showed me a psychological card force which I was very impressed with, although I have no clue what it is called or where it is published.

Cslagem,
I think you can look into psychological subtleties for this type of thing. I have been looking at this idea in my spare time but it doesn't seem favorable compared to other effects that ultimately accomplish the same thing in the minds of the spectators. It's really cool though
Humbly,

Is there anywhere we can see this? Sounds awesome.
