Best Card Tricks Revealed - THE SLIPPED CARD

Ascertain the bottom card of the pack; hold the cards in your left hand, with their faces downwards.
Place your right hand upon them, and with your right fore-finger slide them slowly over each other, asking some one to stop any card he chooses, by putting his finger upon it. When he has done so, open the pack at that card, but while opening it, make the pass, and bring the bottom card under the one touched.
Hold up the cards, and ask the chooser to be sure of his card; hand all the cards to him, and let him shuffle as much as he chooses.
Afterwards discover the card in any manner that you prefer. The following is a good plan.
