You Will Need :

A pack of playing cards


Before performing this cool magic trick, set up the deck as shown in video by removing the two red sevens and two black threes.

Place one black three on top of the deck and the red seven on the bottom of the deck.

Place the other seven and three on the top of the deck..


Before performing the snatch, make sure that you are holding the pack of cards in a loose grip so that the top and bottom card will slide off easily.

You can use any other numbers or face cards as long as they are two pairs of different colors.
