The Three Amigos
Remove the four Jacks from the pack and place one Jack
face down on the top of the pack.
Start the trick by presenting three Jacks
and make up a story that they are three best buddies and couldnt stand
Continue to rant on on how one day the three amigos were lost in the desert
and the best way to seek help was to go in different directions.
The first one to get help was to come and get the others, so off they
went in their different directions.
Get the spectator to place one Jack on top of
the pack , one Jack anywhere in the middle and
the last Jack on the bottom of the pack.
Confirm with the spectator that he is happy that the Jacks
are well separated, then get him to cut the
pack ensuring that the bottom half of the pack is put on top of
the other half .
(This will bring the top and bottom jack together
with the previously placed Jack)
The cards are then turned face up from the top off the pack eventually
turning over three Jacks together near the center
to the spectators amazement.
Conclude your story that in the end the friends were good to their word
and all lived happy ever after.
