This is the classic ESP matching effect. Two sets of ESP cards are introduced, one of which is handed to your spectator. You begin by placing one of your cards sight unseen onto the table, and the spectator follows this by placing one of their cards next to yours. This is repeated with the four remaining cards; each time the mentalist’s card is placed down first. Despite the odds the mentalist appears to have predicted the exact order that the spectator would deal their cards. Everything may be left for examination!
The handling I present in this ebook was independently created by my good friend David Humphrey in 1985 and was subsequently included on my Submodalities DVD, which was released in 1990. This was also included within my "A Piece of My Mind" book and also includes the extra addition to the routine which was included in there too.
Whilst I am not suggesting that this is the method Derren uses, you can get an idea of what this effect looks like by watching this wonderful clip of Derren in action - https://youtu.be/YhXTqTPuGQ4
A Special thanks go to Dave for allowing MindFX to release this as an independand pdf.
Note: This effect requires the use of ten marked ESP cards. Subtly marked business cards could also be used for impromptu presentations too.
