MY FRIEND IN GLASGOW, SCOTLAND SENT THIS TO ME. I CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT. CAN YOU? TRY THIS OVER AND OVER USING DIFFERENT CARDS, IT WORKS EVERY TIME. MAYBE IT IS PROGRAMED TO KNOW THE LAST CARD YOU LOOKED AT…SPOOKY!
None of the cards in the first hand are in the second hand. Naturally, the card you chose would not be in the second hand. This was not a card trick, or a computer trick. It was a mind game. Odds are, most of us just trusted that the same face cards were in the second hand so when we saw ours was not there, we were puzzled.
He certainly knows how the masses think. Kudos for him, persimmons for me!
