Hi there, I heard of a trick in passing that I thought sounded cool and would be interested in, but didn't catch the name of. I believe it's done by a man named Paul V Hill, or some variant of that. It's where a magician and a spectator each pull a card out of an ordinary deck, each thinks of a card, the magician is thinking of the spectator's card and the spectator is thinking of the magician's. It's purchased somewhere online as a pdf, and if there's anyone out there who thinks they know what I'm talking about I'd greatly appreciate the help. Thanks a ton!

This is an effect known as the "Do As I Do" card effect. There are many variations on this theme, but the effect is just what you mention.

You and a spectator, each has a deck of cards, you each select a card, exchange decks, pull out the card you were thinking of and, by magic, they match.

Great effect and gets good reactions.

You can perform this trick very easily with a marked deck.
