Tut tut. This isn't the place to discuss methods...that's Secret Sessions. Just enjoy Alexandre's presentation for now.

Thank you John... Sheesh- for magicians they really have small regard for "the secret"

(still wondering how he got those cards into my wallet...)

Good demo, Alexandre. I tried it a few more times today, and got several pairings. Great presentation idea.

Alexandre,
apologies if I missed your point - as you were refering to quantum and physics, I missed that out.

1st try: 1 king and 1 seven next to each other
2nd try: 2 pairs of kings and sevens.
3rd try: 1 pair of kings and sevens
4th try: 1 king, then 1 seven, then another king. which results in a king sandwhich with seven on top.
5th try: another sandwhich, 1king 1 seven, then 1 king.

hmmm... the results are interesting.
Have you Amazed?

Peter, that worked out because I was deep in meditation at the time you attempted it.

Strong stuff! Smile

First try, King of Spades next to Seven of Spades and the King of Hearts next to the Seven of Hearts! I'll be using this one. Smile

Thanks ALEXANDRE, very interesting!


Wow! Tried again, shuffled 7 times. 5 out of seven resulted in a king and seven next to each other. I shuffle one handed, I wonder if shuffling technique affects the results?

I wish John Scarne were alive for a consultation-he could figure the odds out pretty quickly.
I've read this somewhere in a magic book, but unfortunately can't remember which. Anyway, the odds of this occurring are actually pretty favorable.

This is almost the same as assembling a group of 30 or 35 people. Odds are that two of them share the same birthday, but odds are that someone shares *your* BD aren't so good. (This is covered in one of Scarne's books.)
