A simple yet effective force is to have the card on the bottom of the deck. After a shuffle which leaves it still there, the deck is placed behind the back and performer asks spectator to cut off any number of cards in a bunch. Immediately this is done, the performer swings around and asks the spectator if he knows bow many cards he cut. The answer is “No” of course, and the performer states that he cannot possibly know either. He asks the spectator to take the next card from the deck and to keep it. The card has been forced by simply bringing it from bottom to top of packet when talking to spectator. During this interval the hands were out of sight and the work done.
