Here is a handling of a Edward Marlo effect where a card is freely selected and shuffled into the pack. The spectator cuts the pack and the card cut to is noted and you proceed to countdown from that card to the exact number that is relevant to the card that was cut to.
Let’s say you cut to a seven. You would deal off the next seven cards and that card is the selected card. A real fooler. The only basic skill required. Marlo always has very clever handling and a lot of it is not a difficult skill level because it is just so well thought out.
