That's My Card!

(Van Buren, AR)
THE EFFECT: Tell a friend to pick a card and replace it in the deck. Give the deck a few cuts, then reveal their card!
THE SECRET: Get a deck of cards and secretly memorize what card is on the bottom. Tell a friend to pick any card and to not show it to you. Then tell him/her to put it on top of the deck. Give the deck one cut, then complete the cut (by splitting half of the deck to one side then placing the bottom half on top).
This is where the former bottom card comes in. Give the deck a few more cuts and complete them. This does not shuffle the cards at all but it looks like they are being mixed.
To locate their card all you have to do is search through the deck and whatever is under the former bottom card will be their card!
TIP: If you want to you can pass their card, while searching then go back to seem more legit.
