    You draw a prediction.  They stop on any card.  It matches!

      From David Jonathan and Mark Mason comes an incredible prediction effect!  A circle is drawn on the cellophane of a card box, which you show to your spectator.  You now draw one card inside the circle, your prediction, and place the box face down.  Next, you hand the deck to your spectator and they deal the cards face up one at a time.   They can stop dealing whenever they like - they really can stop anywhere! They can even change their mind and deal more cards if want to.  The card box is flipped over to show that drawn smack bang in the middle of the circle is the exact card they stopped on Yes, it really is that clean!


      The best part?  After the performance, you are instantly reset to perform again and the outcome may be different - it's not always the same card!  There is no need to ever replace the cellophane or the box.


      The method is so clever that you will smile from ear to ear when you learn the secret.
