Display the cards. The photo shows what spectators see. Remember, as explained in step two, you are secretly holding an extra card behind the others that are fanned at the back of the deck.
Ask the spectators to select a card by pointing at individual fanned cards and saying "one," “two" or "three," as in the picture.
More specifically, the apparent first fanned card (which is actually the second card) is designated "one." The apparent second fanned card (which is actually the third card) is designated "two." And the apparent third fanned card (which is actually the fourth card) is designated "three."
Ask the spectator to remember the card based on the number.
After the spectator selects a card by naming a number, you gather the cards on top of the deck and allow the unseen and secret first card to stay on top.
