So it appears as the performer messed up. Nevertheless, everything straightens out magically and the card counted to is the spectator card and the card counted off are the aces.

Twisting the Aces

Twisting the Aces by Allan AckermanThis is a tremendously visual effect developed by Dai Vernon using the Elmsley Count.

If you want an even more visual twisting effect, then take a look at Waving the Aces by Guy Hollingworth.
