You bring out a couple of blank cards. Now you cleanly write three predictions and put these three cards onto the table. Next you show a red-backed pack of cards. The cards are spread face-up on the table. Three spectators are invited to each freely push one card out of the spread. There is absolutely no force involved and all 52 cards are present!
Without any false moves you turn around your three predictions cards - you have successfully predicted all three chosen cards!
