Variant's Variant by Allan Ackerman

This routine was first published in Allan's book Here is my Card. The four kings are shown. A deuce is placed under the top king of the four king packet. Magically the deuce rises to the top. Then the deuce is placed third from the top but it still manages to rise to the top. Then it is placed fourth and finally fifth but it always rises to the top. In the end the deuce changes to a king and the four kings change to the four deuces.
