This effect has such a subtle method. If you want to destroy your spectator with a killer effect, this is the one. This effect is a mix of impossible location, ACAAN and impossible revelation. Joseph has often used this effect as an opener and always got great reactions. You have all the material at home to construct the deck.
You introduce a deck of cards and instruct a spectator to cut about a third of the deck and place it to the side. The card cut to is remembered by the spectator and also put aside. The spectator shuffles the part cut off and the performer shuffles the remainder of the deck. The card is returned on top of the remainder of the deck. The cut-off portion is put on top and then the reassembled deck is again cut by the spectator. The performer puts the deck into his empty pocket and retrieves two cards. One matches the value and the other matches the suit of the spectator-chosen card. Not only that, but the values of the two cards added together specify the location of the spectator-chosen card in the deck.
