You bring out an envelope and remove three $100 casino chips which you place on the table. Now you show three cards: two are black spot cards, and the middle card is a red Queen. Without any moves, you lay the three cards face down on the table. The spectator is invited to bet $100, however, there is a twist to this betting game. If he finds the lady you promise to pay him $100. However, if he picks a spot card, you will double the stake and promise to pay $200 if he finds the lady on a second attempt. Again, if he picks a spot card you will now give him $300 if he finds the lady. So it is in the spectator’s interest NOT to pick the Queen!
In the end, all three cards prove to be spot cards. The lady is found inside the envelope. You get to keep your money. The spectator can keep the cards because they are ungaffed. Easy to do.
Includes a template to print your poker chips. Also includes a simplex version with no poker chips.
