Dunbury Delusions by Jon Racherbaumer
"It is one of the very best tricks which can be done for close-up work." - Hugard and Braue from Show Stoppers With Cards

From the Foreword:

The Dunbury Delusion has an illustrious pedigree that has been up, down, and all around the magic scene for at least 100 years. Charlie Miller's method that was published in Expert Card Technique in 1940, more or less branded his name on it, but seven year earlier Victor Farelli published a modified version ("The Partagas Sell") in Farelli's Card Magic. He did not claim paternity but credited a Spanish magician named Partagas who apparently taught him the trick in 1908.

Basic Plot:

A selection "lost" in a deck is successfully found by using three clue cards to determine the selection's identity and location in the deck. The "sucker" aspect comes into play when, unbeknownst to the performer, one of the "clue cards" turns out to be the selection and is prematurely and inadvertently taken out of play. Because the spectator realizes this fact his foreknowledge becomes a psychological tensor point. The tables are apparently turned. For a change the spectator is the one having secret knowledge and the performer is a potential victim on the verge of being raised by his own petard.
