An effortless Open Prediction effect!
You bring a red backed prediction out of your pocket along with a blue backed deck of cards.
"Have you ever been in a situation in which you regretted not following your first intuition? Intuition is a very intriguing concept for scientists and psychologists. It provides us with beliefs that we cannot necessarily justify. Today, we're going to re-enact one of those experiments and hopefully this may lead to a successful ending."
You deal the cards face down one by one on the table as you ask the spectator to tell you to stop when she 'feels' it is the right moment. You mark the spot with the prediction exactly where the spectator stops you. You now reveal that your prediction was the Queen of Hearts. You explain that you waited to show any of the faces because you didn't want to unexpectedly influence her choice. But obviously, she may think that the cards are all Queens of Hearts. You spread the deck and table the prediction along with the spectator's selection under it. You turn the deck face up and show that every card is indeed different. You reveal the spectator's selection: It is also the Queen of Hearts.
Note: Not a single sleight is required. It may be examined after a really simple, logical and IN FULL VIEW move.

This is a fantastic Open Prediction that's easy to do and packs a wallup. For $3 this is a steal. I first saw it performed on Unbiased Reviews YouTube channel and saw how strong it was and had to get it. 5 stars from me. I perform it on my channel and will post a link here if that's OK. If that's not allowed feel free to delete it.
