Focus "Four aces"in Advance, prepare the deck. Count off eight cards on top and put under them the four aces. Now ask someone from the audience to name any number from 10 to 19, inclusive, and turn the table as many cards as you say. For example, if you called the number 13, you must pass on the table 13 first cards. Then fold those two digits that form your number (1+3=4), and take those 4 cards back into the deck. The next (fifth) card is put separately without turning. The remaining cards are put on top of the deck. This procedure will repeat three more times so in total you get 4 aside card. When you open your eyes, everyone will see that there were four aces. For greater effect, let the numbers to call different people.

The rest of the cards scatter a small handful aside. Cover the glass with a handkerchief and quietly split, taking the first hand, which saw the audience.
