Tell the Joker
We are going to do something a bit different this time with the Joker, we will use it to reveal a card in a trick we call "Tell the Joker".
Arrange the deck in the Si Stebbins stack, where each card is three points higher than the one before, and the cards are in the following order Clubs, Hearts, Spades, Diamonds. Just remember the mnemonic word...CHaSeD.
The value of the cards are face value Ace= 1 to 10, then Jack is 11, Queen is 12 and King is 13. So starting from top down, the order would be: Ace - 4 -7 - 10 - 13 - 3 - 6 - 9 - 12 - 2 - 5 - 8 - 11. In the CHaSeD order the cards would be as follows:
Ace of Clubs - 4 of Hearts - 7 of Spades - 10 of Diamonds - King of Clubs - 3 of Hearts - 6 of Spades - 9 of Diamonds and so on...
While performing, if you were to cut the deck and look at the bottom card, lets say it was a 5 of Hearts, by the Si Stebbins Stack, you would realize that the top card would be the 8 of Spades. What you do, is hand the Joker to the spectator and have them whisper the name of their card into the King's ear. You then take the card back and make your revelation. Look up the Si Stebbins Stack and you will be doing apparent miracles shortly.
