An ungimmicked deck is left on the table.
The performer turns his back and instructs 3 spectators to each select a card.
When the performer turns back around, with no “fishing” or “outs”?, he tells the spectators the names of their respective selections!
Using some known principles and approaches, Patrick Reymond and Jean Boucher have come up with a handling for this impossible effect that cancels out every weakness, and Gary Ouellet put the finishing touches on a remarkable routine that requires absolutely no sleight-of-hand!
It uses an unsuspected tool that does all the work!
Here is the original advertising text from Camirand:
An effect so incredible, so baffling, and so unexplainable that, as Holmes would have said, when you take away the impossible, then what remains, however improbable, must be the correct solution. And all that remains must be mindreading. When an ungimmicked deck of fifty-two cards is on the table, and the performer, back turned or in the next room, instructs three spectators to each select a card-out of the performer’s sight-and then, upon his return and with no fishing or outs, tells the spectators the names of their respective selections, expect a hush to settle over the gathering.
