Blackjack Room by Josh Zandman PDF Download
Includes contributions from Greg Arce, Neil Tobin and Richard Osterlind.
A prediction is sealed in an envelope and held by an audience member the entire presentation. No switches.
On stage; a table, 5 chairs and a deck of cards. 5 players (spectators) come up to play a hand of blackjack. Cards are shuffled by a random player and re-cased to avoid any tampering by the performer as he explains about blackjack. No false shuffles. No Sleights. One player deals a face-down card to each player followed by a face-up card.
All players are given the option to switch seats.
The performer tells about a vision he had that morning of a person playing blackjack and receiving the same hand, over and over again from the dealer. He then names out loud that exact envisioned blackjack hand; total and card names and states that he also wrote down a description of this person in a sealed envelope that an audience member now holds.
For the first time, the players are instructed to look at their face-down card. One player has that exact hand.
The audience member holding the envelope, now opens it and reads it aloud only to reveal a detailed description of the player with the exact hand the performer had envisioned, earlier that morning!
