After drinks

This is the trick of the mind!!

The audience is given two cards. They look at them, but the magician doesn´t see them. The audience inserts the cards into the deck, and without shuffling, the magicians throw the deck, but somehow manages to pick up the two cards, holding them up in the front of the audience.

You prepare the deck this way- pick two cards of different suits, but the same color, such as the 8 of spades, and the 3 of clubs. These are the cards you are going to give to the audience. Next pick the opposites of the cards - the 8 of clubs and the 3 of spades. These are the cards you will fool your audience with. Put the opposite cards at the top and bottom of the deck - 8 of clubs on top, 3 of spades on bottom. And the real cards both go on top.
Without too much explanation, deal the two top cards out, face down, and let the audience look at them. Next let them insert the card back into deck.
Make sure they can see that you are not doing anything to the deck. Hold the deck between your thumb on top and your fingers on the bottom. Swing the deck back and forth a few times, make sure they can´t see the bottom card, though! Perhaps you count 1, 2, 3 and then throw the deck.
As you throw the deck, hold onto the top and bottom card with your thumb and middle finger. Immedately hold the cards up for all to see.
It helps if you position yourself so that audience doesn´t turn their heads around to watch where you threw the cards.
They picked the 8 of spades, 3 od clubs - but you are holding the 8 of clubs, 3 of spades. It´s very rare that anybody notices. Great trick, isn´t it!
