"Wayne has created a routine that fits my needs; a clever method, direct effect and a lasting impact on my audience... I have made '3 Choice' a feature in my full evening stage show for the 2005 season."-
The wonder worker (that would be you) removes a black wallet from his pocket, flips it open and reveals three different items: a credit card, a business card, and a folded banknote. You then hand a spectator a sealed prediction. A second spectator is invited on stage to remove one of the items from the wallet (free choice here,) and hide it away one of his pockets. Once done, he is asked to take another item and hide it in another pocket. Finally, he removes and hides the last item in another pocket.
Of course, you have turned away throughout so that you have no idea which item is in which pocket. OR DO YOU??? Now, the magic begins. You are immediately able to name the whereabouts of each and every item. Not only that, you point out that you actually knew, way in advance, what the outcome of this strange experiment would be. To prove it, ask the first spectator to open the sealed prediction. They read the prediction aloud. It tells exactly which card would be in which pocket! Wow!
3 CHOICE by Wayne Dobson is an alternative routine for Visa Cabaret by Stephen Tucker and it comes complete with everything needed to perform this audience-baffling effect, including the deluxe, specially constructed leather wallet.
