Twenty Card Prediction
Thanks Hungarian Magician

Take 20 cards from a deck of fifty two playing cards.
Ask spectator to choose any 3 cards.
In this video the cards are  9, 3 and 2.

The Secret:
While the spectator is choosing three cards, look at the third card from the bottom of the main deck.
In the video the third card is the 8 of clubs.
That card is your prediction.

Place the remaining seventeen cards under the main deck.
Make your prediction. (In this video the prediction is the 8 of clubs)
Look at the three chosen cards
Each chosen card must total 10.
(Face cards count as ten.)
9 + 1= 10
3 + 7 = 10
2 + 8 = 10
Add 9+3+2 = 14
Count 14 cards from the main deck.
Look at the prediction.
