Back to the Future 2
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 has been holding the entire time.
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!

"If you read an effect description of 'Blackjack Room' it is simply an impossible feat. You will say: "Can't be! Where is the deception in the description?" There is none. The effect is as it reads, seemingly impossible. It uses a devious method that was completely new to me. It is a masterful invention with many uses." - Chris Wasshuber
