    1. Kevin says:

      Only if the trick is routined in such a way that there is not much heat on the two cards. If you just openly place two cards in the table at the wrong moment people will be able to see the thickness.

      1. mr beak says:

        I agree with that, you must direct attention away form the card(s). If you said, “I will place one card here” you will fail. Also, if your handling of two cards is natural and ‘matter of fact’ then spectators will not suspect. See Jerry Sadowitz’s material on the on the double deal.
