More:

A magician performs the following card trick. She asks a volunteer to secretly select a number between 1 and 10 and deal out that many cards from a well-shuffled deck of52 standard playing cards. The last card dealt determines a new number of cards to be dealt from those remaining: if it is an ace, the new number is 1; if it is Jack, Queen orKing, the new number is 5; otherwise the new number is the face value of the card.The process is repeated until there are not enough cards left in the deck to continue.The magician then identifies the last card selected.

The trick is that the magician repeats the process starting with the number 1. This will usually (but not always) result in selecting the correct final card, no matter what number the volunteer originally selected
