In this magic trick, a spectator selects a card and returns it to the deck. The magician attempts to find the card and narrows it down to a few options, but asks for the spectator's help. The spectator is then asked to extend their hand, palm up. The magician places a small group of cards face-down on their palm, suggesting that maybe the selected card will find the magician instead. As the spectator concentrates on their chosen card, it suddenly shoots off their palm and flies into the magician's waiting hand. To add to the surprise, the spectator is asked to look at the remaining cards on their palm, which turn out to be the four aces. This trick is self-contained and does not require any pulls or invisible thread.
The selected card flies off the spectator's palm and into the magicians hand!
A card is selected by a spectator and returned to the deck. The magician tries to find it and claims to have it narrowed down to a few cards, but will need the spectators help. The spectator is asked to extend one of their hands, palm up. The magician places a small group of cards face-down onto their palm, saying "Usually the magician finds the card, but maybe in this case the selected card will find the magician."
As the spectator concentrates on their chosen card, suddenly one card shoots off their palm and flies right into the waiting hand of the magician - it is their selection! As an added kicker, the spectator is asked to look at the remaining cards on their palm - it is the four aces.

All the cards left in the spectator's hand are immediately examinable
