It is important the cards are kept in the same position and are not to be shuffled around during this counting. While the person is doing this you can turn your back so that you can not see what they are doing while at the same time still counting.

Name the Card

After they have finished you turn around then take the deck and place it behind your back, count off 19 cards, reversing their order, and then place them back on the top of the deck.
Bring the deck back in front of you and ask the person the number from 1-10 that they originally thought of in the beginning. Begin your count with that number which was chosen and deal each card out one at a time. When you reach 20 cards let that person name their card as you turn it over.
