Default The Method.

this is what you do:

as you deal out the cards, do exactly what you ask your volunteer to do!

(with one proviso - when you are choosing your first card try to choose a low numbered card in about the first five dealt)

when you reach your last possible card that will be your guess of his last card

the mathematical probability when you do this increases from the random 1 in 10 guess to your being correct 7 times out of 10!

(use two decks shuffled together and you will be correct an amazing 90% of the time)

there has to be a bet there somewhere
