Color Monte


The Magician relates how the lost bet after bet with a clever gambler using 3 cards. Two cards with a red spot and one with a blue spot are shown. Trying to guess where the blue spot is, the Magi “loses” a dollar each time (the cards change to all blue spots, change back to red spots, etc). After seven amazing changes, Magi has “lost” $7.00. He puts one red spot and one blue spot card on the table and asks what color remains. No matter what is said – last card is turned over showing $14.00 printed on it!
