-The idea here is estimating the cut while someone ​notes a card, then having him deal the deck into several piles and his identifying ​which pile contains his card. At this point you can narrow the selection to one of a few possibilities and use outs to locate the precise card. This trick was described by Hubert ​Elliot ​in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​38774/​The+Magazine+of+Magic/​50|The Magazine of Magic]]//, Vol. 4 No. 4, Sep. 1916, p. 50.+The idea here is that of estimating the depth at which someone ​returns ​noted card in the deck, then having him deal the deck into several piles.

Elliott'​s trick requires the deck to be dealt into six piles and used two outs.
  
-Elliot'​s trick required the deck to be dealt into six piles, with two outs. Abbott'​s later  marketed "The Last Word '​Certain'​ Card Trick",​ 1934, which dealt the deck into four piles, ​with three outs. This trick was shortly thereafter included in Glenn Gravatt'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​17459/​Encyclopedia+of+Self+Working+Card+Tricks/​17|Encyclopedia of Self Working Card Tricks]]//, 1936, p. 16, as "The Card Miracle '​Certain.'"​ Gravatt mentions a forebear by Tommy Tucker, "The Card Miracle,"​ in Chas Eastman'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​18519/​Expert+Manipulative+Magic/​20|Expert Manipulative Magic]]//, 1933, p. 19, which uses a more traditional estimation principle, but not the dealing strategy. Tucker palmed off a six-card range and produced the selection from his pocket.
