President's Open House 2010-2

How'd he do that? Penn State Performing Magicians President Ravender Virk wows his audience with a card trick in which he directed Rich Gabel, left, Sue Gabel, Abby Johnson and Karen Johnson each to take "10 cards" from the deck he was holding. After they each cut what they estimated to be about 10 cards, he informed them that their estimates must have been off, because if they each had taken 10 cards, he would be holding only 12 cards and he had more than that. However, he then told them they did, indeed, each take 10. When he directed them to turn over their piles, they discovered that they each cut the deck so that a 10-card was on the bottom. Virk was entertaining visitors to the President's Open House on Friday afternoon, Oct. 1. The event is part of Parents & Families Weekend at Penn State University Park.
