....to no avail.

After trying it much becomes apparent but not the final answer.

I tried it 5 times and it worked every time!

You have 11 - A cards in the first block, 11 - B in the second and 11 - C in the third, or 33 - (A + B + C) in the total.

Since there are 52 cards in the deck, the remaining cards are 52 - [33 - (a + B + C)] or 19 + A + B + C.

You discard 19 cards from the remaining. You have A + B + C cards.

You uncover the top cards of the first and third blocks (A and C).

You separate A + C cards from the remaining and you get B, the top card of the center block.

Notice he doesn't shuffle the stacks, so it may involve some math shenanigans, but its also a memory trick possibility.

I just tried it both ways, and both ways work (math and memory)

The best part of the trick though is using the formula and telling the person you are showing the trick exactly what you are doing the whole way through. The average person will be just as baffled, if not more so. Every person I have shown it to has believed I was pulling a fast one on them even though I told them at the beginning it was purely a trick of math.
