I'm less sure about how he read the cards; I wonder if there's something in the table than can sense cards, as the chosen cards are held in a particular spot flush against the table for a longish time with no other cards around. The table could then transmit info directly to sound guy. Which makes sense; if Blake himself knew which cards P& T actually had, why not give the rap himself instead of playing the pre-recorded one?

As I'm pretty sure I noted on this forum, it's FAR to coincidental if it's a free choice that those are the exact cards bookending the span he collects elsewhere in the trick. I can't believe it's a free choice.
