One of the easiest fundamental "tricks" I know is to learn how to shuffle so that the card at the bottom of the deck stays there. While shuffling, just take a peak at the bottom card of the deck. Shuffle so that it stays there, then do any trick that involves picking or marking a card. If you set it up properly, you'll be able to use the bottom card as a key.

Don't know any card tricks, but bring your money to the Hold 'Em (or 7 card stud) table and I'll make your chips disappear. B-)
