the trick is to place the cards at position 6,22,38 from the top when you start going up-down.....after that just follow the cards....the always end up at even position.

everything at the beginning is just to confuse you.

there's no mathematical explanation necessary for this whatsoever. every time you put the cards in the exact spot that will end up as the last three after dropping the first four from the top. pretty simple...

While cutting the deck does nothing and putting the first 4 cards to the bottom may seem useless, there is a difference between magic and math. I prefer the math but magic has some show to it. So while some steps appear useless for it to work, the steps that involve cutting the deck and adding 4 to the bottom will throw just casual observers from understanding how it works. Most people understand that cutting the deck will "mix up" the deck and putting 14 down first is easier to catch on to than putting 10 down and then moving 4 more down to the bottom as well. Good trick and I enjoyed figuring it out.

why not just make the first pile 14 instead of 10? The trick would still work out and you wouldn't have to put 4 from the top to the bottom of the deck after the spectator cuts the piles. There would be 5 cards left instead of the 9 that would go on top since 4 of them are already on the first pile, soon to be the bottom of the deck. Since the piles are cut prior to one of the spectator's cards are placed on it, the spectator's cards will be the same number of cards away from each other as though the spectator didn't cut the piles at all. The spectator's cards will be 16 cards away from each other the first time through the deck, 8 the second time, 4 the third, 2 the fifth, and 1 (the only cards left) on the final time through the deck. The last spectator's card needs to be 6th from the top of the deck, so 5 cards are placed on top of it. This will ensure that this sequence will happen as long as the first card is flipped over.

Regardless, it's a fun little trick to do and people you do it to are amazed every time. :)
