Dunbury Delusion is a classic card routine credited to Charlie Miller in Expert Card Technique where the audience is led to believe the magician has initially failed.

Plot: A card having been chosen and returned to the pack without the magician knowing what was selected. The magician removes three cards stating they will help him find the selected card, but the spectators notice that one of them IS the selected card thinking that the magician has already failed. However, after turning the 3 cards face down, the magician triumphantly produces the chosen card from the pack, the card which was down on the table changed to an indifferent one.

The first known version of this plot was published as The Partagas Sell in Farelli's Card Magic Part Two, which was developed by Senor Partagas, a magic shop owner in Barcelona, Spain.

It's been said that Charlie Miller named it Dunbury after the Dumbarton Bridge that crosses San Francisco Bay.
