To begin with, there are 54 cards. That's 52 cards and 2 jokers.

Let's call the jokers J1 and J2.
J1 starts in the J1th position;
J2 starts in the J2th position.

Volunteer 1 cuts 1/3 down the pack.
Volunteer 2 cuts 2/3 down the pack.

Call the chosen cards C1 and C2. They are in the J1th and J2th position plus or minus some difference.

Say C1 is in the J1 + d1 position;
C2 is in the J2 + d2 position.

The deck has been split into three packs.
Pack 1 has size J1 + d1;
Pack 2 has size J2 + d2 - J1 - d1;
Pack 3 has size 54 - J2 - d2.

Packs are now placed in order: Pack 2, Pack 1, Pack 3.
C1 is now in the J2 + d2 position;
C2 is now in the J2 - J1 + d2 - d1 position.


Reveal the two jokers.
J1 is now in the J2 + d2 - d1 position;
J2 is now in the J2 - J1 - d1 position.

Remove the jokers. There are now 52 cards and the deck has been split into three packs.
Pack 1 has size J2 - J1 - d1 - 1;
Pack 2 has size J1 + d2 - 1;
Pack 3 has size 54 - J2 + d1 - d2.

After removing two jokers, C1 is now in the J2 + d2 - 2 position, (it is d1 down Pack 3);
After removing two jokers, C2 is now in the J2 - J1 + d2 - d1 - 1 position, (it is d2 down Pack 2).

Packs are placed in order: Pack 1, Pack 3, Pack 2.
C1 is now in the J2 - J1 - 1 position;
C2 is now in the 54 - J1 - 1 position.
