I believe there is not an Open Prediction effect as clean as possible
of this version:

Tommy:

Well done! This is strong. Hands-off.
(Nice to see a clip having a spectator involved)

If this ever comes to market?, I'm in.

Warmest regards, :)

It almost reminds me of Troy Hooser's 'Open Open Prediction' in his book DesTROYers written by Joshua Jay. In that he uses one deck and the prediction is the mate of the card the spectator deals face down in the middle of dealing the rest face up.

The only problem here is the spectator shuffles the cards then keeps them! Holy Cow is that even possible?

I was thinking about those cards. They seem about as thick and rigid as credit cards. How can anyone do anything with those plastic european cards? Well except for this fantastic prediction.

lavoro meraviglioso!

Amazing! This is the best Open Prediction ever.

Is this the legendary 51 Faces North?

I post this video here because I know
the secret and I can confirm that:

"No actors or stooges or video editing has been used"

Do you believe or not this effect is real.

If the spectator is not being prompted in some way about which card to leave face down, then I don't believe it is real. But only cause I'm not clever enough to think of how else such an effect could be possible. :)

I cannot answer this question without to expose the trick!
I can say only one thing: Do you believe or not this effect is real!
I have a reputation and I don't put nothing saying is real when this is
false. I know the trick and I can confirm again: No actors or stooges or video editing.

From youtube I read that at moment it is not for sale,
anyway ask directly the author.

Don't worry, it wasn't a question! I was only giving a condition to my answer. But ultimately I guess, I for one do believe the effect is real.

I just watched this now.

I'm late but never too late to add my opinion on this one... *** [b]good effect![/b]

The effect is only there for the audience - and you pretty much said they were cued for that video so what was the point?
Message: Posted by: Lord Of The Horses (Feb 25, 2010 05:54PM)
Uh... Jonathan, did I miss something?

I only saw the video now and already you are posting some startling revelation...

Who said they were cued and in which thread they said that?

So what's your point Mr. Townsend??

Just one of your "hit & run" maneuvers??

Offer a smirk remark and then not substantiate it??

You are not new to this ^ isn't that a habit for you??

How poor this is from you.

Incredible video/effect!!
Maybe the thickness of the card has something to do with it...
I think the effect is real, but not with a borrowed deck.
Hope Tommy will release it.

Looks pretty good!
I would buy this in a jumbo version for stage.
Message: Posted by: tourdecartes (Dec 22, 2012 02:38AM)
This is definitely the best version of the open prediction that exists.
I have trouble believing tommy when he says it is impromptu. From what I see, the girl was not chosen randomly and most probably required a decent amount of pre-talk before starting the trick.

Combining various knowledge and observations to make a "custom made trick" will bring the effect much closer from real magic than anything else.

two thumbs up

Very impressive!!!! Congratulations!!!

This is my take on the Marlo's Open Prediction plot. It's totally impromptu, instant reset, can be done FASDIU and every time is different. Sorry I have not used a spectator, but I do not know many people who speak English!!! In fact, my English is terrible, I'm sorry about that too!!!







Give me your thoughts!!! Any advise is welcome. See you!!!

What What!? nope. Fluke, cheat! Impossible... umm, the cards are all blank and your pulling a marko tempest on us! I just... what!? Nahh, You got me. Not a clue!
Message: Posted by: ltrblst (Feb 10, 2021 08:19PM)
Was Criminal Induction published then?

Is there some other performance video?

I bought all Tommy's work, he is a clever thinker, but this one is missing.

Incredible.
