Axel Hecklau

Well, you did it again Brent! Axel's lecture was one of the best in your series of lectures. Everything he performed was a winner and that doesn't happen at lectures very often. His "Newsflash" newspaper tear drew the most astonishing reaction that most magicians can only hope to generate!...

Re: Studio City's FIRST Lecture of 2009

I don't think I have ever seen a technical lecture blended so well with a funny and fast paced performance demonstration of those techniques. Arthur is a great guy and as previously stated, a deep, deep thinker! If you wanted to go and didn't, you sure misssed a GOOD ONE! Great lecture, thanks Brent!

Re: What is this card "move" called?

It is called the "Double Prediction," and is routine number 59 in Scarne on Card Tricks by John Scarne, 1950. It is a very deceptive move; I currently have a routine marketed as the "Devil's Doorway" that features this move.
