Open Prediction Question

Postby Michael Close » January 27th, 2017, 9:10 am

A question for the hive mind.

Who came up with the method for Open Prediction that uses a deck roughed on the faces and a double-face card? I'm drawing a blank on this.

Thanks for you help.

I am only aware of The Ultimate Open Prediction created by Frank Velasco and put out by Mark Strivings.

In Expert Card Conjuring (1968), Marlo has a version page 118 entitled Ultra Open Prediction in which you have a double face card and a disk of Stick -Tack but not all the deck roughed. It's a good variante.

Open Prediction (12th) in Stick s & Stones no 7, 1977. Another version by Ed Marlo with a full deck roughed and a double faced card.

Sounds interesting. But where do you put the D/F so that it doesn't get exposed in the deal but still ends up near where it's supposed to be?

At the beginning, in your lap.

I know. It's no longer modish!

Although it does not use rough and smooth, a related and very strong effect is "Los Angeles Open", by Gordon Bean. It appeared in his marketed "Joker Joker".
