A non-card related item from the mind of Harry Lorayne!

Thanks Tom! Best of all, it’s very easy to do and doesn’t require difficult math (otherwise I couldn’t do it).

I was playing along with my eyes closed and I guessed.... 6! Like Tom I'm anxious to discover the secret to this one. Especially since it requires little math!

No guessing necessary :)

I actually new her selected number immediately and had to pretend to be thinking 🤔

Thanks for taking time to watch it, Anthony and Tom!

Rudy, we both have the same taste regarding magic effects!

This one is one of my all time favorites!
Sometimes, if a piece of paper is handy, I let them choose a third three digit number that has no restrictions (this sounds good at the summary at the end and...doesn´t affect the method anyways!)...this produces a greater number with more digits to choose from, so I let them jot down the number, circle the chosen one, and then (as some kind of ritual to eliminate the digits from their mind...so they can think more clearly of their chosen number...) let them name the other numbers out loud with closed eyes and then they have to cross out the named number.
I know, it is more procedural than your presentation but sometimes I just want to add the really freely chosen number (they can even cheat and choose a four digit number or whatever, doesn´t matter; thanks to Harry for this fine piece of magic!!!).

And again, what a smooth performance you did! Excellent work, my friend!

Stay healthy,

Axel

So Rudy . . . I guess you're going to just leave us math guys mesmerized with this effect. Count me as one of those that is fooled by the methodology. [smile]

Very nice!!!

Can you provide the source . . . thx!

Hi Mark!

Perhaps I may help out. It is in Harry´s Mathematical Wizardry besides many more awesome routines or in L:TCC Vol.5 ...and I think it is also availlable as an e-book.

Have fun with it!

   That's why the kinda' subtitle of Mathematical Wizardry is "How to make everyone think you're a genius when you're not!"

   Yeah, I still have some copies of MW and L:TCC, 5 for sale!!

Axel! I had no idea that this was possible! I will try it this way.

I learned it from Apocalypse. The additions that you're speaking of aren't mentioned there.

As Harry said, you can make folks believe that you're a math whiz with this stuff!!

Thanks.

Impressive result without computational complications. And Axel's approach is really a killer.

In addition, it provides a nice algebraic exercise for my students. What else?
