Marc Oberon Lecture: Report

Marc Oberon from Nottingham, England opened the lecture by performing his award winning contest act done to music. He did not explain the act completely but he did explain some interesting sleeving techniques used during the act. Next Marc went into a demonstration of the Master Deck. With the Master Deck he was able to instantly produce any card called for. He concluded the Master Deck session with ‘Any Card at Any Number’.

The second half of the lecture had more emphasis on mentalism. He began with an interesting chair prediction with an explanation of the subtleties that make it pretty sure-fire. Marc also gave a quick demonstration of two of his marketed effects Bang On and Oddball.
