The Talk:

Most card tricks are tricky. They victimize the viewer by marking the cards, hiding them or stacking up the deck. Sometimes, the performer uses sleight of hand to perform invisible tricks. Most of these tricks go under the title "Magic Card Tricks".

Akram will perform (on Zoom) a set of card tricks that are jaw-dropping. They all depend on logic and numerical processes. None of them are tricky. In fact, some can be performed by the viewers without intervention from the performer.

Akram will try to get viewers to perform them in front of the rest (ZOOM). After the talk, you can download the procedures for performing each of these tricks.
