I will post a Magic act performed by the magician Dynamo.

In round one it is up to my opponent to accept the challenge before I present the trick, once accepted, my opponent must explain in round two how Dynamo managed to pull of the stunt, if however my opponent has no explanation of how the act was achieved, it will be conceded that it was indeed magic and no trick.

Round 3 is for closing arguments.

Note, I believe Dynamo does not lay claim to real magic, but if it can not be found out how the trick was done, then for the sake of the debate, it will be classed as real magic.

Best of Luck

I have no idea, It seems he placed the single bet before the euros and is confirmed by the bookmaker paddy power, he then handed the bet to ITV production studios who kept it lock shut in a safety box. Until the tournament was over, he then went live on TV to reveal how he predicted the correct outcome of seven matches including some score draws. It accumulated at odds of 10000/1.

I have no idea how he did it, I can only assume the ITV production company were in on the stunt, other than to claim it is real magic, it seems the only logical conclusion. Proving it however is another story.

Thanks for trying, this has boggled my mind.
