"The Los Angeles Open" by Gordon Bean
Marketed effect, 2003
Back in 2003 Gordon Bean put out an effect titled Joker, Joker which was a bit of a so-what card effect. The bonus effect, however, is something else. It is one of the cleanest, most direct versions of the ‘Open Prediction’ plot released to date. It’s not a purist’s version, but when the effect is this good who cares! So check out your next magic club auction, and if you see this available, snap it up.
