Our FaceBook page has lots of updates and videos including this amazing demonstration by this year’s Memory Champion Andrea Muzii of his memorizing a full deck of cards in 20 seconds:

Andrea Muzii demonstrates memorising a full deck in 20 seconds!It was amazing to see and film this in person. It took him 20 seconds to scan a randomly shuffled deck. Then he took an ordered deck an arranges it to match the shuffled deck, and verifies that the order is correct. Andrea won 9 out of 10 discplines at this year's Mind Sports Olympiad Memory competition!
