Grand Master of Memory
Until the 2013 World Memory Championships, the requirements for Grand Master of Memory were:
- Memorize 1,000 numbers in an hour
- Memorize 10 decks of cards in an hour
- Memorize one deck of cards in under two minutes
Grandmaster of Memory (GMM) can now only be awarded at the World Memory Championships. To achieve the GMM both of the following criteria must be met:
Achieve a total of 5000 or more cumulative points in the WMC.
GMM titles will be awarded to the top 5 placed competitors that are not already GMMs
People who were awarded the Grand Master of Memory title under the older standards will still maintain their titles for life.
