Three Card Monte [DVD] [Whit Haydn and Chef Anton]

$55.95

Three-Card Monte contains close to three hours of video on two discs, including fine-point instruction in all the major moves, psychology, and misdirection used in the monte, plus a three-camera shoot on the street of a re-enactment of Cracker Parker’s London mob scam, an interview with Gazzo discussing the methods of the London Mob, and actual footage of three-card monte being played on the streets in Khiva, Uzbekistan. The DVD also contains Anton’s complete presentation and explanation of Three-Card Gold, an excellent, unique exhibition routine created by Chef and Whit Haydn. Also on this DVD are appearances by Gazzo, R. Paul Wilson, and Doc Eason discussing their original handlings of the climax of the monte in exhibition, as well as a unique contribution to the bent corner ruse from Ron Wohl. Haydn demonstrates and explains Bob Kohler’s incredible ending for the monte, called Knifed! In this sensational ending, the performer has the spectator hold on to a quarter of the Ace, and pin the rest of the Ace face down with a pocketknife. Even so, the Ace escapes. The spectator ends up holding on to a quarter of the Joker, and the penknife is stuck firmly through three-quarters of a Joker! Bob has worked out every detail of this ending to make it practical, certain, and a real killer. Further, both DVD’s can be opened in a computer as data discs. Inside is found a complete non-printable e-book (.pdf file) version of the most recent edition of the book on the Three-Card Monte. This e-book contains over 160 pages and more than 180 photos and illustrations, and contains a ton of material on the patter, psychology, moves, glossary, history, and application to magic of Three-Card Monte. Most authorities consider this e-book to be the best resource on the monte to date! Both the DVD and CD-ROM portions are meant to provide the student of Three-Card Monte with the most complete, accessible, and illuminating resource on the game ever offered. Much of the information contained in this set is original and/or unpublished. Whether you are a magician, gambling expert, historian, a true “Expert” on the game this two-volume DVD is for you!
