This is a lifetime of information, acquired the hard way.
Mechanic is taught by a man who walked a fine line between death and a payday every time he picked up a deck of cards. When each move could be the difference between a five thousand dollar haul and broken ribs, you get good at using techniques proven to work... techniques that will remain undiscovered at any card table.
This DVD set is a treatise on the techniques used by Daniel Madison to put food on his table for years, as a professional card cheat caught up in the underground circles of London's criminal underbelly.
Every day and every dollar made it harder to get out of the racket he fell into - until a simple slip at the table took the decision out of his hands - and nearly cost him his life.
During the weeks in hospital Madison made the conscious decision to shift from card mechanic to Deception Artist. Now a reformed card cheat, Daniel meticulously teaches the handling, dexterity and psychology of deception with playing cards, step by step.
Over two hours of invaluable advice, theory and method taught by a man in the unique position to have lived the life, each move seized from the cold school of experience.
Daniel learned the hard way so you don't have to. Add Mechanic to your cart NOW and benefit from his hard won experience.

I had wanted this product for a while but the price always kept me from putting it the cart. After I purchased it I realized how useful it was. Though Madison's dealing technique did not work for me I was able to come up with my own dealing method based off the concepts he talks about. I use the false cuts and shuffles taught almost every day and I can now watch a trick and recreate it. rarely due products completely change the game, but for me this has been the most usefully product I've purchased.
i loved this product, although Daniel never went in depth on how to control certain cards, he explains why he doesn't in a very precise manner. Some moves within this project i will not bring to the card table (he even admits that you shouldn't), however most are very deceptive and once practiced are very difficult to get wrong. I will be using this as a resource for many years and i cant wait to master all the moves here, definitely worth the money.
I initially got this download for the false cuts, shuffles etc. with no intention to look at the false deals, because i feel that the false deals are to obvious - it's easy to see when one deals from the bottom, but the way Madison teaches this, and the thoughts and tips he has on it... It doesn't become a sleight or a move, but rather a different way of dealing, and that makes the false deals very deceptive. Great purchase, for all the fellow card-nackists.
