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 and a half 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.
Disclaimer: This is not a DVD on Card Tricks. This is detailed teaching of the actual skills used to illegally and unethically win money in illicit card games through the use of cheating. As study of this material has the potential to turn you into a successful card cheat, we must ask that any use of these techniques at the card table be for entertainment purposes only. Neither Daniel Madison nor Ellusionist can be held responsible for the consequences of cheating or unlawful gambling.
I have always been a fan of this man's work since I first saw him. But Mechanic takes all that and well simply put he moves from great card man to god like status. Now that fan-boy is done this is worth every penny spent. His instructions I found very easy to follow. The editing perfect and as always the magic even if you only use one from this you got something special now for your performances.
awesome dvd love the sale Ellusionist gave me. improved my false deals and false shuffles immensely. only reason why it is four stars is i wish it taught the center deal
'Mechanic' is simply put, incredible. While it doesn't quite feel worth the price, the DVD's are very informational not just with the sleights taught, but with the psychology behind them. I am able to follow his teaching easily and learn the moves for myself. However, one thing that confuses me is he foreshadows events that never happen. I.e. before learning the Muck Shun, he states that he will teach several methods of switching cards, but he only shows one. He also mentions the center deal a couple of times but never teaches it. Hopefully I'm not the only one who feels sort of cheated (HA, see what I did there?!)
Regardless, I do not regret this purchase. Anyone wanting to learn card cheating mechanics from raw experience should purchase these DVD's.
