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.
Without any doubt my favourite "card mechanic" DVD ever. This is state of art.
The detail and focus put into teaching each move is outstanding. This is a great buy for anyone who is studying at any level the subtle art of card deception.
A classic masterpiece from a living legend.
A well taught guide on the art of deception. All of the moves included require a lot of practice to master. However if you are serious about wanting to learn card deception then this is the thing to get. My only problem is that there could have been more camera angles to make it easier to understand.
This is art. This is not a collection of tricks. This is deception that can never be mastered, only bettered. It will change the way you work with cards. It will twist your mind into wondering what is really possible in card magic. These are moves that you will work with forever. DM teaches more than moves, he teaches psychology of deception, the 'why' of the moves.
Yes, this can be used for card cheating. No, you shouldn't cheat at cards. DM states plainly that this is for deception and not cheating.
These are not tricks, if you're looking for a trick, go somewhere else. This is deception.
