The great thing about the set is as you can see there is a load of material Simon goes through. The teaching isn't too bad, although sometimes it leaves you wanting Simon to go over it again. Simon can be funny at times, but just going through 1 DVD can get tiresome. Much of the gambling techniques you most likely won't incorporate into your magic although there are the odd few techniques you can. Some of the moves leaves you thinking there is no way anyone can be fooled by that. Overall, Simon is amazing at what he does, but don't expect this DVD to break into the tiniest detail on every technique he tries to teach you.
It's pretty good. Report this review

There is a lot of material packed into this and you probably won't use it all, but there is still some stuff that you will use. Simon does a pretty good job explaining how everything works but sometimes it can be difficult to understand. If that's that case, just rewind and watch again. False shuffles is probably the thing you'll use from this the most.

The teaching is good, not excellent. Sometimes you wish that he would go over the move one more time.
The moves themselves are great! I used some of them on my family and they were like "how the heck did you do that?!"
I got it from the school's out bonus but it's definitely worth the money!
(I would give it a 4.5 if i could)
ADD TO CART!

I got this as a free bonus and I'm glad I didn't pay for it because even though it is a great DVD Set I wouldn't see myself paying that much money to get this but the stuff he teaches you is great if you do a gambling demonstration but overall it's just ok.

There is a TON of material on these discs, but Simon is very fast when explaining them. If you're not familiar with basic card sleights I would save this for down the road. I found his presentation rather dry, and I've seen him live and he's quite entertaining so maybe it's just the studio setting. This is quite extensive and may prove a worthwhile DVD to add to your collection.

Simon Lovell certainly has real facility with cards.
As an intermediate card handler I learned some valuable handling tips for second dealing, bottom dealing and a couple of nice false shuffles, as well as solid applications of these moves.
Problems with this DVD include:
- Lovell's swift explanation of certain moves/ handlings (eg mucking), although most are explained in reasonable detail
- DVD 3 is an appalling piece of work, being a cobbled together duplication of many of the moves taught on DVDs 1 and 2, together with Simon's laughable 'gambling museum'.
- Rob Stiff. What an irritating man.
As a Coolbox purchase, certainly value for money. Otherwise, perhaps search around for an alternative...

You will be disappointed if you think you'll learn a gambling "routine" here. I found value only in learning a small number of false shuffles and cuts.
This probably would have been better released as a magic dvd, the "theme" of gambling is pretty non-existent. You learn a few standalone moves (some which I actually find very clever and valuable).
Best for someone looking for false cuts and shuffles.
There are better solutions for learning the fundamentals of gambling cheating (for routines and demonstrations). But, you'll pick a few things up.
