If you are looking for a very good start to learning the three card monte, this is a good place to begin. Sal teaches this in detail and at the end, you know exactly how to play (and win!) the game.
However, if you already know the basic mechanics of the game and want to know MORE about it, you would be better suited towards Daryl's guide to the 3 card monte (also available here at penguin).
Overall, good place to start but ONLY if you are JUST starting.

If you want to learn to perform a three card monte routine then this is best place to start. Sal takes you through the ins and outs of the game as well as presenting you with a good, usable routine to get you started. This is a classic routine that audiences know and love. If people know you perform this they will request it.

If you want to learn the three card monte from start to finish this is the best DVD I own on the subject. The basic routine is straight forward and will not take for ever to learn. the subtleties you learn from Sal in this DVD are the most valuable part of the DVD. You will not be disapointed in this DVD add to cart. listen to the advice of Sal before you even think about ripping off a spectator with this trick.

This DVD goes into great detail about 3 card monte. It will teach you all the basics, and lots of great moves. It will require a lot of practice to get good at it. I got it free, and watched it just out of curiosity. A con game like this doesn't really have a spot in my type of routines, so I didn't put in the time to get down the moves. It would be fun to fool some friends with it, though. If you're getting this to con strangers out of money, then shame on you. I felt like I had to give it 5 stars or else Sal might come and find me and beat me up. :)
Great Presentation, but hard to see. Report this review

I was already familiar with the techniques, but Sal lays them out very clearly. I only gave this DVD 4 stars because the video quality was hard to see. There is hardly any contrast in the picture and it appears too dark on screen (for my poor eyes, anyway). Look at the demo and you'll see what I mean. But, otherwise I'd say "whip out the cash!" Practice to get smooth. The secret throw and the Mexican Turnover will take time to be convincing, but well worth the effort.
Good But Not That Good Report this review

First, yes this is very good for teaching you how to play 3 card monte, but it also teaches you how the people on the streets do it and how in any situation you cannot win even if you know where the card is. Teaching is quite short and moves could be done in more detail. Practice is required especailly for the Mexican Turnover and Bent Corner Scam. The bonuses are quite good also, Alabama hustle is convincing for the spectator and quite easy. Paper clip monte is not 3 paper clips but three cards, one with a paper clip on. a special card is required for this. Disk monte is the same as normal 3 card monte except 3 plastic round disks are used.
Get this DVD if you want the moves, the inside knowledge only if you are prepared to paid. The whole contents is about 30 mins long which in my opinion isnt long enough

Sal Piacente: Street Monte - Three Card Monte. This is the third time I have purchased this DVD. Mr Piacente explains things that even performers with minimal skills can accomplish this wonderful slight of hand effect. This effect has been a street hustle for years. Do not buy this if cheating people is all you care about, since street gambling is illegal in all states, but from an entertainment stand point it is the tops and there is no better teacher than Mr Sal Piacente
great dvd! Report this review

i got this long ago and i recently dug it up and actually gave it a watch and when your new to magic honestly your not all that interested in gambling monte's but holy hell man when you learn your card work this is a must learn , everyone loves the 3 card monte trust me everyone , this is definitely one of the best dvds on this site dont buy garbage man just because an effect fools you doesn't mean its good for performing anytime anywhere , this is a must buy , plus he teaches a magic version of three card monte which always fools everyone you will never get cought , there may be a lot of single trick effects for 25 bucks out there that in reality most of those effects are garbage the demo video is what sells them as something good ( torn too is a good example ) this video is actually worth 3 times the ammount you pay for it , if you got the marbles to grab a partner you can go out in the streets and make back the money actually 5X the ammount of the cash you spend on it in one night ( altho you should watch for cops ) you can present it well in a show from a hall you book or even a house party expecially the drunks they love this and if you do it for money you will look like mr. t in time with the gold chains , dont pass by this dvd its too beautiful , and you also learn a move so even if the spectator picks the winning card you turn it over and its ends up not being the money card , spectator cant ever win , i carry 3 cards for the monte on me all the time along with 4 random aces in my little card wallet and i can pull off a 10 - 15 minute street performance ( 4 aces are for daily show which i highly recommend , beleive it or not its the best instant download ) BUY THIS NOW BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT
I love it Report this review

Everyone loves the 3 card monte, its fun. Even the people who don't like magic tricks will LOVE to play the 3 card monte. Its not that hard to do, and you will look like a professional street hustler in about a week of practice (maybe less).
