Pretty decent! Report this review

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.
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
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.

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. :)
Really Good Report this review

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.
Good place to start Report this review

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.

After watching this DVD and putting in the proper amount of practice, you will soon be completely fooling people with the game of 3 Card Monte. All techniques and subtleties are explained very clearly, and there are reasons behind all the moves. The psychology of the game, as well as \"outs\" when the spectator may guess correctly, are also addressed in this DVD. If you are interested in the game, this is an excellent DVD to learn it from.

The best ever no more packet tricks Report this review

This is the best ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever. You will not find a better 3 card monte. The bent corner scam is worth the price of it. I was looking around for the best 3 card monte this is it.
No funny moves (well not that the suckers......spectators can see) and all examinable.

Great Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2004
I love performing this illusion. People always think that they can find the money card but no one ever can. This DVD goes into depth on both basic and expert monte moves. However, at some parts Sal can move quickly and I needed to rewind it several times. None the less, Street Monte is a great trick to have in your arsenal.
