A visual treatise on handmucking, or the arcane art of the hold-out man, photographed with state of the art High-Definition video cameras.

TONY GIORGIO the man who appears in this set of two DVDs, reveals the authentic sleight of hand employed by .hold-out men.. TONY GIORGIO spent more than 20 years in the demimonde of card and dice hustlers.
During those years, he met and broke bread with literally hundreds of handmuckers, machine men, bust-out men, steers, front-men, spot finders, two-dealers, cellar-dealers, spreaders, cold-deckers, run-up men, check coppers, paper-players, painters, scratch players, slick sleeve and bean shooter players from Portland, Maine south to Miami Beach, Florida, west to California and north to Alaska.

TONY GIORGIO played cards across the United States, on the Canadian prairies, in Cuba before the revolution and in the cantinas of Mexican border towns. He .moved. in private clubs, private games, floating games, athletic clubs, poolrooms, card rooms and casinos. He moved on the unsophisticated and the sophisticated.

GIORGIO played poker with the hoi-polloi, blue collar workers, rodeo riders and cowboys in Texas, New Mexico, Wyoming and Arizona; with miners in Montana, longshoremen with grappling hooks in their belts and New Orleans pimps sporting pearl-handled pistols. He played in limit-games for pocket change and in games played for high stakes. During his travels and play, he learned from the top hold-out men in the world and invented and used many of his own moves which he now reveals.

In these DVDs, which run over two hours, GIORGIO demonstrates and teaches the MACHINE BREAK and his many original variations. He shows never before exposed CARD-STEALS. There are heretofore unrevealed BLACKJACK and HOLE CARD-SWITCHES, MULTIPLE CARD SWITCHES, explanations and demonstrations of CAPPING THE DECK, CAPPING TO THE BOTTOM, CLEANING-UP, SPREADING DOWN, or PLAYING THE BRUSH. In great detail, GIORGIO teaches the ploy of playing with an extra card and MULTIPLE METHODS of cleaning it up (getting rid of the extra card).

There are lengthy discussions and demonstrations of the art of concealment and the attitudes that allay suspicion. You will see and learn the moves that .get the money..

You will view every use of card palming in advantage play and its application to the art of magic.

The moves and methods shown in THE ULTIMATE WORK DVDs are not magicians. versions, or the purportedly authentic moves presented by the countless ersatz .gambling experts. who inhabit the world of magic.

THE ULTIMATE WORK is not sold to teach card cheating. It is intended to show how the art of the card mechanic can be applied to the art of magic.

"These DVDs are filled with great material that has never been tipped before. There are moves for cheating at poker, blackjack, and gin rummy along with insights as to how they're used and it's all authentic. For anyone who wants to see how it's really done by somebody who really did it, this is pure gold."

he Godfather of Handmucking! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 24th, 2015
This DVD set is a absolute must for anyone interested in learning Handmucking. Upon watching this DVD set I learned many interesting insights about Tony Giorgio that I found very fascinating. Not only did Tony Giorgio play in the movie the Godfather, but was an actual card hustler back in the day. Many of the handmucks he shares are of his own design. One in particular that I had picked up in the Vernon video tape series, he only said he learned it from a cheat and never revealed the creators name. I was shocked to find out it was Tony. This series is great and only for advanced card people. He does lack giving details that would be very helpful when learning such as finger positions and such and I wish the had performers views (There are a few in the extras) However if you study his moves you can figure it out. This set is by far the best source you can find on handmucking. Only other good sources I have found is by Father Alex and Dustin Marks, even so Tony's is still the best.
