Gambling Routines With Cards Vol. 2 (World's Greatest) (DRM Protected Download)
Price: $14.95

One of the things magicians who perform with playing cards hear from audiences all the time is, "I wouldn't want to play cards with you!" This is heard even more frequently when the theme of the particular card effect is gambling. Being able to win, seemingly at will, at card games is a very compelling - and commercial - skill to demonstrate to non-magicians as it conjures up very exciting possibilities!

Leading off this volume is Bill Malone who skillfully demonstrates what the curriculum would be if there were such a thing as a school for card cheats. Harry Lorayne follows with his quintessential version of Magician vs. Gambler while Darwin Ortiz shows how to deal perfect poker hands and - as a grand finale, a perfect Bridge hand - from a repeatedly shuffled deck. Marc DeSouza weaves a tale of what happens when a gambler gets into a card game with an infernal opponent while Bill Malone returns with a demonstration of his uncanny ability to deal the four Aces from the bottom - and the middle! - of the deck. Finally, James Swain finishes with two effects from gambling expert Steve Forte that will stun even knowledgeable card workers.

Strong magic combined with the romance of gambling is an irresistible combination and you'll find no better example of this highly commercial hybrid than the performers - and performances - collected on this volume.

There are some great routines in this volume. Some of them you can probably do with a few minutes of practice. Some of them you'll need to plan on a good bit of work. Bill Malone's "Of Course I Can Deal a Good Poker Hand" is a masterpiece, but I would say you are looking at a lot of practice unless you're already proficient with cards. There are two routines on here that are practically identical, one by Harry Lorayne and another by Marc Desouza. Lorayne's routine is probably one of the more famous ones and I like it, but I have to say Marc takes it a step further with a nice little kicker ending. Unfortunately, with both on one volume it seems like you're losing a trick but both have their merits. The final two effects are Steve Forte poker deals and deserve some study.

As with most gambling effects, you'll need to be at a table to make these work. There are no stand-up effects here, and I'm not sure you could adapt any of them to that. But if you are just wanting to add a good gambling routine to your arsenal, there are some great choices here.

Audiences have always been fascinated by gambling. What do we always hear? "Can I go to Vegas with you?" "I'd hate to play cards with you!"

Having a few great gambling routines ( some serious, some funny ) is paramount for anyone that uses playing cards for magic. This dvd delivers that and more!
