Many of the demonstrations open with a wash-riffle-riffle-strip-riffle and a cut or with a cut card placed on the bottom. Then the bottoms begin. You can now get around the cut card!

In this two-DVD set Richard (A Master Fifth Degree Black Belt) uses his 35 years of martial arts footage to talk about discipline and focus. He addresses the many speculations about his super, bat-like vision, questions like, "Is it true that he blocks with his head to protect his hands?"

The DVD concludes with the LA Times story describing how he took on ten fighters for his first black belt.

But the meat and potatoes are the hours in-between where this DVD will include Turner's See Saw Bottom Deal with his Clip Take. The See-Saw will be shown with cards face-up on the bottom... Close-up dealing top bottom top bottom... with Turner's hand resting dead still on the table... from above dealing the bottoms opening the hand before each deal to show the deck does not need to be framed... and from under a glass table to clearly see the below finger work.

Not A DVD For A Beginner To Learn From Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 25th, 2017
There is a lot of good stuff on this DVD, but you really have to work to get it. Richard Turner is probably the best current performer of real world gambling slights, but unfortunately he is not very good at explaining how to do them. This DVD is a prime example of this. His bottom deals are nearly invisible, but his explanation of how to accomplish this is very weak. He focuses on what he considers to be the most important part of the bottom deal and ignores all of the supporting elements. For example no mention is made of the mechanics for the thumb push off or how to align the top card back when the bottom is dealt. Is the push off a pivot or straight across? How far should the to card be moved? Should the deck be tilted backward, kept level, or tilted forward when dealing bottome? What about borderless vs. bordered cards? In short, no mention is made of basic bottom dealing fundamentals, only the Richard Turner touches are described. He assumes, I suppose, that you are coming to his DVD already competent at dealing bottoms, but unsatisfied with your technique. This is not a DVD for a beginner wanting to learn bottom dealing.

You will learn nothing, since nothing is taught. It is a good video to show Mr. Turner's skills, and sadly, this is it.

This is a very indepth instructional video on the bottom deal. Richard goes over many different bottom deal techniques, and goes over them slowly and explains them. There are under the table shots so you can clearly see how the master gets ready his bottom deal. On top of that, the first part of the DVD is absolutely inspirational. If you ever feel like giving up on anything, rewatch that part!

Even if this DVD was $20 more, I would say worth the money :) Richard Turner is a master.
