Whit “Pop” Haydn and Chef Anton Riniti have taught a course at the Magic Castle every year since 1996 as part of the Magic University.
2015 will be our 20th year of School for Scoundrels at the Magic Castle.
This eight hour course covers the history, moves, ruses, psychology and application to magic of the three classic street swindles: Three Card Monte, Fast and Loose, and the Shell Game.
These are the class notes on Three-Card Monte in downloadable pdf form.
Over 160 pages with authentic photographs and illustrations! This is by far the most comprehensive book ever written on the history, psychology, and moves of this classic swindle.
We explore its application to magic and include the School for Scoundrels complete three-card monte routine called Three-Card Gold. We also feature some of the most clever endings ever devised and are proud to introduce Bob Kohler’s Knifedand Gazzo’s Creased Lightning, and many other ruses which have never previously appeared in print.
