Steve Forte's acclaimed Gambling Protection Series is available once again. Included is the original 4 volume series remastered as well as bonus features with never before seen footage and interviews. This is a must for anyone with an interest in card magic and or gaming.
The original release was a series of 4 videotapes produced by Steve Forte and Paul Donnelly in 1984. The series exposed dozens of cheating techniques that were used in private games (and to a lesser-extent, casinos) and methods of protection from those techniques. The series was never intended to teach people how to cheat, but rather to protect them from cheaters.
Exclusive to this collection gain access to bonus features with never before seen footage and interviews. This is a must for anyone with an interest in card magic and or gaming.
Arguably the greatest technician with cards at present, perhaps of all time, Steve Forte seems to perform all manner of the most difficult gambling sleights as easily as breathing. He is perhaps the foremost gaming protection expert with an expansive knowledge of the methods of hustlers and how to spot and prevent them from taking advantage. It is because of this that we have one of the greatest resources for seeing gambling sleight of hand done to perfection of all time, the Gambling Protection Series. It was released primarily for casinos and card players but became known by magicians simply for the opportunity to see these mythical sleights done at unfathomable levels of proficiency. In addition to the video series, Mr. Forte has published a number of books on the subject which, although not magic, do contain some material that could be of interest to the card magician, in addition to the fascinating gambling related therein.
