What is the name of the variation where the card is folded in the upper corner?


And what's the best variation of the three card monte?

Bent corner.

As for variations, take your choice.
Whichever one most appeals to you.

The Scoundrels Bibliography has a good listing of sources to investigate. Unfortunately it seems to be down at the moment.

Aaaak! What happened?

(If that's none of my business feel free to say so. It had cool stuff on it though.)

It had been very slow for a long time and after closing the School for Scoundrels class last year, we thought it was time. Twenty years is a good run.

Have you ever thought of taking the School for Scoundrels class on the road?

Bob Sheets and Chef Anton and I have thought about it. I am not sure there is enough interest to make it profitable. Moving three people around the country for an eight hour workshop for a small number of people is not a great business model. We didn't really make much money doing it here where we all live. We don't make much off our videos either. So much copying is going on that there really isn't much money in putting out a DVD that you have to split the money on.

We have good video of the last class, and we will probably put that out...but a hands on workshop with the three of us would take some doing. We have had twenty continuous years of instruction. That is all we can afford right now.

My favorite variation is The Stamp, but I'm better with the Bent Corner.
