Gambling Demos, Gambling and just cheating in general deserves it's own forum in the Special Interests category. How come there are forums for Hypnosis and Flourishing, but none for Gambling? It's a travesty! Gambling is a very important branch of magic and cheating in general, I am sure many people want one.

OK, Iím going to jump in hereÖ

Now hypnosis are part of a lot of magic shows, at least part of the routines. Flourishing is done in almost every show that has cards or coins.

Now, what magic shows have gambling as part of them? And cheating? (Well, I guess we can say we cheat a lot of things, but general card cheatingÖ).

Personally I donít think either gambling or cheating have any place in magic (and isnít what this site is for). I canít say anything bad about gambling, Iíve been known to play a game or two, bet of the dogs and ponies. Cheating on the other hand, is reprehensible (and I might add, normally illegal). Who do you cheat, little old ladies, friends, people who canít afford to lose their money? These are the normal people who get cheated (little old men too).

Just my two cents worth,
Dave
