Three Card Monte routinely features
-The Throw
-Switching a bent corner (the usual way)
-The Mexican Turnover (optional)

Would you happen to know of other sleights that can be used in a standard game of Three Card Monte? A couple exotic ones can be found on this video.

The SFS work is excellent. SFS also maintains a wiki with a good bibliography that has an extensive three card monte section, with references including all sorts of odd and unusual approaches. See http://scoundrelswiki.com/ScoundrelsBibliography

Some of the sleights shown in the video are the Flip, Flip Forward, and Flip Change, all of which are taught in the Scoundrels book on the monte. Also the Buckle, Flustration Count, and other moves can be useful, as well as switch outs of the cards as in the pencil dot ruse, and a Flip Forward change for a pencil or lipstick marked card.

I have a shelf full of magic DVD's and consider yours the very best of them all! Anyone who really wants the inside skinnies on 3CM should consider this a must!! Thanks to you, Chef and all who made this exceptional product. And thanks also that you don't charge a thousand dollars (which it is worth) for it. I think the OP could do no better than to get this at once...

Did anyone see "The Mentalist" last night ? Jane explained the hype and the pulse trick.
