Whether you're a beginner or professional poker player, you can't afford to miss out. For the beginner, there is an on-screen lexicon of poker terms to help you follow along. For the professional, there are cheating methods never before seen.

The program ends with descriptions of tournament poker cheating and online poker cheating.

I saw it- it's awesome. I've seen the Tudor DVD and the Malek DVD and this one is undeniably the best. The production quality is great and Sal shows how the moves are done. There's a menu that'll take you to whatever part you want to see. They even talked about tournament and online cheating at the end. This is the first time I've ever seen location play too. Worth every penny!

Why the hell would you say that? You think Sal needs to B.S. to sell a DVD? I guess you don't know Sal my friend. He is one of the nicest people I have had the privlege to speak to. I'm sure a lot of members here would vouch (sp?)to that. Think before you post crap. BTW high quality is a given if Sal's involved.

I second Sal!

I have his 3cm DVD and 3 Shell Game DVD... Both are great!!! I was looking at the DVD, but with so many competitors out there, I may just wait a while.

I have it. It's outstanding! More on this DVD than one could learn in Five years.
The production quality is very good and the time that Sal takes with each and every move is great. The bonus features are an added plus as well! The best investment I've made in a long time.
I am truly blessed to have a job where people are laughing all the time and everyone believes in magic....Come to think of it, I'm blessed to even have a job.

I found this review of of Sal Piacente's "Poker Cheats Exposed" at http://www.blackjackforumonline.com

Subject : New Poker Cheating DVD Set by ArnoldSnyder on 02-05-2006 13:26

I recently had the opportunity to watch a couple of DVDs by Sal Piacente on cheating at poker. I've known Sal for many years. He's an old buddy of Steve Forte's and used to work in casino surveillance. He still does consulting for casinos, mostly on game protection. You may have seen him in that recent discovery channel documentary on cheating. I wrote a review of the DVDs (below) and told Sal he could post my review on his web site. I have no financial interest in this product.

"Poker Cheats Exposed" is a 2-1/2 hour, 2-DVD set. This is the best and most comprehensive exposé of card cheating methods—and specifically poker cheating methods—that I have ever seen. It is also the first video presentation of card cheating techniques that can be favorably compared to Steve Forte’s 1994 “Gambling Protection Series” videos.

The production quality is top notch and Sal’s explanations are as clear as can be. His skill at card manipulation is unsurpassed. In fact, what strikes you is the simplicity of the moves he demonstrates. Poker is a game where controlling a single card can often affect who wins a big pot. Sal shows how easily and invisibly a single card—or a small group of cards—can be controlled.

He demonstrates many ways that a player who is working in collusion with a crooked dealer pretty much has a license to steal. He also shows ways that players working alone, or with confederates at the table, can cheat without the dealer’s involvement. He explains the types of cheating moves players are most likely to encounter in private games, as well as in public poker rooms.

He shows many variations of false shuffles, deck-stacking, second dealing, covert signals, card marking techniques, mechanical devices, and the specific types of cheating you're most likely to encounter in both Texas hold’em and seven-card stud.

Many of the moves are performed by Sal, but he is also aided by “Charlie,” an anonymous poker player whose face we don’t see, but who admits to having made his living as a poker cheat for 45 years, never once having been caught.

Every serious poker player should get this DVD set. It’s scary. If you play high stakes poker, or if you ever play in private games, you’re making a big mistake if you don’t take the time to study the ways that professional poker cheats work.
You can purchase the DVDs online at http://www.pocketacesllc.net, or at the Gamblers Book Shop in Las Vegas.
