Doc, I noticed you knew Ed also. Have we ever met that you know of? I go back to the mid 70's and 80's being in Chicago. The round table from 1975 thru the 80's and working at Mr. C's Magic Lounge in the mid to late 70's.


No Jimmy we never met nor did I know Ed Marlo personally that's why I wrote previously I studied his work by his videos (from a video aspect). After studying the "The Phantom of the Card Table" I seen Marlo in "The Cardician" doing the punch deal (the only known punch dealing video at that time) and from that point on I studied all of Ed Marlo's work regarding gambling; especially his book Seconds, Centers and Bottoms. Another reason why I studied Ed Marlo is because other books that I've read always showed that out of all the magicians that were around gamblers during that time, Ed was the only one to always outshine (learn better or quicker) the others when taught by the hustler. So then why not go and study under the best student?

Respectfully,

Doc

you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but never all of the people all the time.

The Turner best of the bottoms dvd is excellent he teaches you various ways of doing bottoms and his take is great, also this is a double dvd set which gives you some other added goodies as well if you like Mr Turner's style as much as I do you'll definitely love this tape.

Take care

I think Richard Turner is one of the very best I ever seen. I did not know about this DVD though. So I will have get it.
I have The Cheat DVD which helped me a lot with my bottom deal but I had to play it in slow mo to see what he was doing.

While Mr. Turner is great, I was not overly impressed with this DVD. Perhaps I am currently at a different place with my skill in contrast to some of you here, perhaps not. I am just giving my opinion.

For What it's worth, I have also seen him do it person and was not overly impressed.

Could his bottom "get the money?" Sure, as long as he wasn't playing in the presence of fast company.

Now, his second-deal, in my opinion, is a thing of beauty.

Thanks for the insight. For some reason I really believe what you say and I don't even know your capabilities.

I tryed using the push off for the longest of time but never felt comfortable doing it. I use a version of the strike bottom deal that I learnt from Jerry Camero's video On The Bottom deal. In this deal..the deck is taken away sleightly from the card..for me, this cuts out a lot of noise in the move.

I use light touch. that usually takes all the sound out. just don't drop the deck
