What you all said is what I was trying to say but you all explained it much better than I. Thanks for the help and in elaborating what I could not say and for not pre-bashing me because I couldn't explain myself clear enough.


Respectfully,

Doc

Everything anybody visiting this particular forum might want to know about has already been answered in older posts.
It may be buried deeply in those old posts.....but it's here.

The standard answer to a post like the first one in this thread should simply be "read the whole forum half a dozen times and you'll find what you're looking for".

Tipping DVD's isn't the end of the world, but tipping DVD's to folks who haven't even spent the better part of a day searching the information out themselves is just helping the lame who could easily help themselves.

This should remain the "no free lunch" forum.

I think what it boils down to is just grab everything that you can and try to learn what you can from it.

There is no "flex course" when it comes to this stuff. There's no syllabus, no cliff notes. The reason that the more established or knowledgeable amongst the group scoff at questions like this is the same one that they, themselves, were scoffed at upon asking questions of the same nature when they were getting started: because the people who have the knowldege and have become more established worked for it and, most likely, got no handouts.

It's a lot of reading, and infinitely more study over an immeasurable time period. As alluded to by Mr. Z (who I agree with 100%), those who are truly dedicated to perfection of the art will be "at it" constantly.

But, asking what sources apply specifically to gambling-related sleight of hand isn't a major offense when compared to issuing public requests or, even worse, demands for specific information (no matter how coveted.) Committing the latter crime is a fantastic way to ostracize oneself in this relatively small world.

I see where the original poster is coming from, and I was there at one time. I quickly grew tired of reading about sleights that could be used in "routines" and that would "amaze an audience." This is one reason why I have no familiarity with magic, or performers of it, whatsoever. The solution, for me, was to seek out a professional cheat and work for him. Like anything else, I started as an apprentice and earned my information (and money.) And, yes, it annoys the hell out of me when I am asked point-blank to give information away. I just ignore it, most of the time.

But, as I said, I agree with Z. Get your nose in some books. Any books. You will either find your path, or you won't.

That's all up to you.
