Just finished watching the three disk set and loved it. Doc Jon's DVD set is like a book so good you can't put it down. If you want a real feel for the way things were in the underbelly of the gambling world get this set. The stories are what I really enjoy but theres some nice moves also.

For those who have the fantasy of cheaters riding into casinos on white horses and taking all the money with invisible bullet proof moves this little reality set is going to rain on their parade. The downside has always been no mater how good the scam is if your involved with other people when the heat comes down someone is likely to give it all up to save their own neck.

My biggest complain is it's not longer, I want more. Some of the language is pretty ruff and the DVD whould be better without it. You can get it from the man himself at http://www.doc-jon.com/

Thanks for the review, Ron!

It is an excellent and fascinating set of DVDs.

We at School for Scoundrels are extremely happy to have had the chance to be involved in this project.

The language is very rough and sometimes offensive, it is like listening to Tony Soprano talk about his life.

We did not want Doc to censor himself, and the feel of the video is wonderful--you will feel like you just joined Chef Anton and myself, along with Don Driver, Giuseppe Aliotta, and Zachary Strange for a weekend with Doc Jon at Chef Anton's home in the desert. It is nearly four hours of video taken from a whole weekend of beer and great food and wonderful conversation.

John Deems also shows a number of really interesting and useful moves, many that have never been tipped before.

This is the "real" stuff. You will get a wonderful look into what it takes to be a cheat, how you develop the nerve to move, what it is like working for the mob, what kind of people you will meet, etc. It is both informative and fascinating.

On Wednesday night, June 3, 2009, the http://www.ScoundrelsForum.com will sponsor a live three hour chat with Doc Jon beginning at 9 pm Eastern Time, (6 pm PT). If you are not a member, you can join anytime between now and the event. Just click on the yellow "Saloon" button at the top of the page and that will take you to our live chat room--the Joe Hep Saloon. Everyone is welcome.

Wear a helmet.

I've never heard of this set until I read this review. Just ordered this.
What moves are shown on this DVD?

Doc gives his take on these moves, many of which have never been published:

The Roll
The Flash
The Western Hit
How to Shuffle like a Card Man
Mexican Hit
Mexican Turnover
Beautiful Muck Move
Kicking Money Off the Table
The Snatch and the Chip Steal

But again, as interesting and useful as these moves are, the DVD is not really about moves. It is an invaluable look at the training and development that a cheat goes through--how he develops his nerve, skill and resourcefulness, and how important personality is to a successful career. You also get real insight into the lifestyle and pitfalls of such a life.

To read some of Doc's stories and personal history, go here:

I'll be doing the same. Even though I've never cheated in a money game (cold decks in a for fun game are standard though) I've got a huge fascination with what they do.

Yes, tommy, I am aware of where london is... that's why I asked if you were in the UK, where I thought you were. I assumed you would know the time in London.

If anyone has questions they would like to ask Doc, and can't attend the session, e-mail them to me, and I will ask them. whit@whithaydn.com

Then you can read the answers in the posted log.

Just one question,

how that someone who was working for mafia (like Yakuza is) on cheating and dirty jobs, can openly talk about cheating?! Isn't that against mafia code?

Hi,
I have a different question and if somebody could point me in the right direction that would be great.
I'm fairly new to magiccafe and was reading a thread regarding the Doc/Steven's riffle cull, its now locked. What was the end result? did Doc ever show a clip of it? is there a demo in the dvd?

I've been practicing the Steven's riffle cull taught in the new revelations, is it taught incorrectly? or is it just me? I've been struggling with it. I'm also looking for a copy of Down Under Deals, but can't seem to get my hands on one. If anybody has any idea where I might be able to get one, please let me know.
Thanks

Ed
