I thought this might be of interest. I remember seeing it in the bond film but did not realise until recently it was a real hand from a real game of bridge.

Enjoy.

I'm surprised this didn't strike a chord.

Not enough bridge players around here.

The scam is also described in "How Gamblers Win."

This one might be more up the Café's alley...

This stuff is like "kindergarten cards".

Most guys here have half a dozen books in their libraries with variations of most every hustle in the popular lexicon, some of those tomes dating back into the 1800's.

Have you actually read the back-log of this "Gambling Spot" forum you're posting on?

* sigh *

I bring up subjects that interest me and that I hope interest others. My blog is written for laypeople, not the experts of the Café. I need to explain what a shiner is and who Green was to my readers as they simply don't know.

I posted it here because it's a good story regardless of how basic the techniques and ideas are.
