There are the usual Con Type Tricks on the DVD.
In fact I got conned when I bought the DVD.
I saw the fast and loose chain on the cover of the DVD, and I assumed there would be a routine of the fast and loose on the DVD.
Not to be.
I guess it is good to be on the other side for a change.

I know this is an old thread; but I'm hoping this means someone has bought Chef's two disc close-up magic DVD, watched it and can give a quick review of it.

I love Chef Anton's work, but with this DVD being £50 in the UK I'd like to hear a little more about what's taught and whether previous purchasers feel it was a wise investment.

I can't find any reviews about this set anywhere, which I'm hoping means its pure gold and people don't want to share.

Thanks for your help,
