He claims the book will be very expensive and the only book he'll ever write

I don't know who he is, but his posts are fun to read (whether all real or not, who knows)

However, for someone who likes to put down a lot of people for thinking too highly of themselves, he sure thinks highly of himself...

So, um....who is he?
Magician or gambler?

Well, frankly, a book talking about Cardini, Scott, Vernon or Erdnase... Whaoooh! Brand new, never seen before, top of the top!

I hope he'll talk about Erdnase's run-ups or his fancy cuts. I just can't wait.

Did I tell you that I learned how to read Poker tells with Joseph Buatier De Kolta, perfected my shifts with Alexander Herrmann and that Steve Forte decided not to appear live anymore after watching one of my videos? Even Jason England decided to stop manipulate cards because of me. He now breeds dogs in a shack, in the desert. Jonnhy Carson offered $1,000,000 to interview me but I already refused $1,500,000 from Larry King. I'm so good they wanted to name a street after me in Las Vegas, place where I have never been. For my next book preface I'll display a few kind words Mark Twain said about me. And maybe, maybe, I'll report the legendary meeting between me and Dai Vernon in 1956. After it, he implored me not to go to the Magic Castle ever.

Here's more for you, dear fans. In 1973 they had to change card regulations in Gardena, because I was bringing all cardrooms profits straight down. Edward Thorp stole all his theories on Blackjack from me. The movie "Rounders" (1998) is in fact about me and Walter Scott refused to leave our mother earth without talking to me. My main problem is that I am too humble, that's why I reached the living legend status only, I could have been more famous.

I agree...you are being too humble as I have seen your complete resume and you omitted quite a few impressive accomplishments out of modesty, probably because you don't want a lot of scantily clad women hanging around trying to get to know you.

However, you are wrong about Jason England. He no longer has a shack in the desert. He now has a beautiful kennel facility on the Las Vegas strip, between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo casinos, just opposite the Paris Hotel/Casino. In fact, you can get a great view of his kennels from the Eiffel tower located across the street in the Paris.

By the way Arnold, I am a little concerned. Are you still taking your meds? Smile

It is currently being worked on...Arnold McDonald Way and AMcD Boulevard have been submitted to the planning commission. He might end up with two streets instead of one.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Article on magicana says that bill kalush studied under joe crist among others. Also on instagram bill malone seems to know him personally. Can't see these two heavy hitters associating with a fraud.

I was referencing some Jack McMillen information the other day,and came across th name Joe Crist - Charlie Miller speaks about him in the August 1966 Magicana. He was quite impressed with Crists ability,so it seems.

My grandpa was impressed by a Magician in 1924. I assure you, he told me.

Well, as long as idiots pay for it...

The guy shows nothing and people make him a legend lol. Looks like it's an habit with Magicians though. Scott, Erdnase,...

I'm not sure you'd be correct including Erdnase in with Joe Crist and Walter Scott!

Erdnase didn't make a cent off his book, and nowhere does he indicate he gave anybody lessons, or taught anything for a cash payment.

Taken with only the facts to go by, any money he made would have been made by hustling other players at the table, in other words - "honestly" Smile

You make some valid point. I officially remove the name of Erdnase from my list.

I'll stick with the 2 others though. In fact, I should put a lot of retired or reformed gamblers into that list. Maybe I should include myself.

Here's my new motto: Arnold McDonald (MacDonald for the USA), the Real Invisible Phantom. Reformed luck fitter at the card table. Email, $1,250. Facebook message, $2,500. Skype message, $7,500. Skype session (7min) $12,500. Live session (15min) $50,000 (+$12,000 extra for a picture with me). TV show $150,000. Movie, $750,000. I can offer a 10% discount if Scarlett Johansson plays my partner for the love scenes. Lesson, $10,000 per 10min. Autograph, $100 only, I'm not a monster.

@AMcD:

I know a Hollywood producer who is interested in a challenge card sharp video for national release.

How much would you charge for a three-way card table challenge with you, DOC and Dan Madison to see who is truly the "best."

My bet is that Madison and DOC would compete very closely on the nonsensical verbal blabber, but you would take the skill award. Of course, I am just guessing on this as I have not heard your hip, jive, in the know banter but if the above post is an indication, you might take both awards. Smile

PS - You might want to hold off on taking your non-prescription "meds" before posting. Smile

Cag,

You are very fortunate that I still post for free on that forum Smile.

About the skill award, well, Doc has a very nice punched deal. When he doesn't flashes, his cold decks are very good too.

Madison has an accordion-like second deal technique which is hard to beat. It's a very clever technique when you think about it. Each time he deals a card he knocks out the guy on his right with his right hand (the one on his left is in a very risky place as well, he might be punched by Madison's left hand). That way, he secures the bad angles of his second deal. Very clever.

That said, they would beat me. They're pros, I'm an amateur.

Bones, you must be privy to "facts" unknown to the rest of us. Smile

Mr. Bones -

"The highest tribute that can be paid to the method is the fact that certain players whom we have instructed, can execute the stock with the greatest facility and yet confess they cannot tell why the particular action produces the result."

The Expert at the Card Table p. 73



Sounds like giving lessons to me.
