To convey the value of the information you are about to learn, I believe that we can do no better than to quote the infamous S.W. Erdnase from his classic book, The Expert at the Card Table - "But there is not a single card feat in the whole calendar that will give as good returns for the amount of practice required, or that will mystify as greatly, or cause as much amusement, or bear so much repetition, as this little game; and for these reasons we believe it worth of unstinted effort to master it thoroughly."

You will be expertly taught this amazing effect by none other than Daryl - the World Champion Magician's Magician. Daryl is one of the finest teachers of magic in the world today. He takes you through step-by-step instructions for many different 3-Card Monte sequences and, if you need any further convincing of the astonishing reaction this effect gets, you are also treated to Daryl's live performances of two of the more famous routines. This video is both entertaining and invaluable to anyone interested in magic.
