Tony Giorgio and Erdnase

In page 38 of the May issue of Genii, Tony Giorgio says that most of the material in Erdnase is mythology, and that real hustlers laugh at it. He also refers to his articles about the subject. I wonder what is your reaction about these comments. I also would appreciate if anyone could tell me when t...

Re: You're Reading it Here First: David Blaine Barred from SAM Con. Dealers Room!

Rules are to be followed, if we don't like them, we should change them.
If I were the schmuck at the SAM convention,no one would enter without a pass, or without a tie at the Castle, no matter if he is Blaine, Copperfield, George Bush or....Richard Kaufman. :D

Re: Ladies who drive a deck well?

I have asked this already in another thread, but no one answered.
Did anyone see Scarne cutting to the aces from a borrowed deck?
It is true that he fooled the best crooked gamblers when he was only 19?

I would appreciate any information.

Re: Ethics

Great answers guys!!!!!

This subject was troubling me for some time.
Apparently in many countries the selling of copies is so common, that is discussed openly, and no one seems to have a second thought about it.

I completely agree with keeping everything, except may be incidental posts, but to search for them will probably harder than keeping everything.

Re: Bill Malone's Scarne's cutting the aces

John Scarne claimed that when he was 19, he was able to fool some of the best card sharps of his time using their deck to cut to the aces hundreds of times for one straight week.
Is that true?
Has anybody seen Scarne performing this?
