The Ultimate Work 2-Disc DVD Set
Tony Giorgio was one of the most skilled and knowledgeable card cheaters and magicians in the business. He also had a distinguished career as an actor.
This two-volume DVD set features him explaining the art of hand mucking, or the arcane art of the hold-out man.
Tony Giorgio spent more than 20 years in the demimonde of card and dice hustlers. During those years, he met and broke bread with literally hundreds of handmuckers, machine men, bust-out men, steers, front-men, spot finders, two-dealers, cellar-dealers, spreaders, cold-deckers, run-up men, check coppers, paper-players, painters, scratch players, slick sleeve and bean shooter players from Portland, Maine south to Miami Beach, Florida, west to California and north to Alaska.
He played in limit-games for pocket change and in games played for high stakes. During his travels and play, he learned from the top hold-out men in the world and invented and used many of his own moves which he now reveals.
On these DVDs he demonstrates and teaches the Machine Break and his many original variations. He shows never before exposed Card-Steals. There are heretofore unrevealed Blackjack and Hole Card-Switches, Multiple Card Switches, explanations, and demonstrations of Capping The Deck, Capping To The Bottom, Cleaning-Up, Spreading Down, or Playing The Brush. In great detail, Giorgio teaches the ploy of playing with an extra card and Multiple Methods of cleaning it up (getting rid of the extra card).
There are lengthy discussions and demonstrations of the art of concealment and the attitudes that allay suspicion. You will see and learn the moves that… get the money. You will view the use of card palming in advantage play and its application to the art of magic.
