Th3e in depth instruction in this tutorial is not intended to support, but rather to Thwart those who attempt to cheat in a game of chance or using this move to cheat in a poker game. Mr. Curtis is teaching us the move for two reasons. Reason 1 (first and foremost) to those of you who play in cash games where money is at risk, it is important to understand the many ways your game can be compromised. Many cheating tactics in poker and other card games played for money are implemented via "sleight of hand technique." The best way to learn how to spot a cheater using sleight of hand is to understand the mechanics that go into a move used by the cheat and how the cheat uses such moves to gain unlawful advantage in a card game. Reason 2: Gambling sleight of hand is a beautiful art form and a joy to study, especially for those who love cards, card games or card magic. Thanks to gambling sleight of hand many of todays great magicians are able to entertain and amaze us by making miracles seemingly happen before our eyes using playing cards. Without the use of moves derived from the card table, the card magic performed by master magicians of past and present like Shin Lim, David Blaine or Dan Vernon wouldn't exist. In essence... Thanks to artists and magicians these moves which were originally intended for unlawful purposes have proven to be of value and have entertained millions of fans world wide. And let's face it... isn't life a little better when we can turn a negative into a positive? I think so.
