- Send to a Friend
|Join School for Scoundrels in an amazing weekend with Doc Jon. Doc has lived an extraordinary life as a dealer, mechanic, crossroader, and card and dice cheat for crime mobs in Las Vegas and Hawaii, as well as for the Yakuza in Japan.
He sits and talks with us for nearly four hours on these 3 DVD, telling us his thrilling life story and talking about what it takes to be a successful cheat. He talks about being busted with a gang for drilling the slots on the floors of Las Vegas casinos, about betrayals and friendships in the world of professional gamblers, and about going to prison for running a juiced dice table in an illegal gambling house for the Mulano Family in Los Angeles.
It is fascinating to hear about this strange life from a man who has really been there, and who has spent time in prison as a result, and was nearly blown up by a car bomb.
He talks about how you develop the moxie to move under fire, and the difference between being a great card handler and a true card cheat. This is the real deal, and the authenticity and authority of the story is apparent from the very beginning.
He teaches how to handle a deck of cards in a way that won't make a pro grimace. he shows some never before published cheating moves and some advanced handlings and nuances on some classics. he explains chip stealing moves as well as card handling. he talks about what is actually useful and important and tips his method for marking and re-sealing a deck of cards for Blackjack. A great unpublished version of the Mexican Turnover is also shown.
This is a fascinating and gripping story filled with humor and danger, and remarkable "real world" feel. This is rare glimpse into a life to which few ever get a peek. Doc's story explains how he moved from a young dealer for the house, just looking to learn how to protect his game, to a full-fledge card mechanic, crossroader, and dice cheat.
