  1. D+M What advice would you give to an enthusiast in card cheating tecniques but while being an intermediate in sleight of hand. Obviously theres S.W Erdnase and How to cheat at cards but which one provides better teaching for a analytical and perceptive student and observer. As a follow up will there be a How to cheat at cards Dvd, if so can you elaborate on its contents and specifics. Thank you very much Daniel Madison and Theory11.

  3. How are you so awesome?
  4. I am under (please correct me if wrong!) the impression that you no longer actively cheat at cards in casinos, but still use those skills for magical demonstrations. Other than card cheating and magic, how does that part of you (the ability to cheat at cards) change your life in other ways? For example, are people distrustful of you at all if they sit down with you for a friendly card game?
  5. My question for Mr. Madison is a simple one. I've always really liked your style in cardistry. Since you've steered away from magic into deception, do you still practice that art? If so, do you still create new flourishes?
