An instructive warning to those who must play for stakes. Interesting amusement for those who do not.
Excerpt from the Foreword:
This book is an explanation of the fundamental principles upon which all card sharping is based.
Once the main ideas are thoroughly understood, it becomes a comparatively easy matter to detect any subterfuge no matter how intricate.
This book is nicely illustrated by Charles Remmers from photographs by the author. It contains a description of cheating at the popular Australian game of Two-Up which makes it unique.
