The Experts at the Card Table is a new interpretation of the seminal work on card cheating, Artifice, Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table, self-published originally by an S. W. Erdnase, in Chicago in 1902.

Here, Ben offers a fresh and new perspective on what he describes as “The Erdnase System for Advantage Play” – that is, an approach for cheating at card play. Ben has reformulated Erdnase’s original prose for greater clarity in order to illustrate clandestine card table artifice including how to secretly locate desired cards, and secure and stock them for the deal. The reader is taught, in great detail, using over 750 photographs, how to falsely shuffle and cut the deck, and manage and maintain the desired cards while creating the illusion that the cards are being thoroughly mixed. Finally, the reader is instructed how to place the controlled cards into desired hands.

While the general reader will find the technical information and The Erdnase System for Advantage Play highly educational, the book is intended for those with an advanced understanding of and skill-set for this arcane art.

This book is the first of three volumes which examines and discusses the science and art of manipulating playing cards for advantage play.

Hardbound (25.4 cm x 25.4 cm), dust jacket; 232 pages with over 750 photographs.

this all started as a fitting tribute to magic's most famous stranger, and a friend to us all. Decks are a dime a dozen, but tributes carry sentiment that hide between the fibers of the paper, and aren't damaged by harsh shuffles and sloppy shifts.
