Three card monte by Scarne (John Scarne)

Three card monte by Scarne
Three card monte by Scarne


Just another reprint of a « Gambling Classic », this booklet presents in great detail the biggest money-maker among the short con games – more than the shell game and match game combined. Dealt single-handed without the aid of shills, it gets the money. When a complete mob works, they bust anyone who likes to bet on a cinch!

With only a couple hours of praticing anyone can become good enough to amaze the members of the Women’s Club. Not the Poker Club, especially if he is beating the game, for skill with cards can cause trouble. The pigeons will fly!
