Ive tried the 3 card monte that david blaine does and a 3 card monte using an alinement move but 3 alignment move is just a little short for me and I don't particuarlly like the one that david blaine does ,
does anyone know a website I can find a decent 3 card monte

Ollie, I've read a couple of your posts and you seem determined to learn sleights and effects from free websites.

Do yourself a favor. Go get a good book on card work. Royal Road to Card Magic or Card College Vol. 1 are a great palce to start. Support the magic scene.

Remember, free and quick does not always equal good.

You really want to know 3 card monte? I mean the REAL street hustle? Then go to a bookstore and order The Real Work by Paul Price. This will teach you the proper fundamentals to the hustle. Happy grifting!

Another place to look is Whit Hayden's [url=http://www.scoundrelsstore.com]School for Scoundrels[/url] material.

Try Daryl's DVD The Full Monte for a wealth of information

I'm not sure what Blaine did, but Skinners Ultimate 3 Card Monte is an excellent packet trick. There are other posts that give other ideas.

Ollie,
Mike Skinner's 3 card monte is still the best in my opinion. Please check out Doc Eason's Video. He has a wonderful ungaffed version.

I second Daryl's 3 card monte

Daryl's Video is called "Daryl Does the Full Monte" and it is an excellent resource. Lots of ideas on 3-card monte as entertainment (and many of the techniques can be used on the street) as well as several monte-related routines and tips on how to construct some useful gaffs...

Ollie 1235,
Blain does a 3card monte, where did you see that???
I agree with above posts that Daryl's video is the most indepth monte tribute,
be sure to also check Doc Easons' Bar Magic vol.1.
Jack.

If you like three card monte you should read Jon Scarne's book on it. Also Dai Vernon's further inner secrets of card magic. And the old expert at the card table.

There is good info about three card monte in these books.

The Dai Vernon Book of Magic by Lewis Ganson also has a 3 card monte effect in it.Brilliant book,but more for intermediates than beginners.

Henry Hay's Amateur Magician's Handbook and Harry Baron's Magic for Beginners have it too.

Try Sal Piacante's Street Monte. On http://www.penguinmagic.com you can get 3 shell dvd, 3 card monte dvd, golden shells, and a deck of cards for about $60 I believe.
