Official Review

The False Deals Project is a Big Blind Media production that teaches the Bottom Deal, the Second Deal, the Double Deal and the Center Deal. With each of these deals comes routines to fool your spectators. This two DVD set is somewhat of a treatise on false deals. Some of the deals are harder than other and this DVD project can keep even the dedicated student busy for a very long time. George McBride, an extremely talented card handler, teaches the moves and Liam Montier watches and comments.

Disc 1 is entirely dedicated to the bottom deal. The instruction is broken down into various parts and various versions are taught. The camera work is good and the instruction, although good, can be a bit dry at time. After the bottom deal is taught, 11 routines (including the 4 bonus routines) are taught. They are great magical routines. The bottom deal routines are a good mix of tricks using the move. This DVD is a good resource for anyone who wants to concentrate on this specific move and then be able to perform an entire evening of bottom deal tricks.

Disc 2 teaches several false deals; the second deal, the double deal and the center deal. Each of the false deals on this DVD are accompanied with a few routines. The second deal section is taught with 6 variations of the move and 5 routines, while the double deal is taught with 4 routines and the center deal is taught with 3 routines. There is plenty to challenge those who are up to the test.

This project has a tremendous amount of material with contributions from Jack Merlin, Gene Maze, Charlie Miller, Peter Kane, Mike Skinner, Jack Carpenter, Roy Walton, Dai Vernon, Marlo, Elmsley and others. It is hard to digest all the material on this project and will require multiple sessions to watch it for maximum absorption and comprehension.

The DVD’s are structured so you can watch the routine and the explanation immediately follows. The ad-copy and promo video both accurately describe what you get.

This is a great resource for those interested in false deals.
