Tutorials of Card Cheating Techniques


This page provides access to various tutorials of techniques used by professional card cheats. The content is being updated regularly and new tutorials will be added in the future, as time permits. All the tutorials are fully illustrated (with crystal clear line drawings) and explained with detailed instructions. You may track the updates on our blog, through the tutorials tag, or on the updates page on this site.

Our goal is to build the most comprehensive and largest library of card cheating tutorials in the world. Our work has just begun, but already at this point our tutorials are in a class of their own. There's nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

All files marked with the symbol are accessible only to active members. If you do not have a membership, and wish to sign up, please go to the memberships page for further information.

Also, once you have a membership account you will be able to activate your profile on our bulletin board where I am available to answer questions about these tutorials as well as any other gambling-related issues, and it will also give you the chance to post requests for future tutorials.
