About The Book
Walter Irving Scott may have been the greatest card shark ever. In 1930, Scott bamboozled a room full of New York’s finest card manipulators by dealing himself winning poker hands from a shuffled deck, one of his many tricks. He liked to say that he “cheated the cheats.” His skill with cards was extraordinary and he soon became known as “The Phantom of the Card Table.” That’s why Gazzo, a magician from England, decided to track Scott down some 60 years later. The two became friends and Scott openly discussed his work with a view to its finally being published. “I don’t care what you say,” said Scott, “as long as you tell the truth.” This is the truth about Walter Irving Scott and other phantoms of the card table who spent years practicing a craft they rarely talk about — cheating at cards. A special chapter revealing master card tricks is also included.
