Project 365 (167/365): 2-Card Monte

.:167/365: Two-Card Monte:.

One of the most popular routines utilized in street magic, the two-card monte is one of the first things you would learn simply because it’s fast, it’s entertaining, and it engages the audience from the get-go.

The routine works very similarly to the classic three-card monte, which is an actual street hustle routine that has been in existence for century, except for the important fact that the two-card monte doesn’t use a table for you to place the cards on, and the magic apparently happens in the spectator’s hands.

I don’t really need to describe this routine in detail, as I can see that the video does cover most of the basics, but seriously, this is one routine you need to learn if you ever plan to be a street magician, because the mileage you can get with it is just so awesome.
