Yeah, what hamO said. If it's illegal, why should we need to know it? Check out my Instructable, [simple money getting trick] *note* this is not illegal, this is just a trick to some money at school.<br/>
If it's illegal, why would we want (need) to learn how to do it?

gambling displays, magic tricks, making money fast & illegally... in about 15 minutes with a good monte team (yah, you usually have somebody there to A. look out, and B. help you get MORE $$) bump up the bet, offer a couple "double or nothing" deals, and get out of there with fists full of cash.
same picture's and a better description can be found here<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.beginningmagic.net/three-card-monte.html">card trick</a><br/>
I use a different method .... at the end of the monte, as a final display of my deceit, I rip off the corner of the "money" card so that the letter and symbol show, and set that corner on the table in plain sight. I then shuffle the cards and get the bets as to where the money card is... and the suckers still lose.
<strong>Spell Checker!!!</strong><br/><br/>Diagrams would help where the descriptions falter.<br/><br/>The game is called &quot;Three Card Monte&quot;<br/>
variation of cups?
Three Card Monte is only illegal if you charge people money to play. Doing it for fun is perfectly legal.
The game is only illegal fro two reasons. First, you need some sort of license in most cities to do something like this on the street, and people never get them. They could be playing the game with the cards face up, and making everyone a winner, and it would still be illegal in this regard. Second, when it's played on the street, they do it so there is no way to win. They will show the winner, and then not play the winner, so no which card you play, you can't pick the winner. The way around this is to piack the card you think would be the winner, then put you hand down on it, claiming it's the winner. Force them to turn over the other two, showing losers. Your card must be the winner. Of course, be prepared to get your butt kicked if you even think about touchihng the cards. So, please, don't touch the cards. Repeat, DO NOT TOUCH THE CARDS.
