Three Card Monte

I haven't seen these in a while. All four of these people are in on it.


When you let someone win, make a lot of noise to draw more lookers.

This girl was either in on it or was convinced she could win money. They took 20 or 40 bucks from her and then wouldn't play with her anymore.

Beyond the woman in green stripes, an Asian tourist gave up what looked like 80 bucks.

We have a winner! Play for free! Show me you got it and you win it! Put your money down!

When I was in New York a few years ago I saw this going on on the street. I had studied magic and card tricks and was convinced I knew what was going on and could win money. My $40 and I were soon parted. There is almost always a stooge there who appears to win. Don't fall for it!
