“Trust everyone, but always cut the cards.” –W. C. Fields
“If you look around the poker table and can’t spot the sucker, get up…because it’s you.” –Amarillo Slim
There’s a saying amongst gamblers and card cheats, “You can sheer a sheep many times, but skin it only once.” Basically, it means that you never want to empty a person’s pockets at the card table because once their broke, they won’t keep coming back. This concept holds true, and it’s one I lived by for many years. My name is Jeff Walsh and I’m a former professional gambler and card cheat.
During most of my twenties I made my living playing cards in casinos and private games. I learned very quickly that you can be the best player in the room, and still lose. That annoyed me, so I decided to take a different route and stopped leaving the outcome to chance. I spent over a decade learning and perfecting techniques that allowed me to win on my terms. Every day, for many years, I sat at the table and deceived dealers, floor men, security cameras, and other players. I did things, everyday, that could get me arrested, put in the hospital, or quite possibly killed. I’m retired from that life now, but not completely. Now, I spend my time demonstrating just how I was able to sit at the poker table with the world’s best, and get away with the impossible.
“to act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage”
An experience unlike any before it, and quite possibly any to ever come again. Explore the more dangerous side of the gambling world. Throughout my show you’ll see just how deceptive and audacious cheating can be. You’ll be invited to play a handful of casino games without the risk of loss, and watch as the outcome is always the same: you’ll lose and I’ll win…and you’ll enjoy every minute of it.
Pull up a chair, and have a seat, trust everyone around you but make sure you always cut the cards.
Corporate or Private Events
Today, top level companies and celebrities are seeking those who can deliver more than a show, they want an experience. They want something that goes beyond “magic tricks,” they want to feel as though they were apart of something special. Private events such as weddings, birthdays, and special celebrations are seeking those who can give their friends, family, and co-workers something more, something beyond the typical. They want to something fun and memorable, and that’s what I give them.
My show can accommodate a private, intimate event consisting of a small group of people, an event with hundreds of guests, or a social gathering where people are encouraged to mingle together. For more information, or to book a showing please follow the link below.
