This is a download only product.
1 year ago I decided to take on a legend who turned out to be a fake. I locked myself in a room, void of all distractions and shut down my social media accounts.
Studying, memorizing and mastering the infamous book from 1902: The Expert at the Card Table by S. W. Erdnase.
It's taken me all around the world to find out more about the man. Exploring LA, New York, Paris & London in the search of answers.
This huge collection is not just about me teaching you everything from the myth Erdnase created.
The secrets within this truly unique project have influenced my career over 15 years. I realized I'm better than Erdnase, and I can prove it.
Even though the original box set is no longer available, I can still offer you my experience & knowledge through the digital medium. You'll have access to the downloads an and annotated PDF version of Expert at the Card table.
This will be my last major project.

This is a great set and a great view into the mind of Daniel. He delves into the nuances, positives, and flaws of the book often referred to as the card handlers bible. Unfortunately, much like the bible, this book is often owned but much less often read completely, and MUCH MUCH less often understood. Daniel scours through the moves, gives his insights and how HE would do it, then piggybacks off of his other projects to further display how something ought to REALLY be done. VERY GOOD insight, very good instruction AND inspiration to create your own path.
It was the most perfect video I have seen
Just been getting back into magic after a very long break. Was going to finally start to read Erdnase and getting this video bundle is definitely going to help me avoid many frustrating hours.
Watching the first video has shown me quite a nice revelation of making things more manageable.
Great intro to Erdnase and Madison. It’s both motivational and instructional.
Madison breaks down this foundational book, further aided by his videos. Anyone interested in slight of hand needs this.
Easy to navigate through to find what I’m looking for and very thorough in coverage of specific moves
This is my first serious entry into the world of sleight of hand card work. I struggled with the original text of the book and I knew it was going to take a serious amount of time just to decipher what was being shared. I knew I needed to try this. Wasn’t an easy choice, especially considering the cost was slightly prohibitive, but I can say now that it is worth every cent. Even though I m still only working on table shuffles (the first section) I am already blown away by what is on offer here and how well it is being taught. I’m certain that is going to be the strong foundation for the card work I learn in future. There is so much wisdom in here as well and Madison shares his thoughts and some of his own subtle changes he’s made to fit this into his style that is very insightful. He’s really laying it all out on the table here. So much value. If you’re serious about acquiring these types of skills, don’t hesitate. Get it!
'Erdnase x Madison' provides about eight hours of instructional tutorials inspired by the content provided in the card 'Bible', 'The Expert at the Table' by Erdnase. Madison is respectful of Erdnase, but not reverential. I really appreciated that Madison often challenges and even criticizes the content of the book, often sharing his own techniques that achieve the same effect that are cleaner and/or easier. At the end Madison remarks that the project was not what he expected, and the video wasn't what I expected either. Rather than work through all the content in the book, Madison chooses to focus on certain sections, such as false shuffles and dealing. If, like me, you've had the 'Bible' sitting on the shelf gathering dust, these lessons will have you getting it down, and giving it another look.
As a up and coming card sharp, this Gide finally bypasses the need to devote diagrams. DM makes cards more beautiful by showing the work and skill involved in manipulating a deck of card.
If you have trouble with the book or are just more of a visual learner this instructional is a must have. Madison also shows why certain things are better the way he does them. Explains his theory on certain elements. For the information provided here, the video is priceless.
