He wants to see if his skills in deception and magic will allow him to pull off the hardest cons of all: the so-called Proposition Bets – outlandish sounding wagers that are almost impossible to win unless you know the cunning secret behind them. These bets were originally used to con people out of their money – but for Alexis it’s not about the cash. He’s on a personal mission to measure himself against the greatest hustlers in the country where these ideas were invented.
