ROY WALTON, who is one of the most fastidious magicians we know, gave us this Poker deal a long while back. A copy also went to our friend Bruce Elliott, but certainly up to this date it has not appeared in ' The Phoenix.'

In effect a pack of cards is shuffled and placed in the centre of the table. A number of hands of Poker (from two to ten inclusive) named by the spectator are dealt without any manipulation of the pack. The hand dealt by the performer to himself will always be the winning hand!

A stacked pack is responsible for the effect and it is for the performer to decide how it shall be brought into play. Once however it is in his hands, a convincing false shuffle is given and after the number of hands has been asked for and the answer given they are dealt around the table by the performer. Generally the number named will be four, but as previously mentioned you will be covered for any number of hands from two to ten.

This is the order of the pack when face down:—

Five of spades (Top Card), king of spades, nine of clubs, king of hearts, jack of diamonds, queen of clubs, ace of diamonds, queen of hearts, nine of spades, three of spades, three of clubs, ten of hearts, two of clubs, two of diamonds, two of hearts, jack of hearts, five of hearts, ten of spades, four of hearts, ace of hearts, three of diamonds, four of spades, seven of hearts, nine of hearts, jack of clubs, eight of diamonds, eight of spades, four of diamonds, six of diamonds, ten of diamonds, nine of diamonds, queen of diamonds, six of clubs, three of hearts, five of diamonds, six of spades, two of spades, six of hearts, five of clubs, queen of spades, eight of clubs, ace of spades, ten of clubs, king of diamonds, seven of spades, seven of diamonds, seven of clubs, eight of hearts, king of clubs, ace of clubs, three of spades, four of clubs (bottom card).

Now let us examine the hands that are dealt as a result of this particular set-up.

If two hands, the performer holds: King of spades, king of hearts, queen of clubs, queen of hearts and three of spades (two pairs).

If three hands he will have: Nine of clubs, queen of clubs, nine of spades, ten of hearts, and two of hearts (deuces are wild, so that this makes three of a kind).

If four hands are dealt up comes the following: King of hearts, queen of hearts, ten of hearts, jack of hearts, and ace of hearts (Royal flush).

Five hands will give the performer this: Jack of diamonds, three of spades, two of hearts, ace of hearts, and jack of clubs (with deuces wild three of a kind).

Six hands give the following to the performer: Queen of clubs, ten of hearts, ten of spades, nine of hearts, ten of diamonds (three of a kind).

Seven hands: Ace of diamonds, two of diamonds, three of diamonds, four of diamonds, five of diamonds (straight flush).

Eight hands: Queen of hearts, jack of hearts, nine of hearts, queen of diamonds and queen of spades (three of a kind).

Nine hands: Nine of spades, ten of spades, eight of spades, six of spades, seven of spades (straight flush).

Ten hands: Three of spades, ace of hearts, ten of diamonds, queen of spades, and ace of clubs (one pair).
