After choosing and losing a chosen card, the spectator deals five four-card poker hands. Following a ritual procedure, his chosen card is found in the hand. Finally, the other hands are turned over to reveal that the spectator has dealt all the Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks, and Tens into separate hands.
Remove any five sets of four like values and arrange them in cyclical order as follows - we'll assume they are Aces, King, Queens, Jacks and Tens:
A-K-Q-J-10-A-K-Q-J-10-A-K-Q-J-10-A-K-Q-J-10 - rest of deck. Either crimp the bottom card of the stack, the 10, or bridge the stack.
1. After a Jog Shuffle, cut off the stack and riffle the packets together.
2. Carry out RSC (stacked section at inner end) with a spectator noting the upper card, then give the deck to the spectator, asking, "Have you ever played Psychic Poker? Well, it's quite simple. All you do is deal the cards."
3. Ask the spectator to deal out five hands of cards—stopping once each hand has received four cards. Take back the rest of the deck.
4. Tell him to pick up his hand - the last or dealer's hand. "We're going to use a old poker ritual—well at least, it was a ritual where I played—to eliminate all but one card." You instruct him how to do an Under/Down deal. The final card will be his selection.
Finally ask him to tap the other three cards in his hand and turn them over revealing the other three mates to make four-of-a-kind. Say, "And that is a perfect Poker hand!"
5. After that sinks in, slowly turn over the other hands one at a time to reveal that each contains all four values of the same kind: Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks, and Tens. "And these make pretty good hands, too."
