The Poker Formula was originally designed fore the Tamariz stack, but Pit & his friend Denis Behr have developed a system for any stack
You feed in your favoured stack and the formulas will be generated.
I think the Tamariz stack will give you wider flexibility

I attended Pit Hurtling's Memorised Deck workshop in Manchester, England in May, 2014.

The final trick, Poker Formula, was one of the most memorable card tricks I'd ever witnessed.
It left me stunned. It was impossible. How could this be done?

The magician claims he can deal himself a winning hand in a game of poker.
He produces a ludicrous sheet of printed formulas. He guarantees that he can achieve the impossible.
What value do you want? We chose a full house.
What values do you want in this full house? We chose 7s & Jacks.
Do you want three 7s & two Jacks? Or three Jacks and two 7s?
To be difficult, I chose the former, which is a weaker hand, but I calculated that this choice might throw Pit off.
And how many players would you like? Four.
Perfect!
Pit then went into a surrealistic sequence. He mimicked doing things to the deck, but was clearly not doing anything at all!
He then dealt out the hands to the four imaginary players.
He turned over his five cards: it was the full house we’d asked for - 7,7,7,J,J.
No way!

Do you know if this effect from the book, Poker Formulas, is stack-specific or not?

What an entertaining routine!

Poker formula won't be an easy routine. Watching the performance video, there was a fair amount of second dealing!

Poker Formula worths every single penny if it really includes in the book.
I still remembered the first time I saw Denis Behr did that in his workshop, and I was totally shock.

Wish the book will come out very soon!!

Can't wait....gotta have his book! Just added my name to his list. His routines are wonderfully crafted and very entertaining. I love the formula list he uses when dealing a random poker hand determined by the audience.

I don't suppose anyone's heard an update on this, have they? Very anxious for this one...

The material in the book is fantastic; I was lucky enough to proof read it. The effects are all extremely thought out with all of the subtleties that show Pit has really put the work in. These routines are all tried and tested and would fit right into your mem deck repertoires. Just like Pit's last book, I can't talk highly enough about his material.

Just an update on when the book will arrive.

Pit's site has been updated with a new release window of "Winter 2015", which probably means December.

Time to get excited for this and December can't come any sooner now!

Looks like I'm going to have to figure out something else to go on my Xmas list for the little lady, then. At least I'll be able to treat myself come January. Smile

And if I wasn't excited before (which I was), I'm even more excited seeing Doug McKenzie's stamp of approval on it. I don't think I've ever seen anybody impress me with stack work as much as he has, so if he's amazed then I'm certain I'll be bowled over.
