As mentioned above, "The Power of Poker" from John Bannon's new book "Dear Mr. Fantasty" is POWERFUL. Alain Nu used the effect on his TLC special this past year.

I believe Chris Angel also used it on one of his T.V. shows.

Will Gordon you beat me to it. Stack Attack has some fairly simple gambling routines in it. That Red and Black Location effect can even be used as a memory routine.

A cut to the Aces I made up. Have the four aces on top and a breather crimp on the bottom. Challenge the spectator to cut for high card. He cuts and completes the cut and shows his card. You cut to the breather, complete the cut and show one of the aces from the top. Repeat 3 more times.

Nice work Ted! The breather really is a great control. Throw a couple of shuffles and cuts retaining the Aces in position and you'd have a good routine. Would be good to end with the spectator cutting to an Ace perhaps?

Thanks for the comment. I finish with the Ace of Spades and just flick the deck with my finger flipping the breather and everything above it face up. The top face down card is the Ace of Spades.

Great ending Ted! I've used the Finger Flicking method a few times under the guise of showing what a trained finger can do.

Glenn Bishop's 'Milk Stack Poker Deal' is a great effect that is almost self-working and ends with a Royal Flush!

I also agree that "The Power of Poker" is a very strong effect and not difficult to do. This one should not be overlooked.

Tony Binarelli's "Class act" has an 18 Card Poker Deal called "Cincinatti Kid Poker Deal", that's on of my favourites!

The James File is loaded with some of the most unbelievable Poker routines ever, most of which date from the early part of the of the 30's & 40's, but are light years ahead of anything that has come out in the yast 10-15 years.......

Guy Hollingworth has one which I perform. It's a full demo with stacking, bottoms and centres. Then the deck goes back into new deck order (this part's self working). Smile

John Bannon's new lecture notes, Six.Impossible.Things has a GREAT poker deal. Easy, great presentation and pretty much self working. Worth the $15 just for this effect.

it's called Riverboat Poker and it totally kills!

Take some time out to try 'Up The Ante'....absolutely no sleights required and a genuine self-worker. PM me for a performance video (will be away from early tomorrow flying for a couple of days).

Spectator is handed a pack of cards and he can cut, deal and shuffle the deck before a series of wagers are placed....he retains the deck throughout the routine.

Hope that you take the time to take a look...

Have you tried 'Up The Ante' yet?? The ultimate gambling demo....a self-working wonder! See the reviews here on the cafe.

I realize that Dave posted this eons ago, but, he is so very right about Stewart James. Looking for not only a self-working effect but practically a complete act? Look at James' "Ten Nights in a Card Room." I think you will be pleasantly surprised Smile

I think a great self-working poker effect that I use often is Alex Hayden's "Expose" followed by John Mendoza's "Routine Poker Mental" both found on Volume 2 of Doc Eason's "Bar Magic".
