Re: Alaskan Poker by Ricky Jay

A number of card men have used Rollover just to produce the Aces. No kicker.

Re: Alaskan Poker by Ricky Jay

Dustin, Card School by Peter Duffie has a routine called Stacking For Real. This includes the technique of adding a slug to the stack. A technique that has been in many publications. Nothing earth shattering. And I don't use a slop shuffle.

Re: Alaskan Poker by Ricky Jay

I will apologize for the "chill" remark. However, perhaps I did not make my self clear on the OP. I really liked the running cut to load the third Ace. A thing of beauty. If anyone has seen this in print, let me know.

Re: Alaskan Poker by Ricky Jay

Chris, thanks for the tips, however I do Darwin's routine. I liked RJ's because he only used three riffle shuffles to stack. I also liked the running cut to load the third Ace.

Alaskan Poker by Ricky Jay

I fell in love with this RJ routine and it took me quite a while to reconstruct it. I now perform it often. Has anyone else done this? Just curious because it took me quite a while. I don't think it's seen print. Thanks for any replies.

The Cervon routine also uses a basic double turnover. and moves along rather quickly. Takes out the boring aspect.

roterberg card box

I bought this box used and I am having a problem without instructions. It probably is going to need more soldering too. Nice nickel box but worthless too me right now without info. It very strongly resembles a P&L.
