Poker Hands from a deck reference

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Poker Hands from a deck reference

Postby Adam Brooks » July 13th, 2015, 11:09 pm

Hey folks,

I know this idea is published in the Apocalypse volumes somewhere, but I don't have them all with me to search:

It's basically the idea that, if you and I both pull the best 5-card poker hand you can from a standard deck twice without returning cards to the deck, the magician can/will always tie on the first hand, and beat the other person on the second hand.

Can anyone help me find this?

Thanks,
Adam
