Ive used the following for the last while, and it looks both very real (cause it sorta is) and impressive.
I use the get lucky stack to stack 8 cards: 2 for my hand, 2 for someone elses and four on the flop.
What this means is that I can stack for a spec to get a flush (usually what I do) and I end up drawing a full house on the river.
Why do I use a flush and full house? one, it can be stacked without a problem, and two, I use this for guys and gals who know and play poker.
Who hasnt lost to a full house when they had a flush? Its not the most common situation, but one that every poker player has faced at one time or another.
So the trick is this: four hands are dealt (get lucky stack, right?) and one spec has lets say AK of hearts to my 44.
flop comes up with 2 hearts, one of which is a 7, and another 7 (so 7H, 7S, 10H). Turn is another heart.
I then point out that I need a 7 or 4 to win. several options here.
My fave is:
tell them that the odds of hitting one of those cards on the river is slim... and then show the card (which is NOT a 7 or 4)... IF I was playing fair. Which Im not.
The you can do any change (I use a magic change: impulse, twirl, topchange, whatever) to change it to a 7 or 4. Obviously, you could have them pick which one you want it to change into, and do it that way...
but its a nice little display.
The problem with hold em is that the picture isnt as clear. stack it so that you recieve 2 aces in your hand and the 2 other ones spread out among the flop-river.
The final picture is no where near as pretty as dealing yourself 4 aces...
So, Im still a fan of stuff like vernons poker deal.
You can deal out a royal flush to yourself in holdem, but you might have to point it out...
