Another poker deal demonstration. Cannot find a well descibed "blurb" and also no reviews. Has anyone bought this?

Untill nowe I stick with John Bannon's routines. But always looking for new stuff.

"Instant Card Shark" can be found at, so can "Honest poker Cheat" - any reviews?

It's in "Dear Mr. Fantasy" as well as Dave Solomon's latest book "Wisdom of Solomon". Both excellent books. It's actually Solomon's routine with influences from Bannon.

I don't think he takes PayPal, but you can buy it from your local or internet dealer.

I have tried a fair number of poker demonstrations, and I keep going back to the one that garners the best audience reaction. The Vernon Poker Demonstration as described in The Dai Vernon Book of Magic by Lewis Ganson.
