Nicholas, regarding triumph poker deals, I have to recommend something that struck me as just plain beautiful when I read it. I believe it's from J.K. Hartman, and if so, I don't think he'd mind if I describe it here, since he has Tomes of other stuff.
Here's the idea: Give the deck a good downward bend. (i.e. from a hand-to-hand spring, or a pressure fan) deal out five hands of poker to four spectators, the last hand going to yourself.
Tell the four participants that you will look away, and they are each to look over their hands, decide on one card, and flip it face up in the face down packet. They should then table their hands, obviously the top card should not be their reversed selection. You illustrate with your hand.
Turn around, and allow this to be done.
Pick up the deck. Cut at about center and ask that the first hand be replaced there. Honestly replace the top half, holding no break.
For the next hand, cut to the natural break below the first reversed selection. Have the second hand replaced onto the bottom half, and in the act of replacing the top half, use the Orvette-Kelly bottom replacement to maneuver the first selection to the bottom of the deck.
Repeat for the rest of the hands, using your hand (without a selection, you've righted it following the demo)as the last hand that allows you to steal the fourth selection to the bottom.
So, you're left with four reversed selection at the bottom of the deck. The triumph handling should now be obvious. (i.e. cut the deck, and while openly turning the top half face up for the shuffle, flop the bottom half to the table, reversing it. Shuffle)
You end by showing the four selections as the only reversed cards in the deck, all together in the center.
Ok, so it's not technically a trick "deal". The only dealing occurs at the beginning of the effect. But it fits into a routine so nicely, no one will ever notice.
For instance, you deal a five handed game, giving yourself a royal flush. (perhaps the Marlo-Gardner deal) Follow that with this routine, but keep track of your royal flush during the triumph shuffling. After you reveal the four selections, they become your original Royal flush.
This plays well,and it's not a knuckle buster.
