Has anyone tried this month's trick (Simple Gilbreath Double Duke) in David Solomon's July Bulletin.

I like poker deals but I can't seem to make it work.

After the first 5 hands are dealt, are they reschuffled into the remaining deck or simply with themselves. I have tried shuffling them both by themselves and into the rest of the deck but cannot get the outcome described by David.

Any help is appreciated.

Wayne

It doesn't work as written. There are problems with his set-up. For one thing, in order for the Straight Flush to come out in the fifth hand at the end, the 7H-6H-5H-4H-3H run has to be at the top of the second half (not 15 cards down in it) when the spectator shuffles. I'm still not sure what change needs to be made to actually get a Full House in the first or second hand every time.

David just issued an updated set up and the trick now works as described.

Nice!

You saved me the hair-gluing thing -- I saw the 2nd newsletter come through, and one of the things on my list for today was to work through that... glad I waited, and glad he sent that 😉
