Impressionistic Poker Demos

Impressionistic Poker Demos is the follow-up book to Justin Higham's Pseudo Cheating Demos and Effects. The first part of the book further explores Spread-Count Stacking, a way to stack the Aces or a full house/royal flush to a desired number of hands using combinations of spread-counts. The idea is to get away from standard stacking methods, although several pseudo stacking effects are described which make minimal use of techniques such as Riffle Stacking and Overhand Stacking.
Also included is a Frank Lane style poker deal in which the spectator deals any small number of poker hands, yet the performer ends up with a royal flush (no palming, switching, etc.). Other items include impromptu blackjack demos, a spectator-shuffled full-house deal by Dylan Holmes, 'Pick-Up Restacking' by Ben Earl (4 methods), and a previously unpublished Bottom Deal for beginners by Edward Marlo. The section on '100% Poker Deals' follows on from The 75% Production in showing how to take a borrowed, shuffled deck and almost immediately deal yourself (or the spectator) four of a kind or a full house. At the end of the book are comments on the items in Pseudo Cheating Demos with further ideas and methods explained.
