Book on Mentalism
Poker Sam by Alan Bursky
This is the story of the very last hand.
Played by the gambler no one could stand.
Everyone called him Poker Sam.
His winnings were legend, his arrogance the same.
Poker Sam always played a perfect game.
All the players consipred to give Sam his comeuppance.
But they settled on payback
No one could spell comeuppance.
Someone had glued all of Sam's cards together
Sam coudn't play with the cards the same.
Nothing but backs, not one with a face.
Anyone else would fold right away.
This didn't stop Sam, he wanted to play.
With one little move, he was back in the game.
Just imagine the shock the other players all felt.
When Sam turned over a Card with the face of an ace.
All of Sam's cards had faces of aces.
But in all the excitement it seems Sam forgot, if you turn over five aces, you will get SHOT!
"The best version of this effect. High entertainment value. Also the bonus routine is a very funny gag."
- Johnny Tompson (The Great Tomsoni)
"The 'bang' ending of this is a routine of a great take in this classic trick. Also Max Maven's write up of a great gag is worth the price of the booklet. Your audience will love these routines."
