Why is The Winning Hand so fresh?

Because 2 seconds into it, you don't already know how it's going to end.

IT FEELS REAL.

No royal flushes, no 4 ace productions. Those rare hands would get you kicked out of any game, or worse.

WHAT YOU GET is an awesome, STARTLING demonstration of your COMPLETE CONTROL of a deck of cards.

PROFESSIONALS: Magic is about surprise. Sadly, most "poker tricks" are too predictable. Audiences who have seen more than one or two magicians know it's "just a matter of time" till they see that royal flush or those 4 aces. They seem so.. rehearsed.

Rick Lax presents the best possible poker trick, especially if you're tired of the "same old, same old."

If you ever wanted to scare people from ever playing cards with you again, this is the way to do it.

I Feel "Cheated" (Pun Intended) Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2015
I love rick's but every once in a while, I buy something I don't like. My last bad review on one of Rick's tricks was "Ghost Clip" and I don't know if you guys have seen that review but I give the trick 2 stars and I say sorry every 2 words. But anyways, this trick does what it says it will do but I had some problems.

First thing is that the demo states that the spectator can put it in any order they want but this is not true. Not even half of the pack they can "mix up" and they are not really shuffling it, but only choosing what stack to go on the top. I was buying the trick expecting the spectator to shuffle the cards with an riffle shuffle or overhand, or even just cutting the cards! But it reality, you are just taking packets and letting the spectator choose which packet goes first-last. This is why I feel "cheated".

Another problem is that this is not really my style, and that is entirely my fault for choosing the trick but I just wanted to add that in as I warn people who like quick, visual, and easy tricks because this is not really that type of trick.

Overall, it does just about do what it says it will do (Besides the shuffling) and I'm alright with the buy, but I don't recommend it.

It's is a really old idea that is presented in a new way. Not something I would use in my personal work, but I could see others using this. Rick Lax is a great teacher and a creative mind.

I am sure it is a good trick, but the DVD is hard to follow with writing things down quick. Still working on it. I really don't have the time to figure out everything. Too complicated.

It's truly amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2014
Rick Lax has put a lot of thought into this product. It is a great trick that requires nearly no sleight of hand, if at all any. He teaches both an impromptu and a set up version, but don't be afraid of that setup, it only takes like 5 seconds. The audience truly believe that you are a master card handler, and are astonished by the multiple surprises through to the end.

Ok Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 7th, 2014
As stated previous this can be developed further to make less clunky. Old principal that will take confidence to carry off, but I think would work with total strangers, as long as you did not follow up with a card trick

The Winning Hand Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 6th, 2014
Riffle stacking is difficult. This allows one to do a very impressive demonstration that is fun and entertaining without doing the difficult Fulves/Marlo/... stacking techniques. Also the climax is quite different than others in this genre. Highly recommended.

Very good poker demonstration Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 8th, 2014
This is a very good trick, especially if used following several classic poker demonstration. The method is unique and creative, and fairly simple. It has many points of surprise during the routine, and has two different handlings for different scenarios. The only reason I gave it 4/5 is because, like I said, it works better as a follow-up to other poker tricks, although it can stand alone by itself. All in all, a very good effect for the money/

awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 2nd, 2014
Love this trick. Takes some practice but when you have it down you have a winner on your hands. Using this and a 10 card poker deal you can look like a gambling master
