The core effect is that you play a game of Poker, using just ten cards, with one other player. They choose which five cards they would like, and you take the rest. Incredible as it sounds... they receive a Full House, whilst you always win with a Royal Flush!
NOTE: please don't confuse Red Hot Poker with the old "ten card poker" routine played with three sets of 'three of a kind' and a single 'odd' card. There you had to make them choose the 'odd' card in order for you to win. The routines here are nothing like that!
As a special related bonus item, Peter Duffie has very kindly allowed me to include his excellent "Free Will" routine from his Deck Direct ebook.
A second bonus item is from Brian Glover, one of this country's top card-men. It is his far superior handling for my Royal Flush Guaranteed routine.
