An "even bet" gambling routine in ten stages with no preparation and no sleight of hand.
A gambling routine which is completely different to anything that has gone before, because it doesn't deal with the usual card games such as Poker, Blackjack, Bridge and so on. Even Stephen is a routine, you don't play for money, instead play for matches ... and yet you win. Even with poor luck, you "scoop the pool". It's all so easy to do, the main skill being in presentation. 'The last Bet' is the only one needing a little handling and even that shouldn't place a great strain on your ability. Altogether there are ten bets and the odds would seem heavily weighted in the spectator's favor, the bets get progressively more exciting ... the odds appear so much against you that it all seems impossible.
Remember, this is an easy to do routine. No set-ups or anything of that sort. You get the full 'know-how' and patter and presentation in Ken de Courcy's illustrated manuscript, sold strictly tor entertainment purposes only. You will enhance your reputation as an expert on gambling techniques with Even Stephen.

Thank you Chris for salvaging this collection of prop bets with cards where the odds aren't anywhere near what they seem. Many were new to me, and I sure had never seen them routined together like Ken did here.
