A deck is riffle shuffled. Spectator cuts off a portion and performer can tell by the weight of the packet how many cards were cut. Performer quickly glances through the deck. Spectator calls out a number and performer knows immediately the card at that position in the deck. Then a poker hand is dealt with the magician dealing himself a straight flush. And the routine ends with a game of bridge where the performer receives all 13 spades, the best hand you can have in a game of bridge.
This is a routine Ed Marlo published in the 1940s in his book Spades - that is where the name of the routine comes from.
