The Idiot at the Card Table by Val Andrews

Customer rank: +1

From Val Andrews' introduction:
Dear Idiots. . . .

Many years ago a man called S. W. Erdnase wrote a book called The Expert at the Card Table. Any similarity between his title and mine is purely intentional. . . . After all, Mister Erdnase re-arranged the letters of my surname to make his!

I am not a "card-man", even though I can watch and admire biddies, seconds, tops, bottoms, middles and injogs. I suppose the reason why I don't do these things myself is because I can't! However, I have on occasion got quite a bit of fun out of a pack of pasteboards, and I like to think that my audiences have too! So here are a few stunts, gags and tricks for the card-man who does not take himself too seriously.

If you hear a slight whirring noise whilst you are reading this book, it will be Mr. W. Erdnase. . . revolving!
