Stacks and Stacks of Cards by Val Evans

Excerpt from the introduction:

About ten years ago the writer spent some time in 'doping' out a few poker deals as well as other games. He was fairly successful as the following stacks will attest. They are not all perfect and possibly may be bettered and improved, but he will say this much, he has not as yet run across any prearrangements that equal them. Incidentally one of the best poker deals on the market retailing for over two dollars is based on an arrangement that the writer created around 1920.
