In this demo three hands of draw poker are dealt out. A royal flush in spades is delivered from the bottom of the deck into one of the three hands. I do not mention which one if the hand that receives the cards "from the cellar" in this text, just in case some viewers may wish to watch the video without knowing the answer in advance. However, given the top viewing angle in this video, the bottom deal should be more apparent than if seen from across the card table.

Please note that the five cards are dealt in the first round from a full deck. This may make an interesting demo but it makes for poor cheating strategy in a real poker game. In the game of draw poker, a bottom deal would most likely be used during the draw, after the cheat(s) decide if it is worth cheating the particular round; depending of the outcome of the first round of betting.
