Ten Card Poker Deal is a card routine using only ten playing cards. The performer deals two hands of poker letting the spectator pick the cards, but the magician wins every time. It typically uses the Jonah Card principle.

A version appeared in Arthur Buckley's Card Control (2nd edition, 1947) as "Poker", which also briefly describes the Jonah Card principle.

It became popular after Harry Lorayne included it in his book Deck-Sterity (1967).

Bob Farmer is said to be working on a book about this routine.[1]
