in dealer's school to see what I could learn to aid
my game. I found that many break-ins are very nervous
and overanxious. I discovered a new trick for this
kind of dealer. If you move your cards forward as
though you were getting ready to scratch for a hit,
they will often start sliding the top card forward
in anticipation. As most schools teach their students
to tilt the deck back (so card-markers cannot see
the marks), it is often easy to get a peek at the
top card. A little training with a tachistoscope and
nothing can slip by you - burn cards, bottom cards,
hole cards, top cards - if it is flashed before your
eyes, no matter how quickly, you can pick it up.
As a tachistoscope
is primarily an educational tool, it can be obtained
at educational supply houses. It is a fairly simple
instrument - basically a slide projector with a timing
device, accompanied by a screen.

This was somewhere in the mid-sixties. I was on a
mission of conquest, as usual, and the enemy was myopia.
I had heard that Aldous Huxley had become nearly blind
- he could read the large E on the standard eye chart
at three feet - and had acquired 20-20 vision by the
use of some very simple drills designed to relax and
make proper use of the involuntary muscles in the
eves. Somewhere in the twenties a man by the name
of William Bates decided that modern optics was on
the wrong track. He came to the conclusion that almost
all visual problems were psycho-logical in nature,
and he spent most of his life proving it. Huxley contacted
his chief disciple, a woman by the name of Margaret
D. Corbett. With her help, he corrected his vision.
is when the deceit and lying come into play. If a
bet truly meant, "I have a strong hand,"
then that would be the end of it unless the opponent
had a very good hand of his own. Poker is a game of
incomplete information with a lot of built-in deception,
though, so confrontations are frequent. Good hands
get paid off and bluffs succeed.
