POKER meets RUSSIAN ROULETTE in a most unholy union! This standard 52 card Poker deck hides a maddening twist an almost imperceptible presence within the card face veneer - the hand of death . Play your favorite poker game - and after all the bets are down, after all hands are revealed, a final card is drawn from the deck. Maybe all remains as it was. Or maybe the pair of Aces is dead. Perhaps the low club is the kiss of death. So give a moment's pause before folding. Your opponent's hand may not be long for this world. Or then again, maybe you hold the DEAD HAND.
