... spent 3 days goole-ing for poker terms, and nothing makes sense, cannot find any expression beginning with 'ace of' that could mean anything but an actual ace. Even tried oesophagus as the only word I knew that sounded vaguely alike, but nada... Is this totally the wrong direction, or am I missing something crucial ? :?: :?: :?:

You've gone too far in the right direction, by the sound of it.

Well, feel free to point me in the wrong direction :lol: I tried google-ing things that sound like 'ace of' and waded in the middle of a hot debate whether Lady Gaga ripped off Ace of Base... :oops:

If the monarch was ill there would be a need for this sort of remedy. And it would only cost a pound.

Even i cant understand JG's hint. Tried "eyes of king" and the eyes of the other picture cards. Please help with a straight and simple hint.

Also tried ASAFOETIDA which can be a remedy for an ailing king

There are quite a few different words for royalty.

I rather liked JGs clue about a remedy - lovely play on words. Asafotidia and oesophagus are in the right ball park - just need something a bit more regal.
