If you mean how did the term "presto" work its way into poker speak, here
is the story.
There used to be a club in London called the Presto Club. The address was
55 Victoria Street, London. Therefore, whenever someone was dealt 55 in
hold'em, they'd say they were dealt "Presto", because of the club's street
address. When English players played events worldwide, the word spread,
and it caught on everywhere.
I hope this answers your question.
