You need to make a streak on the starting card without taking another card from the deck in between the streak. (See quotes).

Streak = "A, 2, 3 , 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K"
The streak may be upwards or downwards.

So if you start with a 6, you need to make the streak "7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A, 2, 3 , 4, 5" or "5, 4, 3, 2, A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7".

This achievement is based on luck. It can take a while before you get to opportunity to make the streak.

Does “without drawing a new card from the deck” mean the first card from the deck?

The first card is already removed from the deck. You have to get a streak without flipping another "new" card from the deck. Hateful achievement based on luck that took me over 400 games to get. Thankfully I enjoy the game so it wasn't so bad.

I thought the same as hikari at first, so I was surprised to see the achievement pop in a game since I had flipped another card from the deck. I now think the "drawing a new card from the deck" only means that you need a streak without drawing another card in between.
You might add to the solution that you can draw more than one card of each, i.e "7,8,9,10,9,10,J,Q,K,A,2,A,2,3,4,5,6", as this can help you open up some cards

I can confirm what erikfred said as I just got mine this way. I had a good looking streak on my opening cards starting at 3,4,5 but my first card was a 8. I flipped cards until I find a 2 and then I started my streak and got my achievement when I made it to the Ace.

Two bits:

First, I can further confirm erikfred and JungleWookiee. In fact, you can flip other cards first and even use them in a different sequence if you like. In my starting configuration I had a 4, which I followed up with 5-6. My next flip from the deck was a K, so what followed was K-A-K-Q-J-10-J-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-5-4-3-2-A. It popped with the A.

Second, it is starting point to ending point, not total run. What I mean is if you start with, say, K, you must end with Q one direction or A the other. You cannot go "up" to A then come back down to 2. Even though all values have been hit, the achievement will not pop. I did this twice, once earlier and once in the sequence above (it popped after the final A, not at the 2 before, even though the "full" sequence had been realized when the 2 was played).
