If one will look over the listed Memorized Stack he will find no particular order as there really isn't any. It really is a stack that has to be memorized, but it has one advantage over any in that it is made openly from a new, unopened deck of cards.

Actually, this is an idea that anyone can use with the type of deck he most often comes in contact with. The list here is as made from a Bicycle deck design. This pack began with the cards in the following order from top down, First are the two Jokers. Next, the Heart suit from A to K, followed by the Club suit from A to K. The Diamond suit runs from K to A as does the Spade suit from K to A. The bottom card is a score card or advertising card, The pack, at this stage, consists of 55 cards.

By leaving the Jokers and score card in I the pack, during the sequence of shuM fles outlined below, the pack willl become broken up as regards suits, I colors and values so that no particular | order is kept that can be identified.

Assuming you have a pack that pens to run in the same order as that I described, here are the series of actions used to get that pack into the Memorized Stack Order.

1. Holding deck for an overhand shuffle from the right hand, locate the KC, then maintain a break at this point with the right thumb.

2. Next, run off the top 7 cards into the I left hand, then pick these up at the^ bottom of the cards in the right hand, But keep holding the break at the KC with the right thumb at the inner end. I

6. At this stage you can use the red and black arrangement secretly for another effect or you can show-off by

 1 - 9S 14 - 5C 27 - 3D 40 - 3H 2 - 2S 15 - 7S 28 - 7C 41 - 2C 3 AH 16 - AD 29 - 5S 42 - 8H 4 - JD 17 - QH 30 -QS 43 - 5D 5 - 10H 18 - KD 31 10D 44 - 9C 6 - 4C 19 - KC 32 - 4H 45 - 3S 7 - JC 20 - 6C 33 - AC 46 IOS 8 2D 21 - 6S 34 - 7H 47 - 8D 9 - 8S 22 - KS 35 - 4D 48 - 2H 10 - AS 23 - 7D 36 - 8C 49 - 3C 11 - JH 24 - 5H 37 - 4S 50 - 9H 12 -QD 25 - KH 38 - JS 51 - 6D 13 -QC 26 - 6H 39 - 9D 52 IOC

### THE MEMORIZED STACK

3. Now, throw the cards up to the break, run 7 cards, then throw the remainder. At this stage the 6D is the top card of the deck while the KC is the bottom card. The club and spade suits will still be in rotation but hearts and diamonds will have been broken up.

4. Split the deck at the 7D for a Faro Odd Shuffle which means that the lower half will be weaved into the upper half. This means that the bottom card will be the 7D and the top card 6D after the Faro Shuffle.

5. Next, run off the top 7 cards in an overhand shuffle and throw the rest of the deck onto these.

6. Split the deck at the 3C for another Faro Shuffle doing an Odd Shuffle with the upper half weaving into the lower half this time. The top and bottom cards will be 6D and 2S respectively.

7. Turn the deck face up to remove the two Jokers and score card, being sure not to disturb the position of the rest of the cards.

8. Split the deck at the IOC and do an In Shuffle with the IOC going to the bottom of deck. The top card becomes the 9S.

9. If the order you started with was the same as we mentioned and the shuffles were correctly followed, your pack will be in the same order as that in the Memorized Stack.

10. The packs that you may be con-standy using might, of course, have a different set-up. This means that if you go thru the various shuffles out-lined, you will get a different run of cards. Naturally, this is the list you should memorize.

The whole point is to leave the Jokers and extra cards in the pack to break up the suit and color sequences. You can also form your own system of shuffles, thus getting an entirely different list of cards.

11. At any rate, try the sequence of shuffles here outlined. Regardless of the original order of the newly opened deck you will see how the final list will look.

Briefly, the shuffles are these; make a break at the last card of the second suit from the top, run 7 cards off and pick up to the back of the deck.

Throw to the break, run 7 more and throw or cut at the 28th card. Do an Odd Faro, weaving the lower half into the upper half. (Upper half will have cards at the top and bottom of lower half.)

Run 7 and throw the rest on top. Cut at the 27th card, and do an Odd Faro of the upper half, weaving into the lower half so that the original bottom card remains the same, but the original top card becomes the second from the top.

Turn the pack face up to remove any Jokers or extra cards. Split the deck at 26, and do a perfect In Shuffle.

After this, look over your pack to see if it has any appearance of order. If it hasn't then this is the list you can memorize. Once you have memorized such a list, you can see its advantages over others as it will be the only Memorized Stack you can get into from a newly opened deck.
