How about stacking?

Postby Pepelirrojo » August 7th, 2012, 7:55 am

Hello,

Which method of stacking do you prefer? Riffle Shuffle? Stack with faros? stack with a shuffle in hands? Other? Why?

Personally, I prefer stack with faros, for example to do a gambling demonstration.

What's your opinion?

I don't have a particular preference, but I know more stacks with faro shuffles than with any of the other options.

Last week at the EMC Denis Behr taught a stack that uses faro, milk shuffling and shuffling off as part of the preparation of the stack that can be done in front of the spectators and it looks as if you are shuffling. Then you perform an effect (the Tantalizer) and after that effect your deck is stacked for a gambling demonstration where at the end you end up with all the suits separated and in sequence.

Dear friends,
Anyone has proved the Ernest Earick staking from his book: BY FORCES UNSEEN?

Please, let me know that you think about it.

Thanks.

Hello,

I don't know if is an interesting method or not but I only can say that when I have read seems very difficult. I would like me to see perform the moves to the creator Ernest Earick in person.
If not only is difficult to stack in that way, also is difficult to think that anyone could do correctly and with the right timing.
I am sure that Ernest Earick perform with some details added that doesn't comments in his book.

Truly yours,

F. Amlcar Riega i Bello.

I have been told by the few people who have met Ernest Earick that he can do everything in his book perfectly. But he hasn't been around the magic scene for years and never made a DVD.

Dear friend Richard,

I think that is a pitty that you say me. Maybe someday we could see a dvd about his book or more or less some methods that are very difficult to perform correctly.

Thanks beforehand for the information as always.

Truly yours,

Hi Amilcar,
Happy to read you over here, I read the book too and it seems that there are some methods that are very difficult to learn and to do. There are very interesting stuff on the book, and a DVD in this case would help a lot to understand such moves. Agree with you a real pity...

Best regards my friend

Ferran,

It's very interesting the link that put Bill. Of course, there is not too much about stacking but is a good prove that things well done go around everywhere.

Best regards,

F. Amlcar Riega i Bello.

I like to combind a jog shuffle cull with a jog shuffle stacking technique.

For riffle shuffle - the triumph shuffle combind culling and stacking technique.

More info can be found here -

That is what "I" like.
