Re: What is this called?

Originally posted by Peter Duffie: Thanks Jeff. This is simply a rotational or cyclical stack. Si Stebbins is a popular example. Eight Kings, another. These stacks can be freely cut without breaking the sequence. A mirror stack would have read: 1. 6D 52. 6C 2. 4H 51. 4D 3. JS 50. JC A mirror stack ...

Re: What is this called?

Rennie,
Thank you. I had a feeling it is the Stay-stack. I would rather not buy RedivideR at this time as I am having fun working out my own effects using this principle.

Does anybody know the creator/discoveror of the stay-stack?

What is this called?

If I have a deck set up so the first 26 cards mirror the second 26 exp:
1. 6D 26. 6C
2. 4H 27. 4D
3. JS 28. JC

What and who invented this principle?

Re: UNUSUAL OUT OF THIS WORLD

Here's the approach that I came up with based on the original. It eliminates one spectator having to deal all the cards (which cuts the time involved in half), and eliminates the midway switch. It also adds a nice display of the seperated cards at the end. Feedback would be appreciated. TWO DEGREES ...
