Hey there guys, Is there a way to get from Stebbins to full deck order, without reverse Faros. i.e. without using Ortiz's Stebbins secret in reverse?

Also what are your favourite effect with the Stebbins stack?

You could deal the deck into 4 piles...

Maybe if you explain the reason why you need this, it would help us to give other suugestion(s) that would fit into your routine.

Annemann has a few effects that I like using this stack, for example one of his book tests in Practical Mental Magic.After revealing the word,I usually reveal the cards too.I don't know if I weaken the effect by doing this,but I usually get a very warm response from the people watching.

I guess Seth would like to show new deck order as the climax of his routine.

But, I can't imagine it produce a good climax to show new deck order after neccessary procedure to get it.

Of course two consecutive Faros will make every four of a kind get together.

I posted a Si Stebbins trick in Secret Sessions.

My all-time-favorite killer routine with Si Stebbins is called "Encore Card Stab" by Al Koran. It can be found in "Al Koran's Professional Presentations" edited by Hugh Miller. The book I have was published by Harry Stanley in England, but there is no publication date.

I have a session for Nick's "Stackview" program above which will show how you get Si Stebbins order from New Deck order. Once you get "Stackview," private message me and I can e-mail you that session somehow.
