Greetings.

I have been learning Joyal's stack, and after reading Simon's book, "Try the Impossible," I had some questions.

Being that many people are finding "hidden" effects already in Simon's stack, I am wondering if anyone has discovered any in the Joyal Stack?

Thanks,

John

Hasnt reading 'try the impossible' (and you should pick up his 'bound to please' as well) convinced you to learn the aronson stack. so many things built in and not that hard to learn. reward the man for his genius...

Some folks don't care about built in poker deals and spelling effects.

I have a question. Is the Aronson stack, and it's learning methods in Try the Impossible? or does he just mention the stack in general in the text?

General, to learn the method read "Bound to Please".

I didn't actually use the mnemonics method in bound to please. too complicated for my taste. I did it by brute force in about a week. I had it donwn cold in about 3. I learnt the first 13 in two days...cold. then I learnt card groupings...like the other jacks...33,34,36...etc. then I learnt the last 10 cards cold. then where all the face cards were....then the filler...and kept reviewing day after day. I had 26 cards memorized by the 4th day and the rest done by the 8th day or so. I still had some trouble but by the third week I could recite them all pretty confidently.
