I know it may be crazy, but you can actually use the Sam the Bellhop routine as a deck stack for other routines as long as you can recall the suits involved.

Also, the famous 8 kings stack is (for me) a treasure trove of possible passwords since you can either spell or not spell the numbers.

I wouldn't because the spectator may be able to notice the pattern. Tom crosbie has a stacked deck that has a story built into it. I've heard good things so you may want to check that out.

Thanks. I just meant that the order can prove useful in knowing positions of cards. Sometimes just knowing the placement of a card can work miracles!

While you should not use Sam the Bellhop as a regular memstack, you might want to try giving it six faros, and checking the order. If it's sufficiently mixed, then you're only two faros from performing that particular story trick.

Hi. A thought on Sam the bellhop. I never call I Sam the bellhop when performing this effect. Since it is posted all over utube any spectator can just google it and come up with the method. Use a a sectors name. From a previous effect. I always say Danny your name reminded of a famous story of a hotel in. Ny and the 647 club ( I use 647?club not 654). Then incorperate Danny into the entire effect. I never mention bellhop EVER due to tubule. Your audience will never be able to search for it. I thank Mike Groman former IBM Presidentfor this it was his idea several months ago.
