In a packet of 10 or more cards, striping out the alternate cards, that is from even number positions and placing the remaining pile over it..

One effect is showing randomly arranged 13 cards of one suit. Do the above move then down under deal.. Now the cards are arranged in order..

it’s what the spectators perceive you as doing that matters.
That’s the MAGIC they’ll remember.”

Sounds a bit as "The "Alternate Card" Trick" in Professor Hoffmann's More Magic was its predecessor, just without the faro.

Generally called a Reverse Faro. Lots of Max Maven and Harry Lorayne stuff using it.

See where it's used in conjunction with the (reverse) faro procedure.
