Click below to see description of the "Suitability" trick:

Even though the Tamariz deck is not as clean as Aronson or Osterlind when doing the "Suitability" trick it can be done effectively by having five cards selected instead of four, however with Tamariz there will be seven pairs of duplicates (2 times 7 is 14 cards).

14 out of 52 cards means that 27% of the time the performer will have to do an equivoque.

Example: supposing the five named suits are "Csdcs" then looking at the cheat sheet I have supplied below you see that there are two cards that have that same pattern:

Tam Csdcs=5c dup
Tam Csdcs=9c dup

To the first spectator you say the equivoque statement: "I'm seeing either a 5 or 9 of clubs, your card isn't a five is it?" if they reply "no" you say: "I thought it wasn't. Yours is the nine of Clubs". Now you are home free. If they say "Yes" you say "I thought so". Either way you now know what all 5 cards are.

See below for the Tamariz five card "Suitability" sorted cheat sheet.

This approach can be used with almost any stack except for those that are very rhythmic such as Si Stebbins. For those that are not rhythmic you will have to figure out and supply your own sorted cheat sheet as I have done with Aronson, Tamariz, and Osterlind.

You cannot do this trick with Si Stebbins because every card will have 13 duplicate patterns.
