For those of you out there that utilize the Redford Stack, does anyone happen to have a mapping of Denis Behr's Quartets principle applied to the stack? Would like to avoid recreating the wheel if anyone has already worked this out and is able to share. Thanks!

Giving the build in Si Stebbin nature of the stack
I've found that the Quartets principle is not great for culling using the Redford stack
but instead with Aronson's Flash Speller principle will produce some interesting result.

While I don't disagree that Aronson's Flash Speller is an amazing principle that everyone should have in their arsenal, I'm unclear on your proposition to use it instead of Quartets for culling out four-of-a-kind. If I need to quickly get all four cards of one value to the bottom of the deck, ensure one of each of a value is on the bottom of a series of cut off packets (or top, I guess, in the case of Harling's "Top of the Heaps"), or any of the other myriad of Quartet-based effects, how does knowing how many letters are in a specific card name assist in this?

If you're part of our facebook group, I just posted all of the quartets when starting with hearts cut to the face there!
