I have never seen a video of it. There is a little method to it, but I think it makes the dealing process a little more interesting.

I've had that happen and I tell them they can keep that number or cut until they get to a higher one. For some reason it hasn't happened often. Oh, I have had people cut to an Ace or Court card and I tell them those cards are wild so they can decide to deal any number of piles up to ten.

One other thing that I forgot to mention in their original write up: When they finally have a pile they will use, as they pick it up, tell them to shuffle the pile so even they won't know what cards they have. It kind of doesn't make sense, but you don't want to be seen calling out cards in the exact order they are in.

Of course, I have done them in the exact order, but how I do it then is have them hold the pile facing them and just stare at the face card of the pile. Now I can call them in that order as they are just looking at one card at a time.

Your choice on how you want to present this.

Very nice effect Greg! I also use the Six Hour memorized stack so I'll be adding this to my repertoire!

A new cool thing with a memdeck is the great app Maxim. https://www.murphysmagic.com/product.aspx?id=73091

Maxim is definitely cool but only requires a stack (any stack)...memorization is optional.

If you haven't already, check out what Lloyd does with it using a stack that's impossible to memorize:

Here is one of my recent creations. It is the invisible deck with NO GIMMICKS at all. In my opinion, it is stronger than any version I have seen.

Plop by Denis Behr is very good. The best part is, it's not just a trick. It's a system for accessing any 4 of a kind. I know Pit Hartling has expanded on this idea. The credit goes to Pit and Denis for the concept.

Mnemonicosis gets my vote. I use it almost every day and love the jazzing element of it. ASI’s ACAAN is also another favorite of mine. Still haven’t seen a cleaner version of the effect

Same on both accounts.

The only way to get a cleaner ACAAN is to use one stooge. Then you can do it hands off.

While I do like Mnemonicosis, Lloyd's Maxim app is an incredibly quick way to achieve the same effect, without directing the spectator to cut in a particular way. The app is really inconsequential - just a timer, or even a random text notification that you apologise for and "turn off". By setting certain profile fields for a spectator (if you know ahead of time who you'll choose and can enter some details), the reveal becomes even more personalised and powerful.

Fingertip Reading by Nick Pudar is my all-time favorite Memdeck effect, perhaps even my favorite card effect at all.

What is the effect? And, where can I find the instruction?
