Ricardo,

thanks for your answer.
In fact I did read Tamariz's suggestions in his book, but went the other way just the same. I'm quite sure I've taken the worst decision Smile

I'm quite sure you're right in saying that it would be easier to forget the stack if not practiced on regular basis, while by fixing images or what have you, this is less likely to happen.

I have both at work and home a pack of cards with numbers on the back of each card and I practise regularely. And I also have an App on the phone in case I do not have the practice deck with me ...
I started practising ordering the half stack from a shuffled deck while looking for cards I need to perform some packet trick a usually do (twisting the Aces, Oil and Queens and so on ...). That's a good exercise!

3) make a cheat sheet. Take it with you. The Phoenix Bingo Cards can help.



Right. I actually stuck one of those on the card case of each of the practice decks I have!

Try to memorise five cards a day. In 2 weeks you would have memorised the whole deck.

Got the memory book by Harry Lorayne, and I started practicing memorizing playing cards. Yesterday I was able to memorize half a deck with no mistakes, it took about 10 or 15 minutes to come up with ridiculous associations, but right now I'm not concerned with speed, but rather accuracy. Today, I memorized almost the entire deck, I had about 8 or 9 wrong. Just gotta strengthen the images.
I also memorized the 100 peg words in order to memorize numbers.
Guys, these systems really do work. It takes time and practice, but it'll pay off! Highly recommend the memory book.
