So I am wondering where to find the formula for caluculating the location of a named card in sti stebbins stack. I know that you climps the face card and then a little math and boom! there it is! Any help would be great. Thanks

Regarding the "Si Stebbins" stack, Allan Ackerman teaches it on Vol. 6 of his Advanced Card Control DVD series. It's a nice stack and lot's of fun to work with.

Here's another resource from trickshop that has the set up, formula and some great tricks.

A previous thread on the Café describes a number of places to find the formula.

The Trickshop manuscript IS very good.

One of the original pamphlets describing the system is available through the Learned Pig Project for free.

Good Luck.

And please, do yourselves the favor of learning Darwin Ortiz' "Si Stebbins Secret." Great way of getting a brand new deck into Stebbins order within 60 seconds.
Cheers,
Steve

Jcroop beat me to posting the link, Si Stebbins Calculation. Good for him for using the search engine!

This topic is continued there.
