I can't figure out how the phone does it. Smile
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I rarely do over 40 min of practice daily. I think my average is about 30-35 mins. And sometimes, then, 40 or a tad more. People have always been surprised to read that, thinking I practice for hours, but truth is very different.

I have the right tools and the right methods, there is no need to practice for hours. I have never understood that. What matters is GOOD practice, not how many hours you do. In fact, in my inner self, I think that if you need to practice that much it means that you suck...

I just came across this post and really took it to heart. I'm going to make sure I'm practicing this way from now on. Truly focused and in the now. Thanks AMcD.

You may be the only one who picked up on this. Very impressive.

It is a very cleverly gaffed phone, programmed by Dan Madison. The stacking routine or exercise (4 hands of two cards, with the position of the two cards varying from hands 1, 2, 3, or 4) is automatically generated by the phone. The phone sends electronic transmissions to the neural transmitters that we all have, enabling the demonstrator to perform this exercise automatically without effort or thought.

Actually, anyone can do this if he or she has the programmed phone.

In AMcD's case the phone is legitimate and he just has evidently put in a lot of work with this exercise. By practicing assiduously, he has actually programed his neural transmitters to perform this routine without relying on outside electronic signals or impulses.

However, the easiest way to do this exercise is by using the gaffed phone. If one has the correct phone (only available from DanMadison LLC) the demonstrator can actually do this under fire. Since having the phone generate random numbers at the gaming table might attract attention from the more observant players, the newer versions send the signals from a remote location.

The only problem with this excellent methodology is one is limited to a four handed game. Smile

1) - The phone is used for generating random numbers and the stopwatch allows to check nothing is faked/accelerated, etc.

2) - It's just a (difficult) drill, nothing else.
