Hey guys,
I usually hate posting topics like this because we tend to get a lot of the same ones.
I've been trying to find this effect for like 10 years though so I'll ask if anyone knows where it is. Mainly because I just found a video of it being performed. The one thing I can think of is a stripper deck, but that might be too hard considering how many things he gets right.
Anyways, here's the video:

any help is greatly appreciated. Mainly I'm looking for a source to learn it. Thanks.

No trick cards, just exceptional card handling skills. The most popular version of this is called "Sam the Bellhop" or simply "654 Club" The most popular teaching video is the one by Bill Malone.

Bill Malone has an excellent one.

I should however like to point out that the genre is "StoryTelling Deck" and David Regal AND Simon Lovell both have good ones that use a COMPLETELY different presentation, but the same effect. The effect here is James Galea's original presentation for this; Bill Malone teaches the classic Sam The Bellhop.

world's greatest magic has a video on story telling decks

I agree with Chris about Bil Malone's DVD... it's a great resource

What I actually did is I made my own story (Very similar to James') a while ago and just learned some false shuffles and cuts and went from there... I may post a video of me doing it sometime

Bucky, If you buy malone's dvd then you will be able to use the same principals and such to adapt to this, but from your knowledge on the forums and what people have already said I assume you know how it has been done. Deck stacks and exceptional handling skills.
