Garcia was going into "sorts," where decks are brokenup and resorted so that placement defects in the pattern on the backs is matched to the front card values. He noted possibilities of reading cards from the back pattern and from the sides of the deck, where the pattern defects show different colors at the edges. Just think of where you might cutup a standard Bee card and that cut edge would show a color pattern at the edge where cut. Similar occurs with sorts. Since you have been following my banger posts, I am sure that the possibilities of doing this via bangers has occured to you. Hint: where the bends can be read, since they are primarily diagonal, from the edges. I posted on just this situation coming up at the Horseshoe in Las Vegas -- in fact it was about the last post I putup on this on bj21.com, before Wong insisted I provide my own data on clumping effects of bangers, before he would consider the concept overall. Just take the advice I've posted on finding bangers and combine those steps with also looking for the situations where the same dealers are loosely holding a deck, or loading a shoe loosely.
