*TXTNTE:Using the following stenographicsSGNDplpkt
1SGNDplpkt run a single card
2SGNDplpkt run two cards, etc.
[2]SGNDplpkt run 2 cards as a block
[3]SGNDplpkt run 3 cards as a block, etc.
-SGNDplpkt run a random size packet SGNOpeninstead of [n]SGNClose
=SGNDplpkt shuffle off
*SGNDplpkt run a single card injogging it
SGNHashSGNDplpkt throw remainder SGNOpenas a blockSGNClose
USGNDplpkt undercut SGNOpenie. Initialize by taking the lower half of deck, at jog if there is oneSGNClose
OSGNDplpkt overcut SGNOpenie. Initialize by taking the top half of deckSGNClose
+SGNDplpkt return a selection SGNOpento receiver pileSGNClose

So, the above is a set of 10 keys that allows to express most situations. As a way to test its consistency, let us ask if we could feed this notation into an imaginary robot and have it execute just what we expected. The answer may be negative, or positive or in between at 90%. Either way, robots aside, it may help you streamline and manage your overhand sequences. Always revert to traditional words if needed, anything goes.:na

It may also inspire you to think of a different, more powerful, notation.:na
*TXTNTE:SampleSGNDplpkt
Hold deck in left hand standard grip. Separate the deck by undercutting half if the deck into right hand. Have spectator return his or her card onto the left hand pile. Overhand shuffle first card, injogging it. Shuffle off. Cut the half below the injog to topSGNDplpkt

U SGNHash:na
*TXTNTE:We can add intuition by thinking of the jog as either a 'stop'-jog or as a 'start'-jog. In most situations we use the jog to 'stop' some SGNOpentop stockSGNClose secret arrangement SGNOpeneg. adding three cards onto a selectionSGNClose, or, we use the jog to 'start' a SGNOpenbottom stockSGNClose arrangement.

SGNOpen U + SGNClose * =
U SGNHash
The brackets help remember which half of the deck SGNOpenbelow or above the jogSGNClose matters, and also how to 'pronounce' the jog.
