When someone hands you a deck of cards and says show me a trick what are the 3 strongest effects you can do with a normal deck with minimal setup (setup you can do in front of the spectator without a lot of suspicain) these tricks can be standup, or using a table.

1) 2 card monte
2) ambitous card
3) triumph

Gymnastic Aces (LePaul)

Triumph (Vernon, original handling, but with a spread display after the initial shuffle to show the mix)

Card to Forehead, but with my Sting Removal line ("Don't feel bad - think of how I feel having to do THIS <point to card on forehead> for a living!") Then, as they laugh, change the card and watch them REALLY freak out!

4D card
card to mouth- Only some forms of doing it. If you have to put the deck in you mouth to get the card in, go with card to forehead.

Depends on my mood, situation and the condition of the deck.

"Homing Card" Carlysle, or a stand-up Triumph.
"Twisting the Aces" Vernon.
"Too Many Cards" Dingle variation.

if I am not sitting down , I think I would replace triumph with CAAN by Daniel Garcia.
what Jaz said goes for me as well. it depends on my mood. sometimes I just do a gambling routine I use. but those 3 are some effects I use a lot

Normally I like to do Card to Mouth with my own deck, but don't think I would do it with spectator's deck.
