I found a packet of gaff cards in my drawer (again, I had a similar post on this forum a while back). The cards are in a plastic wallet: Ace of Diamonds with a corner of the 3 of Spades, 3ofSpades with a corner pip of the Ace of Diamonds, a normal Ace of Diamonds, a normal 3 of Spades, a normal 2 of Spades, and another normal 2 of Spades.
What's the name of the trick?

These gaff cards are used to do a three card monte.
you have to bend a little the corner.

I think it is from a CAJ deck although I am sure others have these gaffs.

..Although there seems to be too much cards for a THREE card monte...I know you can use them for that.

It's a three card monte. The cards could be used for several versions of three card monte. Probably the best known version today is Michael Skinner's Ultimate Three Card Monte. Don't bend the corner until you know which version you want to use them for. You can see a video of Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki performing a jumbo card version on my site in The Wizards' Journal #17.
