Which SW tricks (whether as pro or hobbyist) do you find yourself actually doing regularly (not just once or twice on rare occasions)?

For me:
Gemini Twins
Pre-Prefiguration
Piano Card Trick
Do the Numbers Match (I think I've got the name right, but not totally sure)

Everything else I do involves at least some sort of move (usually mega easy, but still not wholly SWing), or I only do occasionally (usually because it has a set up) - like FTT.

As no one seems to want to chime in I'll contribute, like yourself I use Gemini Twins and another two I use quite a lot is Contact Colors and An Impossible Conclusion although I have altered the handling a little bit as I didn't like the selection process.

"The Observation Test" by Nick Trost. Purists might not call it actually "self-working", but it's not much of a stretch. Great colour-changing deck trick.

I perform "Do As I Do" quite a bit, and then ring in a DB so that I can perform "Transposition Extraordinary" from the Encyclopedia.

I like John Bannon's "Sort of Psychic" because it doesn't require any kind of set up and can be done with a borrowed deck.

Any number of reveals using a basic key card. One of my favorites being to deal the cards face up (and intentionally deal past their card), then to stop and make the bet that the next card turned over will be there card. Then, as I am sure we all know, I turn over their card from the already dealt pile.

An oldie, but still a goodie and with the right people it is a pleaser and still fools the laymen.

Bannon's "Collusion" on Move Zero Vol 1. is my favorite self-working trick. Great presentation on the Gemini Twins plot.

In addition to those not named: Benson's The Bet, Pre-Figuration, DDLT, Shuffling Lesson, Salto Triumph.
It's not their senses that mislead, it's their assumptions.

Gemini Twins is on MY list (it seems to be a 'staple' here)

I also like:
- Aronson's Double Vision (from Art Decko) when there are two spectators
- AK-47 from John Bannon
- Black Jack for Brother John (by John Guastaferro from Genii April 2017) **I love performing this one!
