I believe you may referring to David Blaine's performance of Eddie Fechter's Be Honest, What is it? Which is indeed gaffless. Two Card Monte, however, requires gaffs.

Yes you are correct about the proper name being "Be honest, what is it?" by Eddie Fechter and that Two card monte requires gaffs.
Back when David Blaine performed it on his 1st tv special he called it the two card monte and since then the name has kinda stuck. From what ive read it was Paul Gertner's handling of" Be honest, what is it? " that David performed. Also read that the same type of routine can be found in Ottokar Fischer's Illustrated magic.

Route 66 by Alvo Stockman is my go to. I don't especially enjoy his presentation style, but the effect and method are so *** solid. If someone hands me a shuffled deck and wants a quick trick, this is usually first and if you want it leads nicely into a sandwich routine.

Many great tricks have been mentioned.
There are two card tricks I go to when asked to do something with their cards.
1)Dedtiny by Phil Goldstein/Max Maven from his Green Book (also in FOCUS)
2)Fragment by Michael Murray

Based on the suggestions here, most decks are new and shiny!! My experience, unless it is my shuffled deck, most decks laying around are old, dirty and sticky. Last thing I would want to do is any sleights requiring spreads, get readies, f**se shuffles, etc. My go to effect with a crappy, sticky deck, is Out of this Hemisphere by Harry Lorayne. Also, tons of reveals after using the cross cut f**ce.
