  1. Card sharp

    A card sharp is a person who uses skill and deception to win at poker or other card games. Sharp and shark spellings have varied over time and by region. The label is not always intended as pejorative, and is sometimes used to refer to practitioners of card tricks for entertainment purposes. In general usage, principally in American English and more commonly with the "shark" spelling, the term has also taken on the meaning of "expert card gambler who takes advantage of less-skilled players", without implication of actual cheating at cards, in much the same way that "pool shark" or "pool hustler" can be intended to mean "skilled player" rather than "swindler". A card sharp/shark may be a "rounder" who travels, seeking out high-stakes games in which to gamble.
