John, The term "card sharp" is generally known as "card shark" on this side of the pond, but in researching it I found that "card sharp" is a much older version that goes back to the 16th Century. I also found it interesting that the term has evolved from that of a "cheater" to that of a "skilled player". Gads, I feel like I'm watching the History Channel. Steve Listen to 'Strange Days...
