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.
