Card Shark


A card shark is often confused with a card sharp (someone who uses skill or deception to gain an upper hand in card games). A card shark originated at the turn of the century, but saw a resurgence after the release of the Jaws films. Put simply, it is a cardboard sharks-fin used to scare or distract other card players.
