< fuskata (to cheat)



  1. jive (deceptive talk)
  2. (dance) single swing, single-time swing (type of dance derived from jive)
  3. A card game for four or more players in which cheating plays a central role. A player hands five cards face down to the player on his/her left and claims a poker hand. If next player believes in the claim he picks up the cards, changes any number of new cards from the deck and claims a better hand to the next player. The round ends when a player does not believe in the claim presented to him and flips the cards over. If the hand is equal or better than the claim, the claimant gets a point, otherwise the doubter gets a point.
