Card Cheater Or Aristocrat?

When performing fraudulent removal (“volts”), the nail is used for marking when dividing cards. Having seen this (long nail) in childhood in yard type companies, many also grew this very nail in imitation of older comrades. Many people still have the habit ... Now you understand how Lukashenka has managed to knock out subsidies from Russia for so long?
