Used in poker (maybe other card games?) for the last card of that denomination (or suit--someone going for a flush might despair to notice the case spade surfacing in another hand) available in a given deal. SOrry if the description is confusing; I can elaborate if desired. In, I don't see any obvious relation to Cathy's case quarter here anyway. Larry
