n.— «Players are often extraordinarily generous, buying drinks and not merely to make opponents drunk. They are big on “nipping,” and this is no racist slur on the oriental client base: it is poker parlance for lending money, even to strangers.» —“You bet I’m heading for Manchester” by Jasper Gerard Telegraph (United Kingdom) Feb. 1, 2007.
