Yeah, it just means your money card; the perfect card.It's not an acronym, but it's like "gin". It comes from gin rummy, I'm sure.

Added 'gin' and 'nit'. I think they're adequate, but if someone feels the definitions are weak, feel free to suggest something else.

Thank you sir.So is nit the same as a "rock"? I guess I figured it was even more anal retentive/tighter than a frogs ass than a rock?

Well...I think there's a little distinction. In my mind, a rock is a very tight player...whereas a nit is more "cheap" and avoids "gambling" as much as possible. Basically, neither's likely to give much action, but the motivations might be slightly different.
