To have an ace up one's sleeve = to have (possibly secretly) information, an ability, etc.
What is the difference between the above one and "to have an ace in the role"
To not be playing with a full deck = to be crazy, stupid
speaking of playing craziness, have you ever heard/used the followings:
" To not be the sharpiest knife in drawer"
"To have a few cards short of full deck"
BTW, does the expression " to not be playing with a full deck" come from the second one I post?
