You beat me by hand

Where does the phrase “you beat me by hand” come from? If you like card games, you know. If not, you're sure to use it too.

How we talk
Me ganaste de mano

The  expressions  we use every day have diverse origins and we rarely wonder about them. However, if someone tells us “ you beat me by hand ,” we all understand what they mean.  You beat me by hand  means we were faster, more agile, that we got ahead.

The use of that phrase clearly comes from card games, but even the least timbero uses it. On cards, having a good hand is a bit of luck, and another bit of cunning to know how to take advantage of it. In short, that's what life is a bit about: knowing how to see the opportunity, take advantage of the lucky tap and beat the fate hand.
