The secret of the three cards: "Three, seven, ace! Three, seven, queen!" ("It's not the queen of spades, it's the countess!") According to Wikipedia, Pushkin's short story was published in 1834, and was the basis for Tchaikovsky's 1890 ballet of the same name.

What a jerk the main character is, but at least we know his motivations. A good story but I do wonder what the ballet is like.
