    Smile let the cards fall where they may

    Hello!

    I ran into the phrase "let the cards fall where they may" and wonder if it means "leave ... to fate" or "leave ... to chance". Could someone help me with this one?

    Thanks,
    Tak

    Your interpretation is spot on.

    Many thanks, Anglika!

    By the way, is "spot on" UK usage? Well, I like it and will use it from now on to make it "global".

    Best regards,
    Tak

    Welcome to the forums.


    "Spot on" is certainly used in the UK
