Exclamation by player about to make off with stake money in game of cards or Feck. The phrase "All a baa" is said at the precise moment the money is grabbed. It is usually preceded (thus giving warning of the attempt) by a further phrase "Sheep on the mountain". Accordingly, the full phrase would be "Sheep on the mountain all a baa!" It was considered an unorthodox but not illegal way of recovering losses.
