Keywords:  bait, lure, entice, lobster, opponent
Luring a defender into an area and slamming him out of the play; a prenuptial agreement.
A hidden method of luring the opponent into making an error. The lure or bait must be just enough to entice, without making the opponent suspicious - pawns are usually used. Traps should only be laid if they fit into an overall strategy, so even if the trap fails your position is improved or at least maintained. Always assume an opponent will see the trap: simply playing for traps is bad strategy.
A situation where a superficially tempting move is left available for an unwary opponent. If he takes the bait it usually results in an advantage - even a win - for the player who set the trap.
In a multiple block image, the slight overlap between colors that prevents white lines from appearing on the print.
The removal of small gaps in ink coverage between two or more adjacent, colored objects. When two objects of different color are butted against each other, a small white or other color gap can sometimes appear if the films and plates are in perfect register. To avoid these gaps, an overlap between the objects is sometimes created. The color of the overlap is selected to minimize the visual effect of the overlap, and yet fill the Trap space as necessary.
The overlapping of ink where one color meets another to prevent paper from showing through.

Money is trapped in the pot if it faces the imminent danger of becoming dead money. Typically you're trapped if after putting some money in the pot you're faced with the proposition of calling a raise in order to continue, especially an uncomfortably large raise. A player is also said to be trapped if caught calling (e.g. on a draw) between two other players who keep raising and re-raising each other.
An exception caused by an A-line instruction.
The suspension of a thread from its normal sequence of execution to handle an exception.
A change in system state that is caused by an exception and that may be detected by the executing program that took the exception. Traps are hardware features that may be enabled or disabled. If traps are enabled, they can change the flow of control in the program that took the exception. In response to a trap, the system may generate a signal (for example, SIGFPE), which the program can detect. Such a program can be designed to handle traps. HP Fortran 90 provides the ON statement to handle traps.

The Vampire Trap was invented for James Planche's 1820 adaption of Polidori's The Vampyr. It involved two spring leaves that parted under pressure and immediately reclosed. Placed in the floor or stage wall, it could give the impression a figure was passing through solid matter. The Corsican Trap, made for Dion Boucicault's 1852 adaption of Alexandre Dumas' The Corsican Brothers, involved an ascending track, on which a wheeled cart could be run, rising up out of the stage through a 'bristle' trap - a trapdoor covered with bristles painted to match the scenery. Once on the stage and in view, the track was covered by a sliding arrangement reminiscent of that of a roll- top desk; towhit, nothing was seen except the ghost rising up through the floor and gliding across the stage.
