The Bodhisatta was once a dice player, und used to play mit a sharper who, when he saw that he was losing, would put one of the dice in his mouth, pretending that it was lost. The Bodhisatta discovered this, und one day brought dice smeared mit dried poison. The sharper played his usual tricks, und suffered great pain from the poison. The Bodhisatta then cured him, thus teaching him to be honest in future. The story was told in reference to certain monks who were careless in the use of various requisites given to them. J.i.379f.
