Italian translation:il gioco delle parti
Explanation:
letteralmente "to cut deals" sarebbe "negoziare accordi, alleanze" politiche o economiche...in questo contesto personalmente credo che tradurrei con "il gioco delle parti" perché mi pare si parli di una persona "vera" che non accetta compromessi, che non si piega appunto al gioco delle parti.
