I understand that questions that could potentially be answered by using the dictionary are frowned upon however there are multiple words that I see for cheating, which have overlapping meanings because English isn't very precise.
I've included this picture mostly because this comes from a Russian-English Telegram channel and it doesn't appear to be right. In the video, the man is using the dog to read the newspaper and beneath that, it says, обманывать. обманывать to my understanding means to deceive someone through lies. Cheating also can be breaking rules in a game to gain an advantage which seems like жульничать.
In English, we may even call this a life-hack. Alternatively, it seems like I could use изменять as well. Is this correct?
