Storyline

Tells the story of several poker players. Some of these players, such as Scotty (the professional player Scotty Nguyen) are in it for the money, and find themselves frequently winning pots. Other players are involved for the thrill of the action. Some of the players sit on the sidelines and provide comic relief without having much of a chance at winning. Written by Santijota8

The big bust!
25 July 2007 | by bellypaulSee all my reviews

The writer/director of this film obviously doesn't know anything about film. I think the DP on this project was tied up and replaced with a monkey, because every seen was either too dark or had the hotter hot spots than the sun.

The story was awful, the characters were very one dimensional. For someone to have said that this film was made for poker fans and not film fans, that someone is kidding their self (it was probably the writer/director). No poker fan in this world likes this movie. Even your money man hates this project. To go into a casino and play a few hands doesn't give you the experience to write about poker. Keep your day job. And if it's playing poker, then you must be hurt'n.
