PG-13 | | Drama
As an ex-gambler teaches a hot-shot college kid some things about playing cards, he finds himself pulled into the world series of poker, where his protégé is his toughest competition.
Jennifer Tilly is the only professional poker player in the film to play a character rather than appear as themselves. She is a world series of poker ladies champion who appears in the film with her boyfriend and fellow poker pro Phil Laak.
When Alex is shown playing the last hand of his PokerStars satellite, neither hand is visible to those watching, making this an observer's view of the table. As such, Alex was not actually playing the hand, merely watching someone else win.
