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.
For the film's climax, the World Poker Tour (2003) set was shipped to New Orleans for filming.
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.
