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.
During the last hand of the WPT Championship sequence, Tommy looks down to find Jacks, then checks. This play is impossible. Since play is heads-up, Tommy, if he is acting first, is the small blind. Therefore, he would have to have at least called Alex's big blind. Checking would not have been an option for Tommy, based on his position.
