Down on his luck and facing financial hardship, Gerry teams up with younger charismatic poker player, Curtis, in an attempt to change his luck. The two set off on a road trip through the South with visions of winning back what's been lost.
Tony Rountree, who runs the big poker game, is played by James Toback, who wrote the 1974 film 'The Gambler.'
During the Fairgrounds Racetrack scene prior to the start of the horse race, the track announcer says "The trotters are now in the hand of the starter, it's post time." This would be appropriate prior to the start of a trotting harness race, not a thoroughbred turf race which is depicted as happening live on the track.
At the end of the credits, when the soundtrack information is rolling, the first 4 tells of Joe Navarro's 200 poker tells are played.
