The story tells about the talented poker player Mike McDermott and his childhood friend Lester 'Worm' Murphy. The story of the two friends begins when they turn to make a lot of money thanks to that exciting game. Perhaps each of them needs to earn enough money quickly to play poker to repay their multiple debts. It's a more realistic story that indicates about a person traveling from one city to another in search of high-risk cash games in order to get money.

March 25, 2008 This ode to the allure of clipping suckers and psyching out the competition is richly atmospheric but thin in the character department.Read in Source
June 19, 2016 The most vivid and most enjoyable movies immerse us in a world, and show us how that world works. The screenplay by David Levien and Brian Koppelman does that; Dahl's direction closes the deal.Read in Source
