Rounders (11/12)

Pin It

A law school student (Matt Damon) loses his tuition money and everything else he has saved in a high stakes poker game. Learning his lesson (he thinks), he vows to his girl friend (Mol Gretchen) to give up playing forever. That lasts until his best friend (Edward Norton), a notorious card shark, is released from prison and drags him back into the circuit to pay debts he has incurred to a Russian mobster (John Malkovich). John Turturro also appears as a career poker player and Martin Landau plays a law professor who understands his student’s need to be something other than what is dictated to him.

    @Bell0my I hate having the highest rated comment on this video because I am continually tempted to school you guys on watching this movie. Unless you’re trolling me in which case, nice job. Re-watch the scene. Damon specifically says that he played tight, and mostly folded, for an hour. Does folding most hands mean doubling and tripling up to you?

  2. Bell0my Says:

    he could easily have doubled or tripled up in that hour to more than 6k.

    @cptnbennett I know….who was consulting on this movie? I love that there is a poker movie out there, but whaaaat? As the poster says below 25/50 and he opens 20x? WTF?

  4. cptnbennett Says:

    @shahrukh877 I re-watched it because maybe I was wrong, but at 6:39, John Tuturro said that he needed 50 or 60 grand to sit in that game, and Damon responded with “Well I had 6.”

  5. shahrukh877 Says:

    @cptnbennett I think he said 60K not 6K

    @cptnbennett why would johnny fold to a 5 bet in limit holdem

  15. supasonic7 Says:

    I just realized that he had a bankroll of 30000. I mean it may be bad BR management, but he could have bought into the world series of poker and still have a stack to play with

    I see a lot of know-it-alls posting in the the comments… a bunch of people who didn’t know a damn thing about poker when this movie came out.

    Far too much ego indeed.

  24. wirra436 Says:

  25. Torment87 Says:
