High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story, Togel Singapore takes an autobiographical look at a poker legend, three-time WSOP champion, Stu Ungar, played by Michael Imperioli. Poker fans are the target audience, although a regular audience would find the storyline quite good as a human interest story too. There is no specific focus on any particular Togel Singaporehands or tournaments that Ungar played but there are a number of poker scenes included. Pat Morita makes an appearance as well.
Shade is a story about a group of card playing con artists in Los Angeles who attempt to con master poker player, The Dean, played by Sylvester Stallone. Other members of the cast include Gabriel Byrne, Melanie Griffith, Stuart Townsend and Jamie Foxx. There are a fair number of poker scenes. However, many of the card games they actually play are redundant. Texas Hold’Em is mentioned but not played. The players also tend to bend the traditional rules in their favor every now and again.
Honorable mention, Togel Singapore should be made of other great movies that only touched on poker in the storyline but are still great to watch. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels starts out with a poker game gone wrong. The rest of the movie is a comic demonstration of how they get back enough money to pay off their creditor. Honeymoon in Vegas also starts out with a poker game gone bad, when Nicholas Cage puts up his girlfriend as stakes for the game. He loses to James Caan and spends the rest of the movie trying to get his girlfriend back.
Other must-mentions come from deep within the archives. The Gambler, released in 1980, is based on the Kenny Rogers’ song of the same name. Loaded Pistols, released in 1948, is a black and white movie, starring Gene Autry. Film noir poker lovers would enjoy the action-packed drama that unfolds. Kaleidoscope, released in 1966, stars Warren Beatty, a loveable card playing con artist who breaks into a card-making factory and marks the printing plates with a code.
California Split, Togel Singaporereleased in 1974, stars George Segal and Elliot Gould, two Californian gamblers who are down on their luck. The movie offers a close look at the unglamorous side of gambling.
These movies offer some insight into the lives of poker players and their love of the sport, the pitfalls and the excitement. Viewers may not always learn much about techniques in poker, but the movies are well worth watching for their storylines and humor.
