Mike shows up at Teddy KGB's place to parlay his three stacks of "high society" ($30,000) into enough $ to play in the world series of poker. He runs into his old friend Knish. Knish tries to talk him out of playing because he feels they will take his whole bankroll. Mike plays, thinks he has a great hand, bets it all and loses. He is down to the felt, bust. Knish has a rout truck and lets Mike run the route to make money and Mike swears off poker. Mikes old friend "Worm" is getting out of prison and Mike picks him up. Worm pressures Mike into playing poker and they pull out all the old tricks and make decent money.

classic and best poker movie ever
Ever since it came out, it has to be the most quoted poker movie of all time...

Very entertaining, and interesting story even if you aren't a huge poker fan.

Still love it after watching it over a dozen times...

Lingo, lingo, lingo
Good movie, somewhat interesting (but not captivating) script, and fine performances as usual by Damon, Norton, Malkovich, and Landau.

Landau's character was just a little too "preachy" for my liking. You knew when his "words of wisdom" were coming from a mile away. A comment on his lines and NOT his acting.

Overall the movie had far too much insider dialogue that the average shmuck (shmuck = non-cardshark = me) very likely missed. When the girlfriend (who is very obviously opposed to Damon's former vice) gives pointers of her own to him on more than one occasion in "the language of the cards" I thought...wouldn't it be great if my wife spoke to me in hockey-speak! Yeah right, like THAT'S realistic!

Brilliant drama even if you don't like poker
This movie has been given some of the credit for starting the "poker boom" of the last decade, and with good reason. The all-star cast delivers a powerful performance with great dialouge and directing. This is probably the best poker-related movie of all time. The seedy characters and shady scenarios make for a lot of fun. Highly recommended!

Instant classic
This movie is truly and instant classic, by far my favorite movie of all time. It provides and in depth look into under ground card rooms and the life of a rounder. Besides the great entertainment it provides it also is educational when he goes over his hand in his head etc.

KGB is the best character in the movie.
This movie has some ideas that can be used in trading because their are many similarities between trading and poker such as the emotional aspect and the thrill of the gamble.

Life is on a wire, the rest is just waiting
Not much else to add to the accolades - this being one of my all time favorite films. Razor-sharp dialogues, uniformly great performances by the cast, and understated direction from John Dahl that works perfectly for the film. It's one of those movies that you end up watching again and again just for the sheer pleasure of it if you understand and perhaps even embrace its ethos.

Rounders 2
Just read its Wikipedia and it said Imdb listed Rounders 2 as in development. Cool, Rounders is by far my favorite poker movie, it has everything, drama, poker scenes.. what i like the most is the ending. if you haven't watch it, watch it now!

amazing flick..
if u like booze, gambling, fighting and a story of friendship this is a great movie. matt damon is a card shark who tries to go straight and go to law school after he got busted in a big card game. when is buddy gets out of prison he tells damon that he owes a large amount of money and he needs his help rounding up tables like the old days playing poker. next thing u know damon is back into the scene and he is hustling. Ken Norton plays the ultimate weasel.....lovable but a piece of crap
