    Mollys Game is another good one, based on the true story of the infamous Hollywood poker game that a bunch of big stars and powerhouse execs played in until it was busted by the feds

    That movie does such a great job of showing you what life inside of a card room is really like, the never ending grind of it all and all the characters you encounter in those places
    Absolutely a masterpiece that deserves all the acclaim it gets

    Absolutely. Hell even at normal Casinos it doesn't take long to see who the regulars are. Once I hear too many players calling each other by first name I move to a new table, because at that point it's clear who the fish are.

    I think if the Sting and the Hustler don't end up top two it's cause y'all won't watch anything older than you are.

    But seriously, I voted for all the old shit but that's mainly because I haven't seen close to half the films on the list. On the contrary, if you've never seen them, both are cinema gold and you definitely should, particularly the Sting.

    @Hart Break Kick 97 @FyrFytr998 @Jack Fiddler

    This thread has influenced me to walk back into a card room for the first time in over 10 years, maybe as many as 15
    Game starts in 20 minutes
    Feel like Buckner walking back into Shea...

    So it's not a 24 hour place like a casino, it's a stand alone card house?
