Maverick is recreated from the character James Garner created in the 1950s TV program. Maverick is a gambler who would rather con someone than fight them. He needs an additional three thousand dollars in order to enter a Winner Take All poker game that begins in a few days. He tries to win some, tries to collect a few debts, and recover a little loot for the reward, all with a light hearted air. He joins forces with a woman gambler with a marvelous, though fake, southern accent as the two both try and enter the game. Written by

There are several problems with the final (set-up) hand of the tournament. The dealer switches out the shuffled deck with the stacked deck containing the set up hands. Firstly, this move is far too obvious to work - just about everyone's attention would be focused on the dealer at this point. As he deals out the hands, the point is to make Maverick and the Commodore think they have the best hand while really letting Angel have the best hand. When dealing the cards to Angel, the dealer deals from the bottom of the deck. That is the second issue - if the deck is stacked why risk being caught dealing from the bottom of the deck? Why not just have him put the correct cards on the top? Third, if the cheat had gone according to plan, Maverick would have had a hand that likely wouldn't have allowed him to call Angel's all-in bet. Instead of a missed royal flush draw, it would make more sense to give him a hand similar to the Commodore's four-of-a-kind, so he'd be likely to call Angel's bet. Similarly, it makes no sense to give him a hand that even had a potential to beat Angel's straight flush. And finally, if they did give Maverick a royal flush draw, why wouldn't they have just stacked the deck so it wasn't possible for Maverick to win under any circumstances? For instance, just have the Ace and 9 of spades, Maverick's only two outs, dealt as burn cards, or perhaps to the Commodore. Instead they chose to stack the deck but gave Maverick outs, and didn't plan far enough ahead to not have one of those two outs sitting as the next card on the deck. See more »
