Some games are played for fun, some are played for power, but this game is played for ultimate stakes. In the underground world of ultimate poker, only one person walks out a winner, but win or lose, sometimes winning just isn't enough.
Jimmy Wayne Collins finds himself adrift in Memphis, Tennessee. Forced to return home to the piney woods of Southeast Texas, Jimmy will face his imprisoned brother, his dying father and the demons he left behind.
As a young girl, Alicia "Ace" Anderson (Swain) had been taught the fine art and the mathematical probabilities of Texas Hold-em poker by the father she adored. But that world came to an end when her father was taken from her in a fatal auto accident. Years later, as she enters medical school, she will need to call upon the skills her father taught her as she struggles with the rigorous medical training, mounting financial pressures and the seamier side of medicine. Her friends and fellow students combine their unique talents and skills to produce a team who may well be the ultimate poker machine. But as the stakes in both the casinos and the operating room continue to rise, Ace comes to understand what her father taught her: in order to really live, you need to go all in. Written by
When two or more players go "all-in" the inference of this movie is that the person that wins the hand at the showdown automatically eliminates all others who were "all in". There was no consideration given to chip counts in this movie in "all-in" situations. See more »
This was the worse movie I've seen in a long, long time. So bad, I was shouting derisions at the TV screen. The acting was from HELL, the writing was moronic, but more disturbing is the obviously planted "rave" reviews in this IMDb comment page. Who do you think you're fooling? Do you think if you manufactured praise that it makes it true or valid? This was complete CRAP! I can't imagine so many people went about this production with their head up their ass not knowing how bad this film would be. Who was the actress sleeping with to get a chance to blow this role? Who is the screenwriter related to? Was the producers trying to launder money or are they just blind and stupid. The "real" has-been stars were just phoning in their parts and taking their paychecks and who could blame them. Everyone involved please leave show business immediately and do something more productive and meaningful. Like street-sweeping. Spare us any other attempts. Please.
