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 »
Wow!!!! Saw this movie on cable and it was one of the best things ever. It's so bad that it's good, I couldn't stop watching. The plot is everywhere, they solve problems that shouldn't even be in the movie. The acting is like a bad made for TV movie. Even the camera angles were below that of a direct to VHS movie, yeah not even good enough to get a DVD release. It's classified as a drama by my cable channel but I was holding my sides laughing constantly.
If you like poker at all or even have watched it on TV, I hope you check this movie out cause it will be one of the funniest things you'll watch in a while.
