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 »
I recommend this movie to anyone that enjoyed the movie of the week about the alcoholic mother or the secretly bulimic high school girl. I kept looking for the Lifetime logo on the bottom corner of the screen. I'm with the other guy that thinks all the other voters are crazy. I am almost positive that these people were part of the production and really hoped that IMDb readers would watch the movie. I watched this on The Movie Channel last night. There is no way this played in any theater. The only thing cheesier than this movie is the set (Hollywood Park Casino). This is Madsen's second bad poker movie, I believe. He was in Tilt as well on ESPN, I think. I welcome any comments to the contrary. Poker player? Med student? Who cares?
