Storyline

In the club car of a New York-Chicago streamliner, Mason Bridges adamantly refuses his friends' request to join him in the next car for a game of penny-ante. One of the friends presses him about this refusal, and Mason tells him a story of the time he had unwittingly become a thief. Years before, he was an office manager for a real-estate firm. An unpleasant business associate named Sam Klinker gives him $10,000 to put in the company safe--and then invites him to a no-limit game of poker. Circumstances conspire to bring Mason Bridges to the brink of ruin. And a single card will make all the difference. Written by J. Spurlin

No Limit
10 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of men get together a nickel and dime poker game on a train. One man refuses to play, and the bulk of the story tells the reason why in flashback. Flashbacks are quite useful in 26 minute episodes, but they also let us know that the protagonist will be OK (although we've seen in the series where that isn't the case).

Actor Robert Horton pretty much has to carry the episode (BTW, I like that he has a mustache in the present that he didn't have in the past; This shows a little effort). The poker part is pretty tense and its not obvious where it is going. We get two surprises near the end.

Season 2 has been weak so far, but this episode may turn it around.
