28 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robertson plays a blue-collar worker who earns a substantial sum from working overseas. While in route to returning to the USA he visits a casino and observes a high-stakes game of BANCO. After observing several hands and learning the game he buys into a position at the table. The stress of risking such a vast sum is evident in the nervousness of his character. His sweating and anxiety are gradually increasing as the stakes get higher. In a suspenseful session of placing bets and winning an enormous sum for a person of his class he cashes out only to suffer a heart attack brought on by the excitement of the moment and dies. Persof portrays a wealthy gambler whose loss of an equal amount won by Robertson means little and does not affect him. The dichotomy of how money effects the two different classes is the basis of the episode. Excellent performance by both.
