It's okay.

This episode of "Kraft Suspense Theatre" is directed by Sydney Pollack and stars Jack Kelly as a professional gambler named Pete. He's approached by a rich guy named Ed (Pat Hingle) and is offered a really BIG stake at the gambling table. Using Pete's know-how, they're able to clean up. However, there are many complications including that Ed is a complete jerk and Pete's new girlfriend has a nasty boyfriend.

This story is only moderately interesting. The acting is good and Pollack's direction is just fine. But the story itself just isn't quite as interesting as the average episode of the series and the big twist wasn't that much of a surprise.

By the way, this episode is interesting because it has three "Star Trek" actors in it: Steve Ihnat, Nancy Kovack and Grace Lee Whitney. Only Whitney was a recurring character (Yeoman Rand) but Kovack and Ihnat are VERY memorable for their appearances as Nona ("A Private Little War") and Lord Garth ("Whom Gods Destroy").
