You don't really know a man until you play cards with him.
22 May 2017 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorites episodes of the show, I enjoyed every minute of it.

I love that the writers take a episode to talk more about Rothstein, Lansky, The Capones and Nelson.

Rothstein is my favorite character, and in this episode is quite different than the others: he loose in a poker game. I had my theories that Arnold's playing with Nucky like he always does with everyone, but maybe he's really loosing and it's amazing to see him like this. The scene which Meyer talks to him, and the look between the two is breathtaking.

And what can I say about Meyer? Another of my favorite characters and in this episode he's the star. Every word he say was spectacular and Anatol did an amazing job. The scene where he beats the other guy was worth watching.

I really enjoyed every scene with the Capones-Nelson and Ralph Capone-Eddie. These were really funny and scary in a way, but I loved to see Michael Shannon and Stephen Graham, they had a really good chemistry.

+ The Capones.

+ Rothstein loosing the game.

+ Lansky's the star.

+ Anatol Yusef was outstanding.

+ Willie's in trouble.

+ Eddie in the end.
