We all know that, we all love it. The 1998 film Rounders, directed by John Dahl, written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, produced by Joel Stillerman and Ted Demme, and of course, starring Matt Damon and Ed Norton, has become a staple for Agenpoker303 players everywhere. .
How many times have you walked through the poker room, or hung out at your local Wednesday night home game when someone yelled one of the following lines? “Kid’s got alligator blood,” or what about “Don’t splash in the pot,” “I just got ordered at the noodle bar,” “Give me three stacks of high society,” or a two-word phrase that spins more and more frequently than Lady’s song. Gaga in West Hollywood on Saturday night, “So much fun.”
And of course, don’t forget the film’s famous opening line, “If you can’t see a sucker in your first half hour at the table, then you’re a sucker.”
Rounders seems to have a very special place in the heart of poker players today, (myself included) and has undoubtedly been an important part of poker history. Over the years I have always been confused by how often Hollywood would go wrong trying to portray poker on the big screen. Now, here’s a film that makes it right on many levels. One can arguably credit Rounders with Chris Moneymaker’s WSOP win and the WPT’s revolutionary hole card cam as one of the most important contributors to the early 2000s poker boom.
No, it’s not a box office sensation by any means, but like many cult classics, Rounders is a film that has continually found its way into the hearts and minds of every new generation of poker players from its inception. From McDermott’s fictional clash with Johnny Chan, to a 1998 real-life main event where Damon is poetically thwarted by Doyle Brunson with KK against AA, to poker great Daniel Negreanu demands in a tweet that Rounders 2 is produced! It’s as if this film has become a rite of passage for everyone who wants to take the game seriously.
