Poker is the best thing that could happen to movies- Do you agree? You got to if you are a poker addict and a movie buff too. What’s there not to! With all the mystery, drama, romance, and thrill involved in the tourney of tables, poker adds more intrigue to a movie.
Filmmakers and writers are often found scripting scenes in the language of cards. A silent eye-contact followed by even silent showdown syncs well with the fate of the characters.
Not very long ago, Hollywood gave us one more reason to fall head-over-heels in love with poker once again- Casino Royale. The movie shows the British agent bragging his poker skills every now and then. Very patiently, and strategically, he sweeps clean. Both, on and off felt. After all, that’s how pokermons roll!
The celebrated character of Bond 007 has kept us awestruck ever since his birth in the novels of Ian Fleming. Generation after generation, Bond continues to flabbergast us with his alluring charm and undying spirit to win. A trait very similar to that of a Poker Player, actually, A Good Poker Player.
So are you ready to play like a Bond? Do you think you have what it takes to go beyond the usual? Are you cool and focused? And, most importantly, do you have Plan B & C & …..Z?
