Top 10 poker movies. http://bit.ly/2obfc2V

There are quite a few movies out there where poker plays an important role in the overall plot. Obviously, you should not expect to see the mathematical side or icmizer-like calculations of the game to be displayed, but you can surely have a great time while watching these movies.

While some of the names on this list of top poker movies are somewhat older, don't let that fool you. If you love poker, youíll probably enjoy seeing every single one of these flicks ó if you havenít already. http://bit.ly/2obfc2V

10. Casino Royale.

9. Deal.

8. The Grand.

7. Shade.

6. All In: The Poker Movie.

5. Lucky You.

4. The Cincinnati Kid.

3. Mollyís Game.

2. High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story.

1. Rounders.
There is a reason that youíll find Rounders at the top of pretty much every poker movies list out there. It is probably one of the best, if not the best film in this category. Released in 1998 and starring Matt Damon, Ed Norton and John Malkovich, Rounders tells the tale of the young gun Mike looking to take on the poker world. The quest takes him through the dangerous world of underground high stakes games hosted by Teddy KGB (Malkovich) and various other exploits as heís trying to build the bankroll and move to Las Vegas.

The good news is that Brian Koppleman, a co-writer of the film, hinted recently on Twitter in response to Negreanu that a Rounders 2 may very well be in the works.

I think the national Poker Craze ended and Rounders 2 would be about Grinders who had ground for 20 years and were worn out doing it but had no other career options.
Or did they all go to Hedge Funds and become Quants living in New Jersey to be close to the NYSE servers?

2. High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story.



Amen to that one! I find most people, even in gambling circles, have never heard of it. It belongs in a high position of any gambling movie, poker or not.

Glad to see Shade on the list. Underrated movie that not many people seem to know about. Not the best movie out there, but still fun.

Rounders 2 would take place 20 years later, and they all have crappy office jobs but play online poker after work until 3 in the morning....haha

Seriously, though, I'd like to see a movie about that whole Phil Ivey Baccarat scandal. THAT would be entertaining.

Phil Ivey was a passive shill.

Died at The Oasis Motel where David Strickland also died.

Sadly there is discussion of tearing this historic Vegas property down.

I love Rounders but all the poker isnít that movie is pretty ridiculous. Mollyís game is easily one of the best movies Iíve seen in years poker or otherwise.

Stu Ungerís story is number one on this list no questions asked imo. Absolutely amazing movie!
