I’ll warn you right now that one way or another this blog entry is going to end up consuming about 2 hours of your time. Not convinced? Well, you can’t say I didn’t warn you. Here it is: Everybody’s favorite poker movie of all time, Rounders, is available to watch on YouTube for the hot summer price of absolutely free. Yes, that Rounders with Matt Damon.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, Rounders is the story of a former card shark turned law student who struggles with leaving poker behind once his ex-convict friend returns to his life. I won’t add any spoilers, but I will say that if you think you might like playing poker or are thinking about seriously playing, this video has been cited as the inspiration for many players picking up the game.
Here’s the first clip to get you started. (Kiss those 2 hours good bye!)
PS As an added bonus Edward Norton, my favorite actor, is a main character.
