      Quality film,acting was excellent too


      Think at the begining when Mike lost to KGB was he really outplayed? Only errors i think he made was the reraise & using his entire BR.


      Ending was well done

      My favorite poker movie.


      BUT. There are some flaws in Matt Damon game. He doesn't use BRM and... in the last game he played, when he had KK, that was dangerous stuff going AI. It's hard to think that you can play like that when you have scared money.

      Maybe,it was the first hand

      Mike didnt let KGB intimidate him,have to respect him for that.

      Some really stupid things in that film. Blinds were 50/100$ and I think Matt Damon opened to like $1000 preflop?

      Who in the world would make it 10bb's to go pre? lol. Just doesn't make sense to me.

      just walk into your nearest casino and you will see some crazy things ;)

      opening to 12bb's or more is kinda standard for some tables :D

      When Rounders was written, filmed, and released there wasn't a ton of internet poker sites out there teaching everyone to make the 4BB raise as some kind of standard. To assume that there was some common body of knowledge about bet sizing in heads-up no-limit hold'em before the recent poker boom is just silly.

      Excellent point.

      10 years on from Rounders and poker strategy has changed dramatically

      In the live games with my friends, anything less than 10bb preflop is considered a minraise :p

      Also as far as I remember they were like 300bb deep, which also makes 10bb open a bit less bad.
