Famous Hand Histories from the Movies: Rounders, Casino Royale, and Maverick

Keith Woernle : September 8th, 2016


While poker hands in motion pictures often get sensationalized (to say the least); watching poker on the big screen is still always a treat. Inspired by a Donnie Peters tweet from a few months back, we here at PartTimePoker decided to take some of cinema’s most famous poker hands and convert them into the digital age.

The result: famous poker hand histories from the movies. Enjoy.
