If you’ve ever wanted to really know what the underground poker scene in New York City is really like, then listen to this podcast from the guys at 2+2.
Mid way through the episode, they welcome Ian an ex underground poker dealer that dishes the dirt on what it’s really like to work in an underground commercial poker game.
He gets asked whether characters like John Malkovich’s “Teddy KGB” in Rounders really do exist? Ian goes into details about what raids are really like, and what you can expect from the SWAT teams. And that’s just the half of it.
In the meantime all this talk of Rounders has got us in the mood to watch these Matt Damon clips again.
