One Saturday I turn on my TV to find out that a movie with Michael Imperioli (Sopranos) is playing on Starz Cinema. - So I decide to tune in. Shortly I find out the movie is about Stu Unger the only person to ever win the WSOP Main Event 3 times. Once I finished watching it my first reaction was to go buy the DVD. Unfortunately the DVD was on preorder and not released until the next month. But now this is definitely on the top of my DVD-to-get list. The movie is cinematic actualization of Stu Unger¿s Life. It portrays his strengths and weaknesses starting from early childhood until death. Overall this is a great movie to watch and portray on your own qualities and choices in life. I hope you enjoy it. -Vlad

Well done dark narrative about the rise and fall of a card genius.Michael Imperioli is impressive in the title role with ample help from an excellent cast of pros. Michael Nouri, Renee Faia, Pat Morita,et al. There was an interesting scene when Imperioli and Nouri meet with an aged Maffioso to get money for a gin tournament that Stu must win or else the story would be much shorter. What a performance by that old rascal!I recommend this moving story to anyone who enjoys the bittersweet turn of a card.

Michael Imperioli before the Sopranos portrays Stu Unger one of the most successful Hold'em poker players. A rags to riches sad story. Michael does a great job in this dark drama bio.
