StoryIn the world of high-stakes poker, Huck Cheever (Eric Bana) is a blaster - a player who goes all out, all the time. But in his personal relationships, Huck plays it tight, expertly avoiding emotional commitments and long-term expectations.
When Huck sets out to win the main event of the 2003 World Series of Poker and the affections of Billie Offer (Drew Barrymore), a young singer from Bakersfield, there is one significant obstacle in his path. Huck is still furious with his father, L.C. Cheever, the poker legend who abandoned Huck's mother years ago.
As the two Cheevers progress toward a final showdown at the poker table, Huck learns that to win in the games of life and poker, he must try to play cards the way he has been living his life and live his life the way he has been playing cards.
