…as I’m really tired of this one.

Warning, Spoiler Alert
If you’re planning on seeing the new poker movie Deal, please don’t read any further!!!
Also if you haven’t seen All-In or Lucky You, the same warning applies!!!
You’ve been warned…
Warning, Spoiler Alert

I watched the movie and as with any poker movie so far, I’ve been looking forward to seeing it. In the end, I couldn’t help but be disappointed – yet again. How come that ever poker movie that’s coming out sticks to the same bs ending? Someone laying down the best hand to let someone else win…

Example#1: All-in: Father folds straight flush and let’s daughter win, duh!
Example#2: Lucky You: Son let’s father win as he fold Aces to his Kings, duh!
…and now in Deal…young prodigy lays down Aces vs Jacks of his “mentor” on the A33xx board, duh! And while we’re at it, since when does the WPT championship pay more than 8 million for first along with a bracelet? Am I missing something here?

Come on people, what is this? The re-run of the re-run of the re-run? Besides, those hands and one person mucking the best hand is total bullshit. There, I said it…end rant.
