    bathroom scene...........

    3 to make 2 ........I bet half the people here don't know what that means...

    i bet if you watched Mo cheeks miss the trifecta (all 3) on Christmas one year, when he needed just one to cover the hook, you will never forget 3 to make 2.
    best gambling scene has to be when Henry Gondorff (paul newman) announces "4 jacks" to Doyle Lonnegan (robert shaw) in The Sting

    Many terrific scenes in that movie.
    Not a fan of TC, but like him that.

    I like the final poker scene in the Cincinatti Kid when the J of diamonds is flipped over to give him the straight flush.

    Oh that is a good one! Most funny thing about it is that "War" IS actually a casino game now.

    Rounders ending is my 1st choice.

    2nd is the ending of Yonkers Joe at the craps table.

    really when you think about it war is the best odds game in vegas, 50/50 high card wins
    there is no way the house is going to ever give you better odds then they have, 50/50 is the highest you will ever get

    But when you tie, you have to bet again, but only get paid on the first bet. Huge house game. No reason to play. The game is retarded, anyway.

    If you REALLY believe this then I will buy a War table, bank it myself, and put it in your living room so that you can play ANY time you want. I'll gladly book this for you, Sir.

    You're a moron

    ROFL. Actually war is one of the worst games in Vegas as far as
    house edge.

    House Edge

    Some Interent casinos use unusual number of decks. The following table shows the house edge under the bonus rules, normal "no bonus" rules, surrendering on ties, and the tie bet itself.

    Below is my favorite and in my opinion the best single gambling scene in a movie.

    It makes you wonder if Keanu Reeves has done some gambling himself he played it out so well.

    And how many of us have uttered those words "Never Again".....haha







    He bet the Chicago Bulls +6 after already being way down & trying to get it back plus some.....












    Just saw this again. Fantastic scene.

    The final Blackjack scene from "Lookin' to get out". Jon Voight was great.

    this, I was about to post "no love from A Bronx Tale"? Or how about Eddie the Mush at the racetrack?
