Tony Valentine is an expert at spotting cheats. He’s tossed them out of gambling casinos from Atlantic City to Monaco. But though Tony has never met a scam he couldn’t crack, his son and partner, Gerry, has just walked into one with a body count. What started as a conman’s deathbed confession turns into a deadly Las Vegas grudge match during the world’s biggest poker tournament. While Gerry tangles with the Vegas mob, Tony enlists the aid of an aging grifter to save the tournament and stop a blind player who’s out to heist it.
