CHO Seung-woo

It's an honor to meet you.

I only take half of the earnings.

Just half?


Is that too much?

KIM Hye-soo

Do I know Goni?

He's the best I've seen.

No lies, no limits.

Great hand!

Come on, come on!


You weren't very lucky today.

I was just getting

a feel for it.

BAEK Yoon-sik

That man is...

a pro.

One, three, five,

Seven, nine,

Let's put them in that order.

YOO Hae-jin

To give you a sign.

Then you spill the drink.

I'll pretend to wipe it off.

I'll get a seven.

- Seven pair!

- Collect your winnings.

What you have?

Nine pair!

To Seoul.

- You're pretty good.

- I know.

Producer/LEE Suk-won

Why do I always have to

buy the tickets?

Always, you're so lazy.

Move! There's no room.

We should have stayed

a couple of more days.

- That guy knows.

- How?


I'll get on first.

To make huge money!


The High Rollers

You ask me why people gamble?

Who knows?

Thanks for the drink.

You're not going home?

Want to join?

No. I'm just looking.

Why don't you start studying

to get into college?

I call 40.

Diplomas don't guarantee

money anymore.

You don't have any money.

I got money.

Eight pair!

Then sit.

I can join you?

Goni, Know how to play sotda?

Of course I do.

What do you think?

Lend me 1 million won.

One million won?

How will you pay me back?

With the money

I win from this.


What a pretty word.

It means war of flowers.

You know what turns people

into fools at a hwatu game?


False hope.

That's what life is about.

Get yourself something to eat.

I know it hurts to lose.

When he lost the money

he saved up for 3 years...

Goni said he felt

as if he were all alone.

But what could he do?

Everyone goes through that.

You go to work whenever you want.

You might as well quit your job!

You hear me?

- Quit that lousy job of yours.

- Stop it!

They gave me the day off!

Then go out to meet your sister.

She's coming today?

I wonder how much she got

for alimony.

That money is off limits

to all of you.


Hey! Miss!

Did you take the bus?

- How've you been?

- Good.

- Help me with this.

- Sure.

You stay home, Goni.

Watch over the money.

We're going to your

father's grave.

We can talk after I get back.


Talk about what?

It's all over now.

Don't worry.

Don't do this.

You must be out of your mind.

No! Don't!

Goni! You fold?

Be quiet.

I can't concentrate.

I need more money.

What time is it? Stay here.

I'll be right back.

Can I hitch a ride?

Goni swore to kill himself

if he lost all that money.



Raise the stakes

once you get an eight pair.

How do you know

I'll get that?

Just do as I say

You'll get your money back.


Let's play.

Ouch! Excuse my clumsiness.

What did I do, Goni?

This hand sucks.

You can't fold so soon.

- Ten pairs is out.

- You can't die on me.

I can't help it.


Let's start with 2 mil.

Those are 1 and 8.

I got 8.

That means he has the 1.

And I raise you.

I see you and raise you.

Okay, he's got one pair.

I raise 6 mil. Total of 10.

Is this your last round?
