Check out this video:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=2puaI9V8Osc

It's the finale of a 1989 Cantonese film about gambling and cheating.
Quite funny, typical Asian kind of movie (kung fu style if you know what I mean). As an aside it made me think about Shade...

I have that movie. I've never watched though. Maybe I will later this week.
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

Not sure what game they are playing, is it Mexican Stud.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

GOG is a really fun movie. So is the GOG 2. Chow Yun Fat is the lead in both. They both have some some very asian humor sections that might seem a bit strange but the films are great. And the opening of GOG has the best dice stacking ever!

Thanks Iamslow. Can't say that I have ever heard of showhand though. I will try and look it up.

Tommy, Showhand is basically what you said before, 5 card stud... its played a lot in hong kong and usually involved ridicoulous amounts of money...

Mexican 5 card Stud, here at least, is you get dealt two face down cards and you choose which one you want to turn face up. Next card is dealt face down and you chose which one you want to turn face up and so on.
