It’s not long before he realises he is way out of his depth, inevitably things start to fall apart and Richie finds himself confronted by FBI agent Anthony Mackie and Gemma Arterton also comes between the two. The title of the film itself is derrived from poker terminolgy and is the name of a hand in Texas Hold ‘Em.
