Before online poker, Chris Moneymaker and heaven forbid, Pokernews, there was Rounders. The Matt Damon and Ed Norton classic poker movie inspired hundreds of people to take up the game and it remains probably the only decent poker movie out there. It’s on BBC 1 tonight at 23:50 so set your sky plus.
