Matt Damon on ‘Rounders' and Modern Poker in Bill Simmons Podcast

Posted on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 by "T".
Earlier this month, HBO and The Ringer's Bill Simmons Podcast is joined by Matt Damon to talk about his journey through Hollywood, and one of them is about the poker movie ‘Rounders' released in 1998. The movie has just celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, yet it still remains as the most iconic (and close-to-real-life) poker movie ever. Of course, the ones who would most likely con[...]   Read more » Matt Damon on ‘Rounders' and Modern Poker in Bill Simmons Podcast

I honestly cannot believe that it has been twenty years since the release of 'Rounders'. It is without doubt in my opinion the best poker film ever made and i never get tired of watching it

Rounders 1998 is a great movie. Molly's Game is a good movie. The comparison between these two films shows that: the first movie is better than the second film. All cinema-goers agrees with this. For Matt Damon this film brought him more celebrity, but it was better for him to learn to play poker, from the late 90's. Damon has proven he's a poor poker player. Big Smile Poker has changed is true, but that is also because of the players, who have multiplied the number of those who play poker.

It was a good movi with a good cast.
The idea of them promoting the film was brilliant, and it worked some how Smile
Indeed back then poker was something unfamiliar for many until the boom came up
with online gaming. .
In many countries internet was still picking up at that time Smile

I too think personally like matt damon that poker is evolve now from twenty years time and now it is very hard to win money to players eho not try to make they game better and play like always. And this work not only on big stakes but on smaller too

In this world are many people who prefer to watch some movies very often, but in my opinion is not indicated, even if the movie is very good. Rounders was a good movie, but for those who often watch a movie several times, i recommend them to watch other movies as well. I've seen over 1,000 movies in the last 30 years and some were masterpieces, others were good movies, other acceptable and the rest was trash. I do not watch a movie many times because it's absurd, and if i do not have movies, i watch my favorite series. I think people should see many good movies because it deserves all the effort. Those who saw Rounders and have not seen Molly's Game 2017 i recommend this movie. Blink
