Joey is a great poker player: ruthless, sharp, and hugely aware. At twenty-five, he knows more about himself and the human spirit than most people learn in a lifetime. In cards and in life he plays honestly - true to himself, the game, his friends and enemies alike. But when a perennial loser who Joey beats blows himself away, Joey's poker freedom starts to crumble, and his game confidence with it. Suddenly the stakes have changed, and everything's wild. Between communities - rich and poor, black and white, Asian and American - Joey's getting squeezed, his loyalties divided. He's a poker-boss at the newest charity casino, but it's got too many wiseguys and not enough wisdom. His latest girlfriend is gambling-obsessed, desperate for the action that has her addicted. And his old girlfriend, pregnant and angry, is forcing love into his life with a baby who might not be his. It may just be time for Joey to put down his cards and walk away from the table.
