Set against the backdrop of New York's underground poker world, Rounders is the tale of one man's journey to pursue his ultimate dream. Mike McDermott, a master cardplayer who trades his poker-playing ways for a shot at a new life, is attending law school and spending time with his girlfriend and classmate, Jo. For Mike, law school is a legitimate road to success, but it's short on thrills and the excitement of backroom poker i games. Then, when his longtime friend, "Worm," is released from prison, Mike is faced with the high-stakes dilemma of dealing himself back into the world of the "rounders" for the sake of his buddy. This world also includes a seedy Russian card shark, Teddy KGB, who runs the biggest and most dangerous game in town; Joey Knish, Mike's ^oldtime poker guide; and Professor Petrovsky, Mike's law school dean and mentor. As the stakes rise, each one of these players deals a hand in Mike's ultimate fate. David Levien and Brian Koppelman are writers living in New York.
