Synopsis

Gambler and conman Jake Green always ran with a bad crowd and it cost him seven years of his life when he took the rap for mean Macha and wound up in jail. After his release, Jake becomes unbeatable at the tables, using a formula for the ultimate con that he learned from two mysterious fellow prisoners. Now he is ready to take his revenge.
Macha is plotting to eliminate his ruthless rival, Lord John, and has staked his credibility on a huge drug deal with the all-powerful Sam Gold. Jake visits Macha at his casino and humiliates him publicly in a game of chance. Macha, fearing more of the same medicine, sends his goons to “take care of” Jake. His life is saved by enigmatic Zach who, with his equally inscrutable partner Avi, offers Jake protection. Against his better judgment, Jake accepts. He soon finds himself playing the very last game he wants to be playing, and there is danger at every turn. But the biggest danger of all comes from a totally unexpected source.
