Princeton grad student Richie Furst uses his expert online poker skills to win his tuition money. Just as he has nearly raised enough, he loses it all in a blink of an eye. Convinced he has been swindled, he heads to Costa Rica to confront gambling tycoon Ivan Block, who he believes is responsible. After seeing Richie’s statistics, Ivan fires the coders and hires Richie, promising him unlimited wealth. Meanwhile, overzealous FBI Agent Shavers wants to bring Ivan’s illegitimate empire crashing down and strong-arms Richie into turning informant. Soon Richie finds himself the pawn caught between two dangerous power players, the entrepreneur who is running a Ponzi scheme and feeds his enemies to crocodiles, and the law enforcement who will break all the rules to catch the big fish. To survive, Richie will have to come up with the perfect play to outmaneuver them both.
