Ocean's Eleven, 2001
There hasn’t been a day since a thief Danny Ocean is released, and he has already been planning to organize the most elaborate casino robbery of all time. He intends to steal 160 million dollars from the three most successful casinos in Las Vegas. In a single evening, Danny selects a team of eleven "experts" who are able to perform this audacious theft. Ocean's team consists of a first-class card shark, a young but skillful pickpocket, and a brilliant destroyer. To commit this insane and difficult robbery, Ocean will have to risk his life.

Hayroller: The Stu Ungar Story, 2003
This is a real story about Stu Ungar – an outstanding American poker player who has won the main tournament of the World Series of Poker three times. In addition, for a long time, Unger was the only player who managed to win the main WSOP match on the first try (Chris Moneymaker was the only one who replicated this success in 2003). Moreover, Stu is an owner of five WSOP bracelets.

In the movie, we will not find something new – hard times, failures and achievements, love and hate, temptation, and more what every poker player faces, as well as each of us.

I created this list a long time ago, but I am sure it is still worth to check out. Strongly believe you'll like it.

Oh, you guys suggested so many good movies.  I have to admit that one day I started playing in the casino and getting into the game after watching Ocean's Eleven. Since then I certainly have a slightly different look at the game, not so romanticized, on the contrary, as an experienced player (a movie isn`t the best way to learn how to play haha). Yet this film remains a classic for me, one of my favorites. Also, Casino Royale is a very good one.
