New York, Concrete Jungle where WSOP Dreams are made...

Rounders (1998) - “First prize at the World Series of Poker is a million bucks. Does it have my name on it? I don't know. But, I'm gonna find out…” I could hear that in my head, Mike McDermott’s thoughts at the end of Rounders as he leaves New York for Las Vegas and the WSOP.

“JFK please” I said getting into the cab on 34th Street.

“You got it pal… So where ya headed?” the driver asked.

“Vegas” I replied.

“Vegas, huh? Good luck man.”

Centre of the Poker Universe

Rounders (1998) - “The poker room at the Mirage in Vegas is the center of the poker universe. Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, Phil Helmuth, the legends consider it their office. Every couple of days a new millionaire shows up wanting to beat a world champion. Usually they go home with nothing but a story.” (Mike McDermott as he drives from New York to Atlantic City)

The Mirage was home to The Big Game back then and now it's Bobby’s Room at the Bellagio. But it looks like that’s about to change again.
