lead very different lives until fate brought them together in a poker
duel of a lifetime...
The setting is Macau, Las Vegas of the Orient, where the buzz in town
is that Uno has snared the operations of the venerable Sun Casinos from
its deceased owner. In a bid to clear his name, he has the sole heir
Jack (Louis Koo) brought back from Canada where he spent the last few
years in hiding.
Jack, an inept businessman and a socially awkward young man, spent his
days playing online poker. When it became clear that he has neither
the instinct nor the skills to take over, Uno invokes the owner’s
will and takes charge of Jack's family business.
Disillusioned and depressed, Jack runs into Smiley (Stephy Tang), a
simple girl with a seemingly unstoppable good fortune. Together the
pair conquers the poker rooms in Macau until Jack is summoned by Uno's
arch rival Ms. Fong (Josie Ho) to represent her corporation in the ultimate

empire that Jack's father had built. In the end, there can only be one
