As If There Wasn't Enough Going On...

In addition to the $4,400 poker tournament that's being conducted in this room today, a movie is also being shot. The Chinese movie "Poker King" is using the tournament as one of its sets, with many of the actual poker players filling in as incidental extras. TD Matt Savage had the unenviable task of figuring out how to add two stars of the movie into the actual tournament even though they would not really be playing. His solution was to give those two players jokers as their cards and explicit instructions to his dealers that the players were not to be dealt any additional cards or to be allowed to add any chips to any pot.
