Tommy realises he can regain his own self confidence; repair his pride and a win a poker championship title by turning Alex into his protégé. The two pair up and soon every tournament they enter is theirs but this winning streak and their friendship is eventually thwarted by the interference of Las Vegas call girl Michelle.
