Product Description:

Stu Ungar (played here by SOPRANOS star Michael Imperioli) carved out a name for himself by amassing a small fortune in gambling winnings after taking up poker at an early age. Now his story is laid bare in HIGH ROLLER. A three-time winner of the Poker World Series, Stu seemed to have it all. But sadly, his motivation for playing was fuelled by an addiction to gambling that could only lead to a sorry end. Imperioli fulfills his role as Stu with extreme pathos, illustrating how gambling can topple an individual from a lofty peek, and ultimately be as dangerous as heroin, crack, or cocaine.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Based on a true story, Michael Imperioli stars as poker legend, Stu Ungar. A gambler by the age of 10, Ungar won millions playing card games. He was one of two people ever to win the World Series of Poker three times - twice before age 26. But, in spite of his success, a life of excess and addiction left him in tremendous debt and could only end in tragedy.
