    lol @ that cartoon but shouldn't it be the UNenlighted one? Seems to be the enlightened one would do well at the table.

    875k in play - ON A BLANKET, ON THE FREAKIN' FLOOR. I was unable to determine what kind of chips they were using.

    In any case, these monks are clearly not Chiptalkers.

    They edited the script for Rounders 2 to reflect current events. To wit:

    Mike McD: (narrating as he removes his shoes, dons a robe, and walks into a temple with a rack of hundos):

    "I'd heard about it for years in the meditation areas, before I was even in the monastary. A rotating group of ten or twelve Englighted Ones, Yoga practioners, and high level monks. They all have rupees, and in my playing days...it would have been pretty sweet to have any one of them owing me kharmic favors. Only problem is, no one can get in the game anymore. One rounder, Baked Smith, sat under some pretense, but they found out he was a pro, he couldn't even enjoy a Trappist ale without a hassle. Even his regular club, JJ's Good Time Lounge, got shut down."
