ESPN - Tilt - Poker Television
The storyline has something to do with 3 professional gamblers who are trying to team up and take down the reigning king of poker, some colorful character named "The Matador" (played by Michael Madsen). Tilt was created by the same writing team who brought the movie Rounders into the world, Brian Koppelman and David Levien. Apparently the two writers did a bit of research in the "dangerous" world of underground cardrooms. (That's what it says on the official ESPN Tilt website anyway.)
Other cast members besides Michael Madsen include: Eddie Cibrian, Kristin Lehman, Todd Williams, Chris Bauer, Amelia Cooke, and Don McManus.
The season finale of ESPN's Tilt is on this Sunday night. Anyone who's actually watched the whole season and would like to talk about it here is encouraged to post a comment.
