Co-directed by La Lingerie creators Chan Hing Kai and Janet Chun, Poker King is a welcome return to a good old Hong Kong genre favorite - the gambling comedy. Louis Koo and Lau Ching Wan team up again after Overheard for lighter fare, facing off as rival poker players in gambling capital Macau. All in for both the gambling and the comedy, the tanned duo preen, bicker, mug, and throw down the cards for a light and entertaining casino escapade. Ingenue Stephy Tang (La Lingerie) not to mention Cherrie Ying, Josie Ho, Jo Koo, and model Kama bring some sass and eye candy, while Wong Yau Nam, Eddie Cheung, and Lam Suet add comedic support.

Arrogant poker guru Uno Cheuk (Lau Ching Wan) sits at the top of Macau's leading casino, but the gambling empire's true heir is actually Jack Chang (Louis Koo), the immature son of the late casino owner. Uno calls Jack back from Canada, only to humiliate him and drive him out of the casino for good. Jack, who's a whiz in online poker but a dud at the table, just can't seem to win - until he meets his lucky charm Smiley (Stephy Tang). To win back his casino and his pride, Jack determinedly learns the ins and outs of Texas Hold'em, and challenges Uno to a final showdown at the winner-takes-all Asia poker championship.

People say one's fate has been pre-determined from the start like the cards in a Texas Hold’em game. Uno(Lau Ching Wan), a small time crook turned Casino magnate, and Jack, the scion of a powerful gaming clan lead very different lives until fate brought them together in a poker duel of a lifetime...
The setting is Macau, Las Vegas of the Orient, where the buzz in town is that Uno has snared the operations of the venerable Sun Casinos from its deceased owner. In a bid to clear his name, he has the sole heir Jack (Louis Koo) brought back from Canada where he spent the last few years in hiding.
Jack, an inept businessman and a socially awkward young man, spent his days playing online poker. When it became clear that he has neither the instinct nor the skills to take over, Uno invokes the owner’s will and takes charge of Jack's family business.
Disillusioned and depressed, Jack runs into Smiley (Stephy Tang), a simple girl with a seemingly unstoppable good fortune. Together the pair conquers the poker rooms in Macau until Jack is summoned by Uno's arch rival Ms. Fong (Josie Ho) to represent her corporation in the ultimate Poker King tournament.
As Jack issues a personal challenge to Uno, it becomes clear that it isn't only bragging rights at stake, but also the throne to the gambling empire that Jack's father had built. In the end, there can only be one Poker King.
