"Players" portrays a community of 6 poker professionals who live among a larger poker community in Bangkok.  Playing poker is more just a way to make money than a passion for them, but the rules that govern their community follow the logic of the game. They use probability theory, the fundamental theory of poker, to ensure that they treat each other justly, and that everyone contributes equally. The systematic and analyzed way these poker players look at everyday life may seem absurd, and their life style is easy to judge, but this shock might be more over their ignoring their original society than over the way they have built their own.
