Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) takes measures to try and get Bond (Daniel Craig) out of the card game in CASINO ROYALE (2006). To make the poker game look realistic the cast were given lessons in how to play Texas Hold ‘Em which included the correct way to hold and protect your cards. They would also play for two or three hours after filming had finished, sometimes with real money. “I’m sure there was a lot of money lost on that set,” said Daniel Craig.



  1. Nice scene. Instead of being poisined, According to Ian Fleming's original novel, Le Chriffre tried to kill Bond by throwing a bomb hidden in a handbag through a window of the Royale where Bond supposed to be seating for diner with Vesper, which they failed.

  2. If Le Chriffre hadn't given Bond that smug, gloating look, he may not have realised something was up until it was too late. Again, the villain's ego brings him undone.

  3. Ive had Panic attacks a lot, mainly during or shortly after extremely stressful times in my life, and this scene is the BEST i can describe the panic of feeling like you cannot breath.. it might just be in "Your Head" but OH BOY it doesn't fucking matter. ive dealt with Hyperventilation for over 8 hours before.. after you finally do calm down, it feels like you was just Assaulted Physically and Mentally for 2 or 3 days. not something id wish on ANYONE.

  4. I haven’t watched this movie in a long time. I enjoyed it a lot when it came out but I am only now realizing how good of an actor Daniel Craig is. If someone told me to act like I’ve just been defibrillated after being poisoned i would probably just look like a fish out of water.
