Jake Yaz - A mysterious man who is trying to work his way up in the world of high stakes poker. His motivations are multiple but the evil gang which runs the games also kidnapped his sister when he was a kid, so he really wants to try and find her.
Thorn (the boss of the gang) might know where she is, but Thorn only plays in the biggest game in town. It's up to Jake to get to that game and not lose his money or his life on the way. Then maybe he'll get some answers. To help him on his way is Sarah Pike - his friend, accountant, poker partner and who knows what else.
