“POKERFACE”, my Short Screenplay Challenge 2013 Round #1 submission

NYCMidnight runs a short screenplay contest, which I entered this fall.  Writers are given a genre, location, and an object, and have 48 hours to write an original, 5 page screenplay.

Despite catastrophic computer failure this weekend, I managed to get in my submission for Round #2 before the deadline.  Whew!

I thought I’d share my Round #1 submission, which scored 14/15 points, and puts me in a good position for Round #2, the first elimination round.

My genre was Thriller, my location was a poker room, and my object was a laptop computer.

An online poker game has deadly consequences.

WARNING: Language, violence.

I’ll share my Round #2 submission when results are announced.
