Poker playing may actually appear only three times in Guy Ritchie’s hipster heist farce, but the kit included in Snatch: Deluxe Edition is worth a road test. The thematic deck (but, hello, sans chips?) is made of superior paper stock and the iconography’s ingenious: Instead of the usual suits, we get guns, dogs, boxing gloves, and, well, diamonds. Meanwhile, characters’ mugs — like Brad Pitt’s mumbling gypsy bruiser — constitute face cards. Regardless of the kit’s irrelevance (wouldn’t it have made more sense with the DVD of Ritchie’s Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, which is actually about cards?), Pitt is king!
