The Hustler is back in the game with one goal in mind - to be the best again
Fast Eddie Felson has returned, returned to the world of dingy pool rooms and two-bit hustlers out for what they can get. But it's twenty years on and Fast Eddie has changed. The game has changed too; it's nine-ball now, straight pool's dead.
Finding his old rival Minnesota Fats is Eddie's first priority, but a series of show games just don't work out. If he wants to make big money again it's going to be uphill all the way
