During discussions, the job is to rob a poker game that is being organized by a man named Markie Trattman. Years ago, Markie organized an inside job to have a poker game robbed. He admits this and is therefore given a pass but will be executed to let this robbery be let go of. Once the poker games begin, the men decide to begin their job. The three men meet and the robbery goes well.

A hitman named Jackie Cogan and another man named Driver suggest roughing up Markie although he was set up. They agree that Markie needs to die in order for consumer confidence to be back to normal.
