Boardwalk Empire Wiki

Buck, played by co-star Dan Daily, is a supporting character in the episode "Broadway Limited". He sells mining equipment and is a player at a New York poker game with Arnold Rothstein. When Buck and Rothstein are the only players left in a hand Rothstein asks for Charlie Luciano’s assessment. Luciano checks Rothstein’s hand before saying it depends on the other player’s hand. Rothstein asks what Luciano thinks Buck has and Luciano says he is not psychic. Rothstein observes that the pot is full and asks Buck to estimate the amount; Buck’s guess is simply “plenty”. Rothstein states that the exact amount bet so far is $22,500; this is confirmed by the Dealer. Rothstein asks Buck how much mining equipment he would need to sell to earn as much as that and Buck’s answer is vague again. Rothstein raises the bet $5000 and Buck folds, admitting he was bluffing. To Buck’s annoyance Rothstein shows his cards and says he was bluffing too.
