Alright, here's one. I know I probably blinked and missed some obvious explanation as to how this happened, but right now, I'm confused on one detail.
After the first round of the poker game, when the one hour break is called, Le Chiffre immediately leaves and heads for his room. Bond takes the opportunity, while Le Chiffre is gone, to place the bug that Mathis gave him into Le Chiffre's inhaler. After that, he heads over and grabs Vesper and heads off to pick up the gun from the front desk and head upstairs to follow Le Chiffre.
1) How did Bond locate Le Chiffre with his tracking device when he planted the bug(and/or homer?) in the inhaler after Le Chiffre left? Was there another homer that I missed?
Le Chiffre returned to the table to retrieve his inhaler (after Bond had inserted the bug) and took it with him before heading upstairs. At that point, Bond and Vesper got on the elevator, and Bond began tracking Le Chiffre. I'm going to assume that the bug performed two functions: as a tracking device, and also as an audio feed.
2) What was Bond planning to do that he needed the gun? Was it just for his protection? Surely he wasn't gonna hold Le Chiffre at gunpoint.
I assumed it was strictly for his own protection, should things go sideways. He knew that Le Chiffre was a dangerous character, so the gun was just there in case he needed it. Which, of course, he did, but it was kicked out of his hand in fairly short order in the stairwell scene.
