Sorry, I know this isn't anything major, but it's come to light once more in my brain and I still can't work it out.
I'd love your views or take on a certain scene to help me if I've missed something or it's something a little of a hole.
It's the scene where Bond, Elektra and Valentin are in Casino Noir D'or and take to the cards to initiate the payoff between Elektra and Valentin.
It's a staged game, to enable the $1m to be handed over, I get that.
BUT what I can't work out is the way she still loses after Bond makes the dealer bury the top 3 cards...or is it 2, sorry...
Valentin still gets his ace of clubs and Elektra the Queen.
Did they assume Bond would do this to the certain number and rigged the cards, or are we just meant to accept in the Bond world Valentin "won" because the plot needed him to, no explanation.
Sorry...probably thinking into this too much, it just always bugged me.
