* In ''[[Film/CasinoRoyale Casino Royale]]'', Bond figures out that Le Chiffre is bluffing when he goes to rub his eye - though Bond loses that particular hand, he explains afterwards to Vesper and Mathis that Le Chiffre bet big and only got lucky on the river card, meaning he had a weak hand when he bet big. [[spoiler:Le Chiffre later repeats it but this time, having been tipped off about his tell and that Bond is looking for it, uses it to clean out all of Bond's chips. Bond only gets a buy-back into the game when Felix Leiter steps in.]]
