The writers for "Tilt" are same guys who wrote Rounders, and one consistent point among all of the reviews below are that the dialogue and poker details are rather accurate. For instance, check out this pic:
Gold watch, large rings on multiple fingers, a bracelet... I say that they have the look of a poker pro (or at least a cardroom/casino regular). If I were to sit down in a game with this guy, his jewelry would be the first thing to tip me off that this guy is someone who has played before and to therefore to be wary of in whenever we're in the pot together.
You may also notice that he's wearing a "pretty shirt," but he's too old to fit that mold. This guy is a real tough guy and not some young buck looking for some fun before he looks to get laid.
All in all, the costume is good, but like the Slate review below, I think he still needs dress more dumpy, but keep the jewelery, to really look the part.
Expect the dialogue and situations to be extremely accurate. Eric Seidel is the expert poker consultant and personally reviews all the scripts for accuracy.
Side note: I watched it last night and liked it although it was a little unrealistic. It seemed to focus solely on cheating and table talk in order to induce a fold/call. Neither of which I think is extremely common in most poker games. IMO, they're just drumming up Hollywood drama for all the non-poker players.
