Episode Summary

EDIT
The Gambler (2)
AIRED:
Alexei Ivanovitch is a tutor in the household of a Russian general in the 1860s, and he is addicted to gambling. He swears he will quit as soon as he breaks even - but of course that will never happen. He is trying to break through the wall of the established order and is drawn into the whirlpool of the roulette wheel. Polina Alexandrovna is the woman Alexei loves. His tangled love affairs and complicated life centre on the fatal attractions of gambling, both at home in Russia and at the fashionable German watering holes.moreless
