|Abstrakt EN:||The aim of this article is to examine the role of space and time in the play and theatrical production of Dealer’s Choice performed by the Dejvice Theatre at the International Festival Theatre in Pilsen in 2011 in terms of location and relocation. Set against the theoretical background of mathematical, physical, and philosophical concepts of space and time, it explores a parallel between life and poker in terms of expectation, experience, and memory embedded in given space and projected onto people and events. It further argues that a particular social space gives rise to various types of identity through interrelationships and social patterns. Moreover, it focuses on the personalities of particular protagonists, their motivation to play, and their relationships, developed and destroyed by poker, or rather, by their poker addiction.|
