Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Revealing mistake: The marijuana plants being grown in the film are obviously not real. The plants in the film have very plastic looking leaves with no serrated edges like real marijuana.

Revealing mistake: When Dog's gang begins getting in the van after the robbery, John is sitting in the back of the van with the barely conscious traffic warden. The actor sees the others start getting into the van, so he lifts the traffic warden's head up from the floor and just about starts his dialog. He then seems to realise that he's jumping the gun and quickly pushes the traffic wardens head back down. A few seconds later the whole gang is in the van, so the guy in the back picks the traffic warden's head back up and starts his dialog like he was supposed to.

Other mistake: During the rigged card game, the angle at which the hidden camera is shown would not have supplied a picture with the view from behind Eddy's shoulder, as is shown on the screen.

Question: For the card game at Hatchet Harry's: one of the rules is that an open man can't see a blind one. I'm only familiar with "blind" referring to forced bets at certain spots on the table (e.g. the opening antes for Texas Hold 'Em). For this it seems to be a designation of the bet, for example when Harry counters Eddie's 10K, open, with 20K, blind, which is then topped by 20K, open. Could someone explain to me what open/blind means?

Answer: When you play a poker hand blind (I think it's in 5 card draw poker) you bet without looking at your cards and so you don't get the chance to change any cards. The others that are betting against you (the opens) have seen their cards, exchanged as many of their 5 cards as they want but then have to double your bet amount.
