God of Gamblers 3: The Early Stage (Chinese: 賭神三之少年賭神) is a 1997 Hong Kong action-comedy film written, produced and directed by Wong Jing and starring Leon Lai, Anita Yuen, Jordan Chan, Gigi Leung and Francis Ng. It is a successful and well-received prequel to the original God of Gamblers film starring Chow Yun-fat and should not be mistaken with the Stephen Chow film God of Gamblers III: Back to Shanghai.

Film synopsis

Leon Lai plays Ko Chun, a young orphan under the tutelage of Kent (Chung King Fai), a veteran gambler. Ko Chun acquires his future legendary gambling skills from his mentor, while trying to claim the title as the God of Gamblers, but he is nearly murdered by Kent before he goes to win the final round and lapses into a coma.

Ko Chun is eventually aided by his childhood friend, Seven (Anita Yuen) and her friends So (Cheung Tat Ming) and Lung Wu (Jordan Chan), a highly trained ex-soldier, who eventually becomes Ko Chun's bodyguard.

Meanwhile, Ko Chun's rival, Ko Ngo (Francis Ng), gains the title as the God of Gamblers.
