A film about a spaceship disaster where a team plays poker for their lives.

Hello, please help me with my search:

Color film in English, was shown on TV in the mid 90s, perhaps this is a series, but im not sure.

The plot of the film is that one of the spaceship engines explodes and the crew concludes that they cant gain the necessary speed to return home. To reduce weight of the spacecraft, the team disassembles and throws into space parts of unnecessary equipment. But soon the crew realizes that this is not enough and decide to sacrifice several crew members. To determine the next sacrifice, they first draw lots and then play poker for their lives.
