Interesting Behind-The-Scene Look
19 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is not an extraordinarily exciting documentary about a few poker players but it is interesting. In particular, the chronicles of English players Simon Trumper and Gary Bush show the downside of the professional poker life. The Robert Varkoni segment shows how an every-man can rise to the top of the poker world. This has been further proved by the recent World Series of Poker victories of Greg Raymer and Chris Moneymaker. Phil Hellmuth comes off the same way as he does every time a microphone is put in his face: like a complete jerk, family man or not. Anyone with even a passing interest in becoming a professional poker player should check this documentary out.
