Great interviews, annoying everything else., 23 January 2007
Author: keliwah from United Kingdom

This film contains many interesting clips of interviews with top pro poker players which were great and very professional. I'd have much preferred the movie if was half an hour of those interviews, but instead the producers decided we'd be interested in their failed marriage, rocky business and their attempt at getting lucky at a handful of tournaments to sort their business out which padded the film out to a full 90 minutes of mainly dross. I wasn't interested in their personal situation - why would I be? They were not particularly interesting people and they had little to do with poker, which is what the movie was meant to be about. Most of the movie comprised of a rather annoying sounding woman complain at her bad luck over and over again like a broken record. It was pathetic and pretty lazy film making. A couple of times she did actually explain how she got unlucky, but if they were going to make a lot of the movie about her success and failures at the table, they should've talked a little bit more about her style of play and a few hands in detail. But like the most boring poker blogs on the net, they didn't. To be honest, she seemed to be a very mediocre player at best. Her complete lack of control over her body and facial expression at the table probably gave off all the tells in the world. I noticed she sat next to Ram Vaswani (one of the best tourney players in the world) but she didn't seem to know who he was, so he wasn't interviewed - shame. Notice at one point she complains at her "bad luck" when she was busted out after holding the nut straight on the turn which she said she checked because of the flush draw possibility! The flush then hit, and she must've then called all her chips off. That's an awful play to check on a turn like that and she didn't realise it - she obviously really overrates herself. Still, even with the annoying woman who seems to think it unlucky not to make a heap of money playing $500 buy-in tourneys against better players than herself, it is worth watching (but not paying for).
