Storyline

Michael Korpi Jr. had it all. Straight A's, star athlete, talented musician, but his weakness for online poker derailed his life. Now he's walking across the country with his two dogs Blackjack and Buddy, in an effort to raise awareness for problem gambling. Dusty Schmidt was once known as one of the top amateur golfers in southern California before a heart attack at age 23 took him off the golf course, and put him in front of a computer screen. Four million dollars later, he is regarded as one of the world's best online poker players. Poker was once a blue collar game played in smoke filled back rooms over green felt tables, until a chubby accountant from Tennessee shocked the world by turning a $39 buy in on an online poker site, into a $2.5 million dollar first prize at the 2003 World Series of Poker. Over the next few years the entire world learned the game of No Limit Texas Hold 'Em. If you watched the poker boom on TV like the rest of us, it seemed like everyone was getting rich...
