For any Poker Fan
9 December 2016 | by anthonyfeherSee all my reviews

Yup raised in Toronto and thus of interest. Immigrant parents who came in 1957 matches my story too in some ways.

Anyone who watches poker knows Daniel and I'd say the majority of people are fans of his. He's a character but this is a story really about his family and is very sweet and touching.

Poker is interesting to watch and I do get sucked in so I know the players and the names and many are in this documentary.

What is most interesting is how he got there and the lessons he learned. I play and just marvel at the guts and how many play the game, which is why I don't as I know enough to bet right, but no idea what people around me are doing who don't know as much as me. That is why for instance when you watch someone like Phil Hellmuth you know why he gets so upset, playing hands right and then losing as the game is at the end of the day really just about luck.

So Daniel learned his lessons more then once, but always got up, dusted himself off and returned.

He isn't shy and is opinionated and the fact that he doesn't want his epitaph to not just read "He was a good poker player" really means something.

One thing glossed over (actually ignored) is his marriages, which is fine, but did find striking as it probably would cloud what the directors wanted from the documentary.

I also think his brother did a very good job setting the scenes away from poker and who Daniel is, though here I wonder why there is no scenes with the two talking together about life, family & their parents.

Surprised that the rating to date is lower then I expected.
