The new documentary film, Kid Poker, about Canadian poker pro Daniel Negreanu debuted at the Toronto Film Festival the other night.
There has not been a good poker documentary since Bet Raise Fold (2013). Kid Poker tells the rages-to-riches tale about Negreanu, who's family emigrated to Canada from Romania with only $5 to their name. As the rest of the story goes, young pool hustler and bourgeoning card shark Negreanu moved to Las Vegas to pursue a career in poker. And of course, you know the rest of that story.
Kid Poker will appear on Canadian TV channel TSN4 on December 1st. No official word on an American debut or any international airings, but the entire film will eventually be posted on PokerStars Blog.
Here's the trailer for Kid Poker...
