Kid Poker documentary now available on Netflix

The Daniel Negreanu documentary is finally available to stream. Love him or hate him, Negreanu is one of the most recognizable figures in poker. Kid Poker has been getting a lot of good reviews (stay tuned for mine shortly) when it was originally aired on Canadian TV. PokerStars Original Films released their first major feature-length documentary with the Daniel Negreanu story. He's come a long way from his days hustling in pool halls in Toronto, but the son of Romanian immigrants worked hard to become one of the most popular pros in the poker world. He's definitely parlayed his personality into a lucrative brand.

 

I'm lazy, so let's just cut and paste the press release from PokerStars HQ…

POKERSTARS and NETFLIX Showcase DANIEL NEGREANU in New ‘KIDPOKER' ocumentary

KidPoker, a PokerStars Original Films documentary, is now available to watch on Netflix in the United Kingdom, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. brand announced today.

The feature-length documentary chronicles the life and career of the world's greatest – and most outspoken – poker player, Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu. KidPoker takes viewers on a revealing personal journey, beginning with Negreanu's childhood in Canada, through his pool-hustling days in Toronto, and then his emergence in the high stakes poker scene in Las Vegas when he became, at 23, the youngest player to win a World Series of Poker Series bracelet. The victory earned him his nickname ‘Kid Poker'.

The film also charts his ongoing rise in the poker world, from becoming a regular at the biggest and richest games in the world to his success in televised events, as viewers witness his evolution from a kid with a dream to a superstar with more than $32 million in live tournament winnings – the most of any player ever.

HIGH STAKES POKER

Netflix viewers around the world can expect to get a real insight into the weird and wonderful world of high stakes poker, including the mindset needed to make stone-cold bluffs with millions of dollars on the line. KidPoker has previously been screened in media previews and on Canadian TV where it received considerable acclaim.

Negreanu said: “This is a story of clear intention and determination, in that the odds were stacked against me, especially in the early years. I want this to be an inspirational film, so that when people watch it, they feel they can get back on the horse and pursue their dreams too.”

KidPoker focuses on the support Negreanu received from his fans, friends and family throughout his career, most significantly the close relationship he had with his late mother. It also focuses on his career highlights, like his inclusion into the Poker Hall of Fame, and winning six World Series of Poker bracelets and two World Poker Tour titles. With a mix of personal stories and appearances from some of the world's top poker personalities such as Vanessa Selbst, Phil Ivey and Antonio Esfandiari, the film is an essential documentary feature for sports fans and champions of the ‘underdog'.

At the heart of the kid documentary, it's about following his dreams and achieving success against high odds. You don’t have to love playing poker to enjoy this film. In fact, you could almost take poker out of the equation, if it weren’t for the successes that were seen by Negreanu throughout his career. His incredible record of winning $32.4 million in live cash has put him into the Poker Hall of Fame, and his six-time World Series of Poker bracelet wins is even more outstanding. In fact, he’s the highest-earning poker player of all time. So I suggest everyone go watch this documentary and you might even walk away from the film a poker fan if you weren't one already. Gosh, I'm such documentary nerd.
