When it comes to famous poker players – in most cases, people primarily recall Daniel Negreanu. He’s achieved significant results; the guy has been enducted into the Poker Hall of Fame and awarded with an "Ambassador of Poker" title as well. Hovewer, everything Daniel’s got was reached not only due to a brilliant game and a talent of guessing opponent’s cards, but also because of the player’s charisma, his kind and cheerful temper, friendliness and humanity.

The documentary film about Negreanu shows a difficult path of the poker player known under the "KidPoker" pseudonym. It is now he is the cool professional who has a huge house in Las Vegas and a million-sized bankroll, but things haven't always been so smooth in his life.

Cool guy and cool documentary. Yeah, Daniel is pretty arrogant, but he is an excellent poker player. I admire his acting at the table, it seems that he has some superpower as he reads his opponents so easily... i wish i could do the same!

I do not like Negreanu. He is arrogant and talks a lot about himself. I like professionals like Ivey, Holz. They are real poker stars, not Daniel.

So nice documentary! I prefer watching real stories to fiction as this is a good way to get closer to the poker world. Daniel is definitely one of the best players ever and I wish to meet him once. People think that poker players' lives are perfect and smooth, but the reality is not so light. This movie proves that you should work hard on your game if you want to achieve great results, fame and money.

Thanks to this film, viewers can get an idea of the high stakes poker world, including of mindset that is needed to make a successful bluff, when millions of dollars are at stake.

My favorite poker movie, it was real pleasure to watch this documentary! Negreanu is a great poker player, his skill level is impressive. It is also very interesting to listen to stories about other poker players, for example, about Phil Ivey.
