Poker pros take a break from WSOP for Bet Raise Fold premiere

There aren’t many things that drag poker players outside during the 6-weeks of the World Series of Poker, but the premiere of the poker documentary Bet Raise Fold: The Story of Online Poker, was one of those things –I believe the only other known carrot some players will follow out of the Rio is Coachella.

The premiere was held at the Palms Casino, and those invited were among the biggest names in the game; from Tom Dwan to Mike Sexton. Overall the reviews have been stellar for the documentary, but the real test will come when the viewer is someone who doesn’t know the original screen-name of Prahlad Friedman at Ultimate Bet.

The brain-trust that created Bet Raise Fold: The Story of Online Poker was Jay Rosenkrantz, Taylor Caby, and filmmaker Ryan Firpo.

Pokerfuse.com has an excellent write-up on the premiere: http://pokerfuse.com/news/media-and-software/bet-raise-fold-premiers-13-06/
