About the film:
The story of the worldwide poker boom that started in the underground clubs of New York City and went on to be played at homes and casinos all around the globe. The film explains how poker has become the target of politicians who have tried to cut off the ability for millions to play and for many to make a living.

How did poker become the battleground for personal freedom and the fight for adults to choose how they spend their time and money? ALL IN- THE POKER MOVIE tells the story of poker's renaissance over the past ten years, from a game once played only by grandparents and teenagers unable to get a date on Friday night to a nationally televised sport played by millions, on a weekly basis in casinos, basements, and online. An activity so hip that even Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney, Tobey Maguire, and Matt Damon have a regular game.

This documentary weaves the quest for the American Dream, the ability to take risks, and the celebration of entrepreneurship with a game that began with conmen on riverboats nearly two centuries ago. Poker has become a metaphor for making it big quick, and though millions play it, poker seems unable to escape it's cinematic image of something done by people on the outside of society. The film's extensive research, archival footage, and interviews with today's poker celebrities, as well as social commentators such as Ira Glass and Doris Kearns Goodwin make this the definitive exploration on this worldwide cultural phenomenon.

ALL IN -THE POKER MOVIE tells the story of how poker has come to be a part of mainstream culture while also exploring how poker satisfies our desire to play win, and shape our identities as individuals.

I do accept as true with all of the concepts you have introduced to your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for novices. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.
