BET RAISE FOLD: THE STORY OF ONLINE POKER

BET RAISE FOLD: THE STORY OF ONLINE POKER follows Danielle, a young mother from rural Minnesota who used online poker to support her family; Tony, a Las Vegas tournament pro who co-hosts the World Poker Tour on television; and Martin, a world-traveler from Australia obsessed with understanding the intricacies of the game. These players used online poker to build a life, only to have it all stripped away in one fell swoop by forces beyond their control. BET RAISE FOLD is currently available on demand. 

 

 

Vanessa Selbst's Top Five Reasons to watch BET RAISE FOLD: THE STORY OF ONLINE POKER

1) Most people in this country have played poker at some point or another. Poker is one of America's oldest pastimes, and Bet Raise Fold tells a very complete story of poker in its modern form, where the game's greats are not characters from the Wild West, but young, intelligent, hard-working people trying to achieve "The American Dream" of financial autonomy.

2) The characters are wacky, detestable, and lovable - and one of them is a rare, strong, female protagonist taking care of her family (who just happens to have the cutest son in the world).


3) A billion dollar industry completely vanished overnight, and not many people know why. Watch this movie to find out what happened!


4) Politics, greed, and corruption (need I say more)? They all play a central role in this tiny world - and in that way, BRF tells the story of community that can be seen as a microcosm of America in the 21st century.


5) Maybe you'll learn a thing or two about poker strategy. YOU could be the next winner of the World Series of Poker Main Event!
