On Sunday, a trailer for an upcoming poker documentary called 10 for 10 was uploaded to youtube. 10 for 10 is about Martin Jacobson's historic run at the 2014 Main Event (he bested a field of 6,683 entrants to win the title and $10 million). The team behind the documentary, Natural Stacks, describes their creation in the following way...
"Last July 6,683 players from around the world each paid $10,000 to compete for the World Series Of Poker Main Event Championship and its $10,000,000 prize. Seven days later, the final table was set. Martin Jacobson, the Swede, returned to the Rio that November ranked eighth out of nine players and determined to make this time different. Playing from the short stack and facing an insurmountable lead held by Jorryt Van Hoof, will Jacobson be able to capture the WSOP bracelet and make poker history?"
This sounds like it could be a very interesting documentary,it is always good to follow the winners progress throughout a competition and in an event like the main event the emotions must be going through hell,you know that you could be playing like a genius but it can all go wrong in one hand.
Klash23 said it all, i subscrive him on this statement, and i can't wait to see.
This kind of documentary is a very good promotion for poker world, and see guys like this is a very good thing for call other and more players to the game. And see the backstage of all is allways nice and a very good felling.
This documentary will open many heads and fullfil a very large group of players.
Not sure I care about this guy nor the history he's made, documentaries of this kind lack the basic requirement to make a documentary in the first place (be neutral with the subject you are showing). They obviously showing him in a positive manner, where is the fun in there?
