We've all wondered what it must be like to take a seat at the final table of the World Series of Poker. The glamour of Vegas, the intense media scrutiny, the pressure of playing for ridiculous amounts of cash. TV viewers will be able to get a glimpse of what it is really like courtesy of a new documentary that followed young Englishman Sam Holden all the way to the November Nine.
