Taylor Caby and ‘KRANTZ’ make poker documentary

Tuesday, 19 October 2010

You know Taylor Caby as one of the original online poker giants of the early 2000s and founding member of CardRunners; you know Jason Rosenkrantz as a successful online player who starred in ‘2 Months, 2 Million’ on G4.

The two have joined forces and are releasing what Rosenkrantz says he hopes “to be the definitive feature-length documentary about the poker boom’. The project’s working title is “BOOM: The Incredible True Story of Online Poker”.
Rosenkrantz says on his blog that the goal of the documentary is “to use key events to chronicle the evolution of online poker and examine its impact on the lives of a handful of online poker players from around the world. We’ll be exploring the nuances of the subculture, from 2p2 to poker training sites, along with the psychological implications of the online poker lifestyle and the themes that have made poker so popular throughout time.

We are getting ambitious — it’s going to be a film about the pursuit of true freedom through the highs and lows of professional gambling, and the rare opportunity awarded to a generation of poker players: the opportunity to actually achieve it.”

The budget for the documentary is exclusively from a community of high stakes poker players and poker industry leaders. You can follow the documentary process on Twitter under @boomdocumentary
