We made BET RAISE FOLD, a documentary about the boom and bust of online poker in the USA - ASK US ANYTHING!
yo, Reddit! I'm Jay Rosenkrantz, the producer of BET RAISE FOLD: The Story of Online Poker, an independent documentary about the meteoric rise and sudden crash of the multibillion dollar online poker industry in the US. Our film just released on VOD platforms in North America after an initial run at self distribution through VHX!
I produced this film with Ryan Firpo, the director/editor/grand poobah of poker documentaries, and Taylor Caby, founder of the poker training site Cardrunners and the daily fantasy sports site DraftDay. The film was independently financed by a group of elite high stakes poker pros, and 1141 amazing Kickstarter backers. Danielle, Tony, and Martin - the three central pro poker players we follow in the film - are also in here for the AMA!
Between all of us, we know a lot about the poker industry, indie film, and high stakes prop bets. Also, brag: I slid down Phil Galfond's slide.
