BOOM: The Incredible True Story of Online Poker - Coming in 2012

The newest poker documentary I already informed you about, "BOOM: The Incredible True Story of Online Poker" created by Jay Rosenkrantz and Taylor Caby is growing even bigger. Now they released the first trailer, which looks rather promising. It is coming out in 2012.


The documentary set out "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." Rosenkrant says they are intending to explore "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," as Rosenkrantz wrote in his blog on October 18, 2010. However, many things changed since then. April 15, known as the Black Friday changed the face of online poker forever. The producers had to change their plans and incorporate the recent events into the documentary as well.

Because of this, they will not just present the online poker boom and its aftermath, but the potential decline of online poker as well, making this piece one of the most important media for the poker industry. The documentary is released in early 2012 according to the creators.
