Netflix Documentary of a Writer who made it to Poker Tourn Finals
I'm not sure of what year this was/title/name of the people involved.
Netflix had a documentary on poker about 6-8 months back and it involved this author who wrote for a prominent newspaper (New York Time?) and he wanted to write about the poker craze. He ended up entering a tournament in order to have first hand experience as writing material. Long story short, he ends up winning the local tournament, beating one of the Poker Legends (Football Player) and a cash payout.
I know this is all pretty vague, but if someone can recall the player/movie/article resembling what I described, please let me know. Thanks!
