Daniel Negreanu - Jennifer Harmon Celebrity Poker Tournament Benefiting Nevada SPCA inside Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood - Las Vegas, Nevada, United States - Friday 14th November 2014
Here's the story of this documentary: Susan and her sort-of-ex Tim are going broke (they have a film production company together), so they opt -- through a discussion I can't imagine would work with most people -- to spend eight months traveling around the country (with a poor four-year-old boy in tow), where Susan will enter poker tournaments and try to win enough cash to save the business. Game after game is filmed, most of which end with Susan being eliminated within a matter of hours. But she never, ever stops talking about it. (It is soon obvious why she and Tim are no longer a real item... though this later becomes confused for reasons I won't reveal.) Of course, this is all on film -- except for Susan's infrequent wins, which all happen off camera.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
