Daniel Negreanu Documentary 'KidPoker' Airing Now On Netflix

  • 'KidPoker,' a documentary detailing the life and career of Daniel Negreanu, is now on Netflix.

Last year saw the release of KidPoker, a documentary presented by PokerStars Original Films detailing the life and career of Daniel Negreanu, a PokerStars Team Pro widely regarded as the face of poker today.

That documentary has been released on Netflix as of June 1, making it available to audiences in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the U.S., and the U.K. that can now view the film via the ubiquitous streaming service.

"KidPoker takes viewers on a revealing personal journey, beginning with Negreanu's childhood in Canada, through his pool-hustling days in Toronto, and then his emergence in the high stakes poker scene in Las Vegas when he became, at 23, the youngest player to win a World Series of Poker Series bracelet," PokerStars said in a press release.

Negreanu, of course, has put together one of the most stories careers in poker history, riding a record $32.4 million in live cashes to a place in the Poker Hall of Fame. The film explores his rise through the poker world and wildly successful career through the lens of interviews with friends, family, and Kid Poker himself.

Early reviews of KidPoker have been mostly positive, as it has a score of 8.4/10 on popular movie website IMDB at the time of this writing.

"I can definitely say it's worth watching," wrote PokerNews contributor Marty Derbyshire, who has known his fellow Canadian Negreanu for years, in an edition of Five Thoughts. "Negreanu's story is inspirational, emotionally charged, and entertaining. The family angle, explored through a great interview with Negreanu's older brother Mike, old photos, and videos, is pure magic, and really gives viewers a true insight into where poker's greatest ambassador gets his passion for the game, and life."

The six-time bracelet winner isn't the only famed poker player in the film either. Vanessa Selbst, Phil Ivey, and Antonio Esfandiari also make appearances.
