The producers of ‘Kid Poker’ Francine Watson and Gary Davis initially wanted to make a 10 minute internet video about Negreanu but as they started filming they realized there was so much to tell and decided to do a full-length documentary that would poker fans a unique look into Negreanu’s life and his experiences.

In a statement, Mike Negreanu said
It was never a surprise to any of us that he became as successful as he did. We all knew that if he wanted to do something, he could. So when he started playing poker and he was good at it, we knew that he could be successful. Yeah, sure, he may have been a little bit brash early on, but I think as you get older you become more aware of your surroundings and how to relate to people and get your point across
Negreanu who is very much like his father faced two of his biggest challenges when he lost his father and later his mother. It took him some time to recover but in the end he turned up and played even better and today is a member of the ‘Poker Hall Of Fame’.
