It was nice to see some of the interview snippets, but the movie itself is very self-indulgent. Susan (the star of the documentary) is painful to watch and listen to. She isn't exactly a good poker player either. She does a fairly good job of losing money and acting irresponsibly, though.
It might also be worth noting that she never actually plays No Limit Texas Hold'Em (as the title of the movie would imply). Instead, she plays Omaha and Hi/Low Split.
Don't waste your credit on this.

"But the real reason to watch this engrossing doc is the real deal poker players that surround that skinny, annoying (there should be a bounty on her head for chatting on the cell phone DURING PLAY!) woman - the filmakers (and editors) have done a great job putting the film together and it's exciting to be in the midst of the drama of poker playing and the family drama between Susan and her poor husband (at least he's in a better place at the end of the film - no spoilers here). I do recommend this and look forward to more from the people involved."
