New Poker Documentary Incoming from Krantz + Taylor Caby

Krantz and Ryan Firpo, the guys who brought you Busto to Robusto 1 and 2, are teaming up with Taylor "Green Plastic" Caby in an attempt to produce the definitive poker documentary.

This is music to our ears since the first Robusto is an awesome look at online poker, especially for the layperson.

Ryan Firpo is the man who provided the technical expertise for that project and he's back to do it again for what they're calling Boom: The Incredible True Story of Online Poker.

Where Robusto focuses on one player per episode, and just flirts with bigger-picture concepts, Boom is hoping to achieve more ambitious goals.

In a recent blog post on the subject Krantz says, "it’s going to be a film about the pursuit of true freedom through the highs and lows of professional gambling, and the rare opportunity awarded to a generation of poker players: the opportunity to actually achieve it."

With financial backing apparently coming from a group of high-stakes poker players and people within the poker industry this project might have a chance at a more mainstream audience.

It's tough to say exactly what route they'll take as far as subject matter but you have to assume they'll be painting a pretty shiny picture of online poker.

Considering the two prodcuers represent two of the biggest poker training sites it'll be interesting to find out.
