I got a chance to spend a night talking with Jason for a bit during the Bay101 Shooting Stars here in San Jose. Such a down to earth guy, a real breath of fresh air in the poker scene. This documentary really solidifies what a solid person he is and it was wonderful to get the background story on him. I am bummed that he didn't do as well as he wished in his tournaments but I have a feeling he'll be back. Cheers Jason.
