On this special edition of the PokerNews Podcast, Jesse Fullen has a one-on-one chat with Above the Felt founder Tom Wheaton, who directed and produced the upcoming Dreamers: A New-Age Poker Documentary.
The new poker documentary premieres on YouTube on Friday, April 14 at 7 p.m. EST and will feature interviews with longtime pros like Darren Elias and Matt Berkey, content creators like Ethan “Rampage” Yau and Jaman Burton and industry names including Jamie Kerstetter, Jeff Platt and Maria Konnikova.
The documentary, an Above the Felt production that features cinematography by Karl Angelo and editing by Alec Rome of the PokerNews World Series of Poker (WSOP) Photo Team, follows these players and others as they competed in the 2022 World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship at the Wynn in Las Vegas.
