The 2003 World Series of Poker should not have been a success. Its host casino teetered on the edge of bankruptcy, internet qualifiers knocked out the most marketable stars, and the production company tasked with showing the event on TV knew nothing about the game. "All In" explores how the 2003 tournament overcame the odds to spark a poker boom and forever change poker's place in America.
