(Las Vegas, NV, December 4, 2017) — Poker Central® partnered with Greencard Pictures to produce the documentary-style series “Stories from the Felt.” The six-episode series gives viewers a look behind some of the greatest untold stories of the game. “Stories from the Felt” will stream exclusively on PokerGO starting today, December 4.
“Stories from the Felt” features unbelievable poker stories straight from the source with exclusive interviews with the game’s biggest personalities, including Nick Schulman, Jennifer Harmon, and Bill Perkins. In addition to the documentary-style storytelling, the interviews will include a mix of rapid fire questions digging deep into unchartered territory with poker’s most prominent figures.
“We’ve brought together some of the most remarkable, little-known poker stories and interviewed the characters behind them to bring poker’s lore to life,” said Joe Kakaty, president of Poker Central. “The captivating tales of ‘Stories from the Felt’ offer our subscribers a glimpse into poker only few have ever seen.”
Each episode in the series features different stories from poker past and present and will be released on the following dates:
- December 4 – “The Legend of Bobby’s Room”
Behind-the-scenes access to the exclusive fraternity known as “Bobby’s Room”
- December 5 – “The Big Reveal”

- December 6 – “The Bike Bet”
The against-all-odds bicycle prop bet between Brian Rast and Dan Bilzerian

Greg Merson’s battle to overcome drug addiction to win the WSOP Main Event
- December 8 – “The Mayfair Club”
A deep dive into the Mayfair Club, the real-life inspiration behind “Rounders”
- December 8 – “Wild Cards”
A mixed bag of poker related questions answered by players and people on and off the felt
“My goal with ‘Stories from the Felt’ was to find fresh angles on old stories, unearth lesser known stories that deserve to be told, and feature the characters as much as the events themselves,” said Duncan Skiles, director of “Stories from the Felt.” “I’m grateful to the poker community for welcoming our team, and I look forward to sharing these episodes on PokerGO.”
