At big money poker tournaments, what you see on TV is just the surface of things. There's a game going on behind the game. We talk to a professional poker player who lost on the first day of a major tournament--then went on to get the biggest payout of his life.

Music: Ariel Rechtshaid, Daniel Leonardo Nigro, Marc Ferrari, and Sean Patrick Fitzgerald's "Turn The Lights On." Find us: Twitter/ Facebook.
