If you’ve got an hour and a half to burn and you love poker, then you’ll definitely want to check out “Nosebleed.” This documentary centers on two of the best online poker players of all time, Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau and Sebastien “Seb86” Sabic.
The language is in French, but there are English subtitles for the large majority who will need them. And I highly encourage you to watch Nosebleed since it takes an interesting behind-the-scenes look at two elite poker players.
As Luneau explains, the two met in Las Vegas and again in Thailand – when Alex finally decided to get to know Sabic better. What spawned was a partnership where Alexonmoon learned Deuce to Seven and other mixed games from Seb86, while the latter learned NLHE and PLO from Luneau.
The partnership has definitely worked out, with both players making well over a million(s) dollars over the past few years. It’s impossible to say exactly how much because they’ve opted out of HighStakesDB’s tracking system – but it is definitely a lot!
As for the documentary, you can check it out below, and here’s the beginning synopsis if you’re hesitant about clicking play:
Alexandre Luneau and Sebastien Sabic have been playing the biggest online cash games since 2009. They’re young, French, up millions of dollars, and internationally recognized as truly elite players in every Poker variant from NLHE, to 2-7 Lowball and mixed games.
But, this past summer they tried to achieve a different dream: to win a bracelet at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. We followed them for 7 weeks of tournaments, hope, frustration and above all, passion.
