User Name Remember Me? Is this kind of strategy applicable to a small stakes game, jabbing at the pot with multiple low stakes callers will not get you a steal so this seems that half of it is blunted. The chances of actually getting dealt small suited connectors is still small so it seems odd to use these type of hands as a foundation for play. To follow his strategy would mean playing very few hands, I can't imagine that in real life Doyle plays as tight and is more LAG.

Doyle F. Brunson  born August 10 , is an iconic American poker player who has played professionally for over 50 years. He is also one of only four players to have won the Main Event at the World Series of Poker multiple times, which he did in and In January , Bluff Magazine voted Brunson the 1 most influential force in the world of poker. Brunson was born in Longworth, Fisher County, Texas , a town with a population of approximately , the eldest of three children.
Because of Longworth's small size, Brunson frequently ran long distances to other towns, and became a promising athlete. He was part of the All-State Texas basketball team, and practiced the one-mile run to keep in shape in the off-season. Although he was more interested in basketball than running, he entered the Texas Interscholastic Track Meet and won the one-mile event with a time of Despite receiving offers from many colleges, he attended Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas , because it was close to his home.
The Minneapolis Lakers were interested in Brunson, but a knee injury ended his playing days. He had taken a summer job and was unloading some sheetrock; when the ton of weight shifted, Brunson instinctively tried to stop it, but it landed on his leg, breaking it in two places.
He was in a cast for two years, and the injury ended his hopes of becoming a professional basketball player. He still occasionally requires a crutch to get around because of the injury. Brunson changed his focus from athletics to education and obtained a master's degree in administrative education. Brunson had begun playing poker before his injury, playing five card draw and finding it "easy". He played more often after being injured and his winnings paid for his expenses.
He obtained a bachelor's degree in and a master's the following year. After graduating, he took a job as a business machines salesman but, on his first day, he was invited to play in a seven-card stud game and earned over a month's salary in under three hours. He soon left the company and became a professional poker player. Eventually, they began traveling around Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana, playing in bigger games, and met fellow professionals Amarillo Slim and Sailor Roberts. The illegal games Brunson played in during this time were usually run by criminals who were often members of organized crime , so rules were not always enforced.
Brunson has admitted to having a gun pulled on him several times and that he was robbed and beaten. Poker was not a socially accepted career path during this time and, given the reputation of those running the games he was playing in, he had little legal recourse. Hamilton moved back to Fort Worth while the others teamed up and travelled around together, gambling on poker, golf and, in Doyle's words, "just about everything".
They decided to stop playing as partners yet remain friends. The book is subtitled "How I made one million dollars playing poker", by Doyle Brunson. He also plays in many of the biggest poker tournaments around the world.
He won his ninth gold bracelet in a mixed games event in , and in he finished 53rd in a field of 2, in the No Limit Texas hold 'em Championship event. Early in the morning on July 1 , , less than a week after Chan had won his 10th gold bracelet - setting a new record - Brunson tied the record at the WSOP.
Brunson's nickname , "Texas Dolly", came from a mistake by Jimmy Snyder. Snyder was supposed to announce Brunson as "Texas Doyle", but incorrectly pronounced the first name as Dolly. It stuck and many of Brunson's fellow top pros now simply refer to Brunson as "Dolly". Brunson has the honor of having two Texas hold'em hands named after him. One hand, a ten and a two of any suit, bears his name as he won the No Limit Hold 'Em event at the World Series of Poker two years in a row with them and , in both cases completing a full house.
In both and , he was an underdog in the final hand, requiring Brunson to come from behind both times. Brunson endorses the online poker room Doyles Room. Brunson met his future wife, Louise, in and married her in August Louise became pregnant, but later that year, a tumor was discovered in his neck. When it was operated on, the surgeons found that the cancer had spread and declared it incurable.
They felt that an operation would prolong his life enough for him to see the birth of the baby, so they went ahead with it. After the operation, no trace of the cancer could be found. In , their daughter Doyla was diagnosed with scoliosis , yet her spine straightened completely within three months.
Doyla died at 18 when she took too much potassium for a heart-valve condition. Over the following year, Brunson read Christian literature and converted to Christianity. His son, Todd , also plays poker professionally. Shortly thereafter, the Commission contends, a public relations firm Brunson hired, and a website he endorses, publicly announced the offer. The Commission asserts that publication of this offer, widely covered in the media, triggered a steep rise in WPT's stock price on record trading volume.
When pressed for details, Brunson and his lawyers immediately stopped responding to the WPT and the media. Instead, after delivering the offer, Brunson withdrew from the engagement. When the WPT publicly disclosed Brunson and his law firm's unresponsiveness, its stock price sharply declined, costing investors tens of millions of dollars in lost market value.
The offer eventually expired by its terms. The SEC is formally investigating whether Brunson's offer and its publication violated federal securities laws, including the anti-fraud provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of As part of its investigation, the SEC subpoenaed documents and testimony from Brunson's lawyers. However, Brunson, who has invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and declined to testify in the investigation, directed his lawyers to withhold certain documents and not to testify on critical aspects of the offer, under the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine.
The subpoena enforcement action seeks to set aside these privileges on various legal grounds, including the crime-fraud exception, and to compel Brunson's firm to provide the requested documents and testimony. The court has not yet set the Commission's action for hearing. Template:Cite book. Template:World Series of Poker Winners. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. Contents [ show ].
