Doyle Brunson faces Guy Laliberte of Cirque de Solei in a monster pot for 820K - Real Money
Doyle Brunson was born in Longworth Texas August 10 1933. He has played Poker Professionally for more than a half century. In High School and College he was a promising Basketball Player and very competitive in nature. During his college years an injury that happened on a job moving Sheetrock when more than a ton of it crushed his leg. That injury ended his basketball career but gave him more time to focus on his education. After earning his masters degree in administrative education he took a job selling business machines but on his first day he was invited to play in a 7 card stud game. In that game he won more than a months salary - he soon quit to play poker as a professional.
Doyle started playing in illegal street games in Fort Worth Texas but soon joined a group of professional poker players including Dwayne Hamilton, Sailor Roberts and Amarillo Slim making the rounds in Texas, "The Rounder's". Some of these games were against Doctors and Lawyers but many were more on the shady side influenced by the mafia and other organized crime groups. So a shotgun barrel in your face, a real beating and getting robbed gave Doyle some down-home education that would toughen nerves and sharpen senses. There was no crying for mommy here - as these games were flat out illegal - he had to run from the cops, criminals and highjackers too They all wanted a piece of Texas Doyle. Doyle was being announced one night as Texas Doyle, when the announcer - Jimmy Snyder, by mistake announced "Texas Dolly" - The Name Stuck.
After six years of fleecing Texas, Doyle and some friends with a six figure bankroll went to take on Vegas, well they lost - all of it. That Didn't stop Doyle Brunson though, and neither did cancer, at one point he was only given three months to live. That was more than 40 years ago. So Doyle moved to Las Vegas. In 1976 Doyle competed in the biggest Texas No Limit Hold em Tournament in the World at the World Series of Poker. He came from behind to win, and with a ten duce - He made a Full House. In 1977 he did it again winning the WSOP with a 10-2 making a full house again - This made Doyle Brunson the first back to back winner in history - a legend is made.
