Doyle Brunson Is Coming to London!

Poker legend “Texas Dolly” crosses the pond to launch his new-look poker site

Legendary Vegas poker pro Doyle Brunson will be in London in September to introduce the UK and Europe to his online poker room, DoylesRoom.com.

His visit will also coincide with the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Europe, the first event of its kind, which is taking place in London and kicks off on September 6th.

Brunson, nicknamed ‘Texas Dolly’, is one of the biggest names in the poker world. His list of achievements is endless: he was the first player to earn $1 million in tournaments and has picked up an amazing 10 WSOP bracelets throughout a glittering career.

Doyle Brunson wrote his name into the poker history books when he won consecutive WSOP Main Event bracelets in 1976 and 1977 and remains one of only four men to do so. Given his track record it is little wonder BLUFF magazine last year named him the ‘Most Influential Force in the World of Poker’.

He has taught millions how to play the game with his book Super System, published in 1978, and an updated version, Super System 2, released in 2004. His latest book, My 50 Most Memorable Hands, reveals 50 of the greatest poker hands he’s ever played.

Doyle’s move into online was a natural progression and has proved a great success. The DoylesRoom.com website offers tournaments, great cash games, and sit ‘n’ gos as well as advice from Mike Caro, founder of the first permanent poker school. The site boasts the highest and lowest limit tables on the web and attracts celebrity players including his son Todd Brunson.

“I've watched poker evolve for over 50 years now and I continue to play in some of the biggest games in the world," said Brunson. "If you want to go heads up against me, look out for my screen name TEX_DOLLY.”

There’s no better time to log on to DoylesRoom.com as the site is offering a number of exclusive weekly Summer Freerolls. The tournaments culminate in a $25,000 “Finale Freeroll” where the winner will get not only their share of the prize pool but the opportunity to play heads-up against Brunson for an additional $25,000 prize.
