"Records are made to be broken." These were Poker icon Doyle Brunson's first words after winning his tenth WSOP gold bracelet.
June 29, 2005, Doyle Brunson won his tenth World Series of Poker championship. Texas Dolly's win came in the $5,000 buy-in No Limit Hold'em event and he now ties Johnny Chan for the most won World Series of Poker championships.
Doyle Brunson, commonly known as "Texas Dolly", is the best and most famous poker player of all time. The eccentric "poker icon" was born 08/10/33 in Longworth, Texas during the Great Depression. Texas Dolly started off his poker playing career in college and discovered early on that he could make far more money playing poker than he could in a regular job.
Doyl Brunson won The World Series of Poker's main championship event back-to-back in 1976 and 1977. Believe it or not, but both years the "poker icon" won the final hand with a full house , tens full of deuces, holding a ten and a two in his hand .
Texas Dolly is the author of one of the most revered poker books ever written. "Super/System" by Doyle Brunson was first published in the late seventies and is a timeless classic that thoroughly covers the subject of most poker games.
