10 thoughts on “Poker legend Doyle Brunson dies at 89

  1. Unbelievable! What a fantastic gentleman. Was always one of my favorites to watch play poker. A modicum of embodiment of his persona would go a long way for some of the arrogant poker players who dominate the scene. May he rest in peace.

  2. Rest in Peace Legend.. May the Poker Gods accept you in the kingdom of heaven!

  3. The NBA had Jordan.
    The NFL had Brady.
    The NHL had Gretzky.
    We in the poker world had Doyle.

    For those who aren’t as familiar with the poker world, that’s how Doyle is thought of. And despite all his accolades and success, he was a true southern gentleman who always seemed appreciative of fans and people who wanted to learn the game.

    RIP to an absolute legend – there will never be another.

  4. Condolences to his family, but I find the world of betting and card games rather unsavoury.

  5. Nevermind being the greatest poker player . Doyle was just a good person. Was on the same table with him playing in the old Oceanside Poker room back in the 80's (Doyle was there to help promote the room, the stakes were far to low for Doyle) . We were both hungry but my wife made me a great Turkey bacon swich. I offered him a half and Doyle took it !! He was so grateful was trying to give me a $20 under the table but I didnt take it. He then introduced me to his young son Todd (I think was about 23) and his daughter Pam—nice people. He even remembered me 5 years later playing in a big LA poker tournament. I'm sure there are stories like mine that will be told. RIP Texas Dolly.
