Player Profile - Doyle Brunson

Doyle Brunson is one of the most well-known professional poker players from the United States. He has been playing poker professionally for over 50 years and during that time won two Main Event Championships from the World Series of Poker and has also been inducted into the Hall of Fame for Poker. 

Throughout his career, Brunson has won ten bracelets in the World Series of Poker and was the first poker player to win over one million dollars from poker tournaments. Brunson is one of just four players to have won the Main Event tournament at the WSOP more than one time. He is also the first of five players to have won both the World Poker Tour titles along with a WSOP feature event. Many consider Doyle Brunson to be one of the most influential forces in the world of poker. 

Doyle’s poker career began years ago in Fort Worth, Texas where he would play illegal games with his friend Dwayne Hamilton. The two started travelling around Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma, plying in games that were bigger and meeting other professionals along the way. 

Eventually, Doyle chose Vegas as his home and has played regularly in the WSOP since it started in 1970. He has played in the main event almost every year since the start as well as many of the other bracelet tournament events. 

In addition to playing poker Brunson has also written a book about poker called Super System. This book is considered to be the Holy Grail when it comes to books about poker with most people considering it to be the absolute authority on the game. He self-published the book in 1978 and it is felt that this book transformed the game by giving the average player insight into how professional poker players think.
