Doyle Brunson started his wagering profession by taking part in illegal games located in Exchange Street, Texas as well as a friend, Dwayne Hamilton. At a later date the 2 of them visited by means of Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma participating in bigger games and getting together with other expert bettors like Sailor Roberts and Amarillo Slim. Dwayne Hamilton left the team after some time and left the other 3 who for the next 6 years gambled on pretty much everything. Then they made a trip to Vegas and lost everything. That broke up the partnership though the 3 remain pals even today. Doyle Brunson lives in Sin City.

Besides his success at the game itself, Doyle Brunson’s publication Super/System, was also really profitable and is viewed by a lot of as 1 of the best publications on the casino game of poker. The publication was very first published in the late seventies and for the very first time the common person was able to take a look at the casino game the way a expert gambler would. A sequel, Super/System 2 was printed in 2004. Doyle Brunson is not the only writer to these books but it includes inputs from several other professional players like Mike Caro, Bobby Baldwin, David Sklansky, Joey Hawthorne, along with Chip Reese. Besides these two books, Brunson has also penned Poker Wisdom of a Champion, a publication that was formerly titled According to Doyle.

His winnings continued into 2005 when he won his tenth World Series of Poker bracelet. In doing so he tied the score with Johnny Chan who had also won the same series for the 10th time.
