Costa Rica Here I Come

by Doyle Brunson |  Published: Jan 07, '08


After watching all the football games the past week my head is spinning. I really enjoy the bowl games and the pro playoffs. Fortunately, I made some good selections and won my two biggest bets on Oregon and Kansas. I lost a tough game betting on Wisconsin, but as long as I am ahead overall, I'm happy!

I'm off to Costa Rica for a few days to discuss the exciting things that are going to happen at DoylesRoom in 2008. I'm particularly anxious to talk about a new promotion - Beat The Brunsons! If you win a designated tournament you play my daughter-in-law, Anjela Brunson. If you beat her you play my daughter, Pamela. Then, if you beat HER you play my son, Todd, and then me. It sounds like fun and there will be a handsome payday for each Brunson you beat!

We moved the 'Big Game' down to the Venetian Cardroom this weekend. Not that we had a problem with the Bellagio, but just to have a change in scenery. The Venetian is a beautiful place and they treat us very well so they may get some of our business. I really liked it because I had a nice win there.

I just installed two high definition television sets in my office. I have to admit the picture is superior to my old Sony TV that I have had for the past fourteen years. When I find something I like, I stick with it. I plan on trading automobiles every two years when I buy them, but I wind up keeping them for four or five years. Today's cars are so good nothing goes wrong, so why trade them? I'm looking for a new Escalade because my 2004 has 100,000 miles on it and yet I still hate to give it up.

I may do some deep sea fishing while I'm in Costa Rica. I'll tell you about it in my next blog. -DB
