DOYLISM OF THE DAY: "If you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can always depend on the support of Paul."

It seems there are two or three charity poker tournaments every week. Most all of them are for worthy causes and we should support them. However, because there are so many, it is impossible to play in all of them. DoylesRoom (online casino games) almost always donates books, caps, shirts and different paraphernalia to the worthy charities that have poker tournaments. Even after you decline, those sponsors never give up. Last week, one of them called me saying Matt Damon said he would come if he could play at my table. I never thought for a minute Matt really said that, but I went anyway just to see. After I got there, not only was Matt not there, none of the A-list celebs were. Matt is probably too busy with Sarah Silverman :)

On the positive side, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino had two tournaments this past week announcing the opening of their card room. The room is ultra nice with the most comfortable chairs I have ever seen. I wish every card room manager in Vegas would drop by and see them and put the same chairs in their rooms. There was a big turnout for their 1st tourney with every seat taken and over 100 alternates waiting. First prize was a custom made Harley motorcycle that had never been ridden. Guess who won it? It was a Brunson, but not me or Todd.

My daughter Pam came through the 250 player field to win. Poor Todd lost another $1,000 to Pam on their last longer bet they make each time they both enter a tournament. With 19 players left, there were 3 Brunsons still in. Pam, Todd's wife Anjela, and me. We had to listen to that same old, "I'm the last Brunson standing", from Pam. She has outlasted both of us the past 7 or 8 tournaments we all played in. She also bets Hoyt Corkins, but Hoyt only bets $20. Good thing because she has beat him several in a row. Congratulations Pam, you must be playing really good poker!

It's almost time to head out to London for the WSOP Europe. It's a long way to go but I'm committed to go so I plan on playing in the HORSE, PLO and Main Event. I'm going to try to "really" focus on playing and give it my best shot.
