DOYLEISM OF THE DAY: “Income tax has made more liars than golf.”

The latest member of the Brunson 10 is Steve Gross. Steve is a well known and respected poker player who was the online player of the year last year. He is also leading the field in the same category for 2010. Steve is a class act and joins Zach Clark, Alex Kamberis, Amit Makhija, Dani Stern and Chris Moorman for six of the Brunson 10. Four more to go and it will be after this year’s WSOP before DoylesRoom.com signs anyone else. My grandson Jeff lives on a mountain in northern Montana. There are all kinds of wildlife there including bears, wolves, mountain lions and coyotes. Jeff’s dog Cash was caught outside by a pack of coyotes and killed. Cash was a big lab but he had no chance against a pack of wild animals. It’s hard to lose a pet for any reason but it’s really tough to lose one like that. I know if they got one of my pets, it would be open season on coyotes. Thank goodness for the NCAA Basketball playoffs. March Madness is one of my favorite times of the year. There are 64 teams playing 16 games on Thursday and 16 games on Friday. The winners play 8 games Saturday and 8 games Sunday, then they rest until the next Thursday. I have always had success taking all the underdogs the 1st round and this year was no exception as I won 8 bets. It seems the linemakers don’t know the correct favorites in some of the games. I’ve never seen so many young good players. I think Kentucky is going to win the tournament. My wife Louise gets a severe case of asthma caused by her allergies from pollen every spring. She has to leave and goes to Hawaii where she has a small apartment. Thelma, our housekeeper for the past 10 years, had never been to Hawaii so Louise took her for a week’s vacation. Do you suppose Thelma and Louise went for a little ‘ol ride? :) -DB

Coyotes are really adaptable creatures. Cockroaches and coyotes may be the ultimate survivalists.

Remember that coyote that we saw late at night on Century Blvd.in LA when you came to pick me up from LAX? Card room in Chula Vista was for sale. You and I and Chip were interested.

I saw a coyote..briefly ..hit it at 90 mph going over a mountain in tennessee one night. right under the beamer...i dragged it home under the car... that one didn't survive I can assure you. one less to hassle pets... They are fun to plink with just a varmint gun and a scope...

Heya Dolly,

I agree with your pick on Kentucky.

If you're interested in some talent to round out the Brunson 10 - don't hesitate to look North of the border...send me an email, we'll chat.

Cheers,

LK

Doyle I hope you are wrong. Kentucky and its coach does not represent what NCAA basketball is all about. They are probably the most hated team since your beloved 90-91 UNLV RUNNIN REBS

Coyotes are no good. When I was growing up we would just shot them, sorry about the pet Dolly, that must of hurt that young man.

I logged on to Doyles room the other week just to take a look, it was only 10 eastern time and only a little over 5000 players were logged in and i figure at least 80% of those was at the play money tables, why would anybody want to play here???

Also it's that same software that some of the sportsbooks use that has only like 7 or 8 goofy avatars to choose from, good grief, 2 or 3 hours playing thier and surely you would want to blow your head off!!!! I thought fooltilt sucked with those cartoon avatars but Doyles room has figured out how to be even more annoying!!! And those gold cards? Jesus!

Doyle, please talk to your long time friend Daniel N and convince him to stop the insanity. He has really gone off the deep end and is just plain bad for poker lately. His game on HSP has become so very weak and he is losing his fan base rapidly. Since, you are the GOD of the game maybe he'll listen to you. After all, he was a contributor to your book and as such must be in your inner circle. We loved him but he needs to step away from the game and refocus his mind or he will surely go broke. Talk to him will you please????
