DOYLISM OF THE DAY: “The only person you are with your entire life is yourself. Be alive while you are alive!”

I can’t believe the interest the Brunson 10 is getting. For the ones who aren’t familiar with this, DoylesRoom is in the process of selecting 10 of the most qualified online poker players to sign up and represent us. The requirements are pretty simple. Not only do the members of the 10 have to be good players, they have to be well mannered and personable. I’m not ready to pass the torch quite yet, but these guys will be the future of DoylesRoom. We have signed three of the 10 already: Amit Makhija, Alec Torelli and Zach Clark. Two more will be signed this month and two more in October. They need three remaining players to finish the 10. If any of you young internet players are interested, join the already long list of prospects at DoylesRoom. Contact will@dbpn.com. These players don’t want to be just another pro at the bigger sites. With DoylesRoom, they will get better exposure. I can’t wait to meet all of them.

The Brunson house has four new pets. A stray cat had kittens up on our rock waterfall and they have made their home in the bushes and trees surrounding the pool. In spite of ourselves, Louise and I are growing attached to them and put food up on the rocks. We can’t make house pets out of them because Casper, my toy poodle, has a fit everytime he sees them and chases them off. It’s too bad, the cats are cute and we love animals.

I’ve been working on my autobiography for the last week. We started this book five years ago, then stopped. At my family’s urging, we finished it and it will be in the stores the first week of November. I still have my reservations about putting this out.

This will be my last blog for 3-4 weeks. I’m going to Budapest for an affiliate convention then to Nottingham, then to Birmingham, then London. I guess I’ll play the WSOP Europe while I’m there plus the Caesar’s Cup and English Open. I come back to Vegas in early Oct. and go to Montana for Todd’s tournament. Then in the middle of Oct., I go to Abilene, Texas where my University is inducting me into their athletic Hall of Fame. It’s about time, after snubbing me for 40 years because I chose to be a gambler. I guess times do change. Then, in early November I go to Orlando for the High Stakes Entertainment poker-golf school. You should go if possible. Check it out on www.pokergolfacademy.com.

Here I am, three-quarters of a century old and traveling the world like some kid. I’ve always suspected I might be a little crazy and this confirms it. When I get back from Orlando, the farthest I’m going is the city limits of Las Vegas. Uh-oh, maybe Montana. :)

"If any of you young internet players are interested..." C'mon, Dolly. What about older internet players?

Just kidding -- good luck with this. Is Patrik's fiancee sponsored yet?

Quit defending Doyle, the man is a crook, plain and simple. He should be called the grandaddy of scams, no different than the common thief. TV made him look better to the naive, but we know better. Look where he started and who he hung with. His next blog should be (guity by association and confirmed by actions). Either way time is on the good guys side.

Also, Doyle and Russ Hamilton probably hooked up and is stealing you guys money. Both live in Vegas, Main event champs, play golf, same shit. Looks like a lot of similarities to me. CROOKS

zdrt123: And where is your evidence of these libelous accusations? And who did he "hang with" that you have any personal knowledge of?

And "guilt by association"? What planet do you live on?

Your writings suggest to me that you are a losing player, if one at all.

I have a lot of personal knowledge of Doyles past and present, considering I live in Vegas. As far as me being a winning or losing player, well I take more than I give. And who the hell do you think you are, you are defending a worthless piece of shit. Do you even know Doyle or have you even have met him. Hell I'm looking at Doyle right now. Scary world, be careful

zdr123: You have had your posts removed before by the Administrator. You have also been warned about ad hominem attacks. Yet you continue after swearing to the Administrator that you would not do so again.

That speaks volumes about your credibility, or lack thereof.

If you are "looking at Doyle right now". Tell us where you are looking at him from.

You are hopelessly obtuse if you haven't figured out by now that I am a friend of Doyle who has known him for a very long time.

For one I never sweared that I would not say things about Doyle or anyone else Slim. What I did say is that I would not say things that may be or seem to be slanderous. Then I guess you and I know each other, either way, one things for sure, you and him are bottom of the barrel. You guys are crooked gamblers, liars, cheats. I'll do ya a favor and never post again, because I've said what I have to say and its pointless. Also, you guys are scum and beneath me. I will say this, they can cancel my account whatever, IF DOYLE GOT CAUGHT FOR THE THINGS HE'S DONE, HE WOULD BE IN PRISON FOR LIFE.

zdrt123: Here's your quote to the Administrator:

"I am sincerely sorry for the very rude and indecent posts that were posted here. I have no excuse in my actions, and I'm sorry for that. I promise that I'll never do anything like this again."

If u do know Doyle and are playing or used to play live games in Vegas. Then no doubt we have met and most likely have played together. I'm sure I didn't like you, bad Texans are the worst and lowest kinda man their is. no reason to reply, its over for me posting here. It kinda makes feel bad inside, even though the things I say or have said are 100 percent true. My bitchin ain't gonna change a thing. For that I am sorry. Good bye

zdr123: Thanks for providing us with a little bit of comedic relief. We have "...most likely have played together." you say. Yeah, right!!! You playing in high stakes games with apex predators? Now that's comedy.

To clarify, maddscientist's comments were removed for terms of service violations. His comments were abusive to other users, used profanity, and openly threatened other users with phrases like "I WILL END YOU." Any comments that he had written that did not violate the terms of service were allowed to remain (as the one above). He was warned, and he continued to post violating comments and e-mail threats to Card Player employees. His account was subsequently deleted, as he was told that it would be with continued violation.
