Texas Dolly Goes for #11

The final table of the $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha World Championship began at 2:30 today. Doyle Brunson, arguably THE greatest player in the history of poker, and the true father of the modern poker boom, starts the day fifth in chips, looking for his 11th World Series of Poker Braclet, which will tie him with Phil Hellmuth for the most all-time.

Doyle is the author of Super-System and Super-System II, the former of which was featured in Rounders as one of the stashes of cash for Matt Damon. Needless to say, Doyle is among the top of my favorite poker players. I love watching him play more than anyone else, because of how amazingly and creatively he plays. There is a reason he was able to win TWO world championships with a 10-2 off-suit, the hand which is known as the Doyle Brunson.

Good Luck Dolly!
