“When people say things are not as good as they used to be, this usually can be translated as things were much better as I remember them when I was young and full of enthusiasm.”
A very nice tribute to one of the greatest men who ever played the game.
Agreed. Sad news that although you knew would come one day, you somehow thought it would never happen.
I was at the WSOP in Vegas once and met the man. I have hardly ever met someone more gracious. He was a Grandseigneur of poker.
Time waits for no man, they say. I’m sure we all feel the loss.
Let’s all play 10-2 next time we sit at a poker table. Thank you, Doyle.
I can’t even say how much this has pained me for the last couple of days. Doyle is irreplaceable.
Doyle was for poker what Lemmy was for metal – the last rock star.
The first time I saw Doyle was on Poker after Dark. At first I wondered what the old guy was doing there, but boy did he hold his own.
Unforgettable: Doyle vs Dwan. A clash of generations.
I’m sure it’s raining in Las Vegas.
Good bye Doyle. Moneymaker was the reason I started playing, but you were the reason I kept it up.
It’s strange how poker is called a young man’s game, but the most popular player was an octogenarian. Thanks for everything you’ve done. Doyle.
I’m going to change my profile pick to Doyle.
Still hard to imagine we won’t have anymore Poker after Dark episodes with Doyle.
Texas Dolly, you will be missed.
Doyle Brunson was to poker what Al Bundy was to Polk High.
