    74 years old and sharper than ever, Doyle shows them how

    Online and land poker legend Doyle 'Texas Dolly' Brunson (74) showed younger aces his considerable talent over the weekend playing against top poker pros in the mixed games at Bobby's Room at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

    Named after Bobby Baldwin, CEO of Mirage Resorts and a world champion poker player himself, the room has seen some mighty poker clashes and Brunson's big win was no exception.

    Discussing his $2 million profit over the weekend on his Internet blog, Brunson wrote that he had decided to hit the cash games instead of the World Poker Tour $25 000 Championship event, as it turned out a wise move in view of his subsequent success. As he pointed out, he would have needed to actually win the tournament to equal the profits from his cash game wins over the same period.

    During his foray into the cash games, Texas Dolly successfully clashed with the formidable international poker star Phil Ivey in an amusing episode he describes as Doyle Sez, which involved the poker veteran choosing the game to be played. Brunson went for six card Razz and beat his widely experienced opponent, commenting "I’ve got some more games for him if he wants to continue!

    Lol, What a player.
  3. doyle is a regular in that game , not surprised at all by his results. it was a great idea taking phil out of his comfort zone by introducing a new game. i'm sure phil is a great razz player but introducing the 6th card changes the game up to the experienced player. go doyle.

    6 card razz--I can imagine that'd throw people off.
