Doyle Brunson STEAMROLLING the table 4 hands in a row and having great fun! What a poker legend. The #1tripz1 (aka 1trips, 1trips 1) rare #poker hands playli. Doyle Brunson (ed.), Super/System 2 (Cardoza, 2005) The cover of Super/System 2 touts it as the most anticipated book in poker history. Given that the original is the most influential book in poker history, I can understand that, but you have to figure that such a thing is kind of setting the reader up for a letdown. In reading poker tells, one of the most important things to do is watch your opponents look at the final river card. If it helps them, they’re very likely to only look for a short time. Then they’ll quickly place the card facedown and try to look uninterested, perhaps staring away from the approaching betting action.
Doyle Brunson’s Poker Strategy Tips
Doyle Brunson, poker legend and fearsome opponent in all forms of the game has a reputation built on aggression – he wins pot after pot because his opponents know he is happy to get all his chips in without so much as a draw! It may then come as a surprise to some that, for tournaments, Doyle Brunson’s poker strategy advice is to play very tight, at least in the beginning levels. For the first couple of blind levels Doyle is happy to sit back and be content with the pots that the cards allow him to win.
This type of survivalist poker tournament strategy allows professional players to survive the ‘minefield’ of amateur players found at the start of tournaments. The strategy involves raising with medium strength cards (mid-pairs / unsuited high cards etc) but never calling with them. Taking small stabs at pots, but backing off when resistance is encountered.
When you are entering mid-stage of the poker tournament, Doyle’s strategy involves careful assessment of many situational factors. These include the tendencies of opponents, but more importantly their stack sizes. Small and Large stacks are far more likely to call your big bets (though for different reasons) so caution should be exercised with them.
Aggressive and positive poker, which is Doyle Brunson’s trademark, kicks in later in the middle stages. This takes the form of gradually increasing aggression levels in order to put pressure on your opponents who will be afraid of busting out. According to Brunson, the key tournament strategy here is to keep accumulating chips – staying ahead of the blinds and antes will enable you to choose when to bet big rather than be forced to play without solid values.
Doyle’s poker tournament strategy for the final table involves careful evaluation of your opponents and their chip stacks. While Brunson advises always playing to win, there are times when a number of short stacked opponents mean that tight play would guarantee you one of the higher playing places. If your goal is to win and you are second in chips, Doyle advises that you target the chip leader, play aggressively and try to overtake him.
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 Sunday night to win Super Bowl LIV and one of poker’s most legendary players wagered a hefty sum on the wrong side.
10-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Doyle Brunson tweeted before the game started that he had bet $175,000 on the 49ers to win.
Lines varied slightly depending on location and when the bet was placed, but just before kickoff, the 49ers were 1-point dogs and +100 on the money-line. Brunson didn’t clarify whether he took the points or the money-line, but both wound up losing.
Before disclosing the amount that he bet, the 86-year-old professional poker player said that he has bet on every Super Bowl that was ever played. His smallest bet was $20,000 and his largest bet was $200,000.
I've bet every Super Bowl ever played. My smallest bet was 20k. My biggest bet was 200k. I usually bet the underdog, including this year. Go 49er's.

I keep pressing my bet on 49er's. Im up to 175k…I should bet 26k more where it would be my biggest Super Bowl play ever. Please no more calls.

Last night’s game was the 52nd Super Bowl in league history, meaning that in his lifetime, Brunson wagered somewhere between $1.04 million and $10.4 million on the big game. In response to a question from a follower, Brunson said that he bet $200,000 on the 1985 Chicago Bears to win the Super Bowl. Mike Ditka’s Bears beat the New England Patriots 46-10.
The American Gaming Association estimated that 26 million Americans would wager a combined $6.8 billion on the game. The poker world seems to have contributed their fair share to those pre-game estimates.
Aside from Brunson’s loss, former high-stakes poker pro Jason Mo tweeted that he took sizable losses of his own. Mo, who finished runner-up in the 2014 WSOP $25,000 no-limit hold’em mixed max and the 2012 WSOP $10,000 heads-up no-limit hold’em championship, claimed he lost $50,000 in prop bets before the kickoff.

Later in the night, Mo and gamblers around the country took a bad beat on one of the most commonly-bet props of the game. With less than a minute left and the game sealed, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Maholmes had already amassed 44 rushing yards. The line for the over/under was anywhere between 27.5 and 36.5 depending on when the bet was placed. Rarest 50p.

Maholmes took a knee on three straight plays, including one where he ran backward nearly a dozen yards before kneeling down to let more time run off the clock. Those three plays trimmed 15 yards off Maholmes’ rushing total and he finished the game with 29 yards, which cost Mo an undisclosed amount.
Just realize I lost mahomes over rushing despite covering by 10 yards before the kneel downs

ESPN Chalk is reporting that the last-second change to his statistics gave the sportsbooks a big win. Online sportsbook PointsBet said that it accepted twice as much money on the over and William Hill claimed 75 percent of the bets it accepted were on the over.
“That was close to a six-figure swing [in favor of the house],” Jeff Davis, director of trading for Caesars Sportsbook told ESPN.
