Winners and Sore Losers at Bobby's Room in Las Vegas

Over his illustrious career, Doyle Brunson has won 10 WSOP bracelets, including back-to-back WSOP Main Events, earning him $6,131,775 since his first live cash back in 1972. However, the Godfather of Poker has always had a special fondness for cash games, and while at 83 years of age he no longer has the desire to compete on the demanding tournament circuit, Doyle does enjoy wiling away his time competing at the highest cash stake levels at Bobby’s Room, situated at the Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
The holiday season is no exception, and on Tuesday, 27th December Doyle Brunson was enjoying another nosebleed cash game session at the venue, when he felt compelled to take to twitter and report some of the action he saw taking place at the Bellagio.
Needless to say, the octogenarian poker pro must have seen just about everything that can happen during a game of poker, but even Doyle seemed impressed by the performance of one player that sat down at a $2,000-$4,000 mixed game. Apparently, the unnamed player subsequently span a three big bet stack into more than half a million dollars, and as Doyle tweeted:
“Saw a player that will not be named, run 12k into 550k in a 2-4k mix game last night.”
It appears some of that money could have been won from Doyle, as he followed up his tweet by stating:
“Was not me. I ran 400k into 250k:-(((((”
In the meantime, it seems that tensions were also running high in Bobby’s Room, especially between two players who had been on a 2 day poker session, with their tempers reaching boiling point. As Doyle tweeted:
“Also had some fireworks in bobby’s room. Two players that had been playing for 48 hours got tilted and threw 150k chips in cardroom floor.”
That does seem to have been the end of it, though, and after Lacey Jones jokingly wrote that she “heard it was a blood bath”, Brunson responded with:
“Could have been. Sicko Doyle really wanted to see fist fight, but alas…..”
