The Brunson 10's Newest Recruit Is Steve 'gboro780' Gross

DoylesRoom’s have now found 6 of the 10 young poker pros that are being sought to follow in the footsteps of poker legend Doyle Brunson, after it was announced that Steve ‘gboro780’ Gross has become the team’s latest member.
Following the announcement of his signing, Doyle Brunson commented: “Steve’s record speaks for itself. Player of the year in 2009, on his way to another one this year, the kid is unbelievable.”
Steve ‘gboro780’ Gross (24) has certainly shown he has a prodigious talent for the game having earned $1,216,413 playing online poker in 2009 and bringing his life time online tournament earning to nearly $3 million.
Steve Gross’s achievements have been well acknowledged by the poker community and after finishing runner-up to Alex “AJKHoosier1” Kamberis in the 2008 Card Player’s Online Player of the Year race (OPOY), he succeeded in heading the OPOY leader board in 2009 to receive the title.
Gross managed to secure the 2009 OPOY honours by winning 21 tournaments throughout the year, including a 2nd place finish at a $500 buy-in event on Full Tilt for $126,506, 1st place at a $300 buy-in FTOPS event for $275,000, and a 2nd place finish at a $3,000 Mixed Hold’em event at PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) for $128,000. Gross is currently leading the OPOY race once more in 2010. 
Steve ‘gboro780’ Gross first started out on his poker journey after losing $50 a few times playing $5 sit and go tournaments at Party Poker. He then discovered multi-table tournaments and took to them right from the start, consistently racking up wins and money finishes since his first cash on PokerStars in January 2005.  As Steve explains:
“Playing tournaments really wears on you. The best players cash in 15-20% of their tournaments, so you have to be able to accept failure.”
Steve ‘gboro780’ Gross now takes his place amongst the other stupendously talented members of the Brunson 10, which include  Alex “AJKHoosier1” Kamberis, Zachary “Crazy Zachary” Clark, Amit “amak316” Makhija, Chris “Moorman1” Moorman, and Dani “ansky” Stern.
