Doyle Brunson Buoyed By The Success Of His 'Brunson 10' At 2010 WSOPJuly 14, 2010 9:39 am
Doyle Brunson may not have had the best WSOP of his career, having failed to cash in at any of the eight tournaments he had entered, but that’s why the 76 year old poker legend has a posse of young stars to help fly the flag for the grand old man of poker.
Doyle complained about feeling discomfort throughout the 2010 WSOP due to dental related problems, all of which made for a WSOP he’d prefer to forget. As Doyle explained:
“Those gum treatments were supposed to be over in 4-5 months, but this has taken already eight months. I’ve got seven implants in my mouth which feels like getting on a carousel and not being able to get off.”
However, DoylesRoom.com’s young sponsored pros have so far put up a strong performance at the prestigious competition, with one of their rank still in with a shot at the Main Event.
Zachary Clark went into Day 4 of the tournament with 114k in chips and by the end of play had grown his stack to 278k and booked himself a place through to Day 5. Interestingly, he had some comments to make on Twitter about one particular player at the table and said:
“Galfond absolutely raped my table ALLLL DAY LONG. The way he handles himself at table is just as impressive as his play.”
Clark also had a 27th place money finish at the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event for $20,653.
Amit Makhija manged to make it just past the bubble at the Main Event, before being eliminated in 740th for $19,263. He expressed his disappointment about his WSOP run coming to end by saying:
“First time I was all in in 4 days really terrible feeling…JJ loses to Ac2c first Hand after the money I’m sososo disapointed really wanted to make a run. That was for 420k sigh. Disapointing series.”
Amit Makhija had also cashed in in 5th spot at the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em event for $179,866, and had a money finish at the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em Championship for $27,282.
Dani Stern managed a 5th place finish at the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em Championship event for $161,934, while Chris Moorman cashed in three events for a total pay-out of $53,643.
Bringing up the rear of the Team Brunson assault on WSOP 2010, was Alex Kamberis, who didn’t have the best WSOP having cashed in just the $500 No Limit Hold’em event for $1,240 and Steve Gross who managed two cashes worth $6,893.
The 2010 WSOP competition has also help locate and add a 7th player to the Brunson 10, with the $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em Six Handed Winner Dan Kelly now a fully fledged member of the elite crew. In addition to his WSOP bracelet and $1,315,518 first place pay-out, Kelly cashed in at a further three events for $23,091.
At least there’s plenty there in the results for Doyle to now smile about with his new teeth.
