And everyone thought he was going to leave this life a few months ago, and dedicate to rest, and only appearing in some bigger or private events… Who would say he would be playing at this rhythm at this time of his life? Great man, great poker player, the legend keeps giving cards at the tables!

Doyle will forever be one of the greats. I just hope I make it to a tournament he does play in & get a chance to sit across the felt from him, & show him what he's taught me.=)

I miss seeing him on High Stakes Poker! Doyle is well respected throughout the poker world and the people who don't know who he is should.

He loves the game and won't ever quit and although I'm far from his level of play I feel the same way.

Doyle always said he like live poker and it's not a fan of online poker so i think he always played so much live poker Smile

From what i remember he is a very good mtt player, i saw him losing many times on live tv cash games.

well what else for him to do? fishing, drinking and visiting the girls for some salami action...as well as he is enjoying himself i think this is a very normal thing- at this age you deserve some time for yourself- so nothing strange over here. i would go for bit less, 8-12 hours a day is too tiring for me, and probably too boring as well

Yeah he's probably not in great shape nowadays, so poker is probably the only thing he can do that will get his heart pumpin again ^^

There is a lot of research being done on ways to keep the brain from aging, I wonder if poker is not one way? I know when I am multitabling the decisions regarding the math, position, history with opponent and such need to be made instantaneously, so as the years go by I wonder if this is helping the grey matter any Blink I'll report back to you in 30 years. Smile

I like Doyle, hope he keeps going for a long long time. Thumbs Up Dollar

But I Think 8 hours or more time playing poker or any other game is too much. I like to play poker, but my jife is something more than to play poker. Family, friends, other hobby... That is only my opinion.

To play poker 8 to 12 hours per day, is like you are going to a job , cause this is the norm for a job 8-12 hours...so if you dont have a job u can play this time, just that is much harder then u believe to be focuse so much time...from my oppinion is to much, but hey, everyone can take decisions for himself...

At 78, fun , nope, an addiction.

He should be relaxing somewhere, I've seen him on TV lately, a picture of tiredness,
and just plain old.
