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!

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

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 like Doyle, hope he keeps going for a long long time.

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...
