Michael Phelps recently went on a trip to Las Vegas with some of his friends to stay at a huge suite at the Palms Hotel & Casino. During his stay he contacted Doyle Brunson and asked to meet up with the poker legend. They met up at the Palms and according to Doyle the swimmer was very enthusiastic and eager to learn more about poker, he asked a lot of questions and showed a huge interest in poker. Rumour has it that Phelps said that the only things that interest him are to eat, swim and to play poker.


Phelps made a very good impression on Doyle and he said that he seems to be a very humble person. They spent a full day together and at the end of the day he got a couple of signed copies of Super System 1 and 2 that were signed by Doyle.
Earlier this year Phelps announced that he would love to play in the WSOP and after the meeting with Doyle a lot of people think that he might become a sponsored player at DoylesRoom.

They should make a "dualtone". One competition in swimming, the other one in poker. Winner gets the other ones Gold Olympic Medal or Bracelet! They have lots of them, so shouldnt be so sad to give one to another champ Worship Worship Worship Worship Worship

If Phelps starts collecting bracelets in the way he had collected his gold medals, Phil Hellmuth must be afraid that he will lose his record of holding most bracelets very soon.
