durrrr and other pros shave their heads in soldiery for Thuy Doan

In the month of September, Thuy Doan went public with a very sad message in her blog - she had been diagnosis with cancer. Since Thuy Doan was diagnosed with cancer, she has been a break from the poker scene, but still she has continued writing in her blog about her fight against the cancer.

Now, a few months later, 16 of the world's best poker players (Doyle Brunson, Eli Elezra, Barry Greenstein, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Bertrand "ElkY", and Grospellier - just to mention a few) shaved their heads in soldiery for her. This really shows that even after all the success these players have had, they still have huge hearts and care for other people.

Never heard of thuy doan before ... the pros just want some media attention because it was a long time someone heard of them.

does anyone edit these news stories?

"Bertrand "ElkY", and Grospellier"


Not sure what shaving their heads is gonna do, maybe make her feel comfortable around them? doubt it.

very nice idea and good to see that poker comunity still cares about their members even at very high level

Very smart PR-move from the high stakers. Smile Maybe some of them actually do care though. Nice to see then.

I like to think this is not just a PR move from the players, but rather a really kind act for one of their own. I hope they are not as cynical as they seem sometimes and prove me wrong
 watoba16/12/2009 16:29:52 GMT
thats a very good idea probs for the pro
 pziko198616/12/2009 16:57:24 GMT
Let's assume that it has nothing to do with PR, but all with having heart.
Don't even think that Durrrr needs any media attention, he is in the picture more than enough. So I give him (and the others) my respect.

Indeed a nice attention since giving money to Thuy won't do anything (she must have enough)... but well, will this change anything? Maybe they should have found something better.. i dont know what, but something better
 BhStaljin16/12/2009 18:26:57 GMT
