durrrr and other pros shave their heads in soldiery for Thuy Doan
Barry Greenstein, Bertrand ElkY, Doyle Brunson, Eli Elezra, Thuy Doan, Tom durrrr Dwan.
Posted on 16 December 2009 by "T".
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.

"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. 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|

| thats a very good idea probs for the pro|

| 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|
