Doyle Brunson teams up with son Todd on New Poker Training Course

Tags: Doyle Brunson, poker books, Todd Brunson.
Posted on 03 August 2018 by "T".

credit: pokernews.comThe Brunson father-and-son tandem has launched an all-new online training course valued at $149.

Of course, there are plenty of online poker courses available, but only a few of them have the impressive poker background that the Brunsons have. The price isn't as expensive as one would expect considering the caliber of the people behind it, and the great thing about this course is that players will be able to obtain unique insight from the various strategies used by the Brunson's along with their years of professional poker experience.

Doyle Brunson, who will turn 85 years old on August 10, is a 10-time WSOP champ and Poker Hall of fame member and is pretty much considered royalty in the poker world. On the other hand, his son Todd Brunson has made a good reputation for himself in playing poker and has amassed more than $4.4 million in career winnings.

The father and son duo have now joined together to put their experience and skills in a new poker training course named Brunson Poker Pro, designed to definitely improve anyone's game. Valued at $149, the course comes with a book, 208 flash cards showing various in-play scenarios, and other helpful resources including an audio CD and several charts. They even launched a website that covers several other advanced strategies like tells, bluffs, combos & blockers, and board textures.

The Brunson Poker Pro website says, "Now you can learn the game of NL Texas Hold'em and its advanced strategies in a much shorter time and gain professional knowledge without playing for years. We are teaching poker the way your brain processes information faster by seeing, hearing, and doing."

Todd says that the purpose of this course is to take students well beyond the basics. He also explains that the course is a system that focuses on learning techniques that are tried, tested and proven to work. Teaming up with his father to make this possible is something that Todd has wanted to do for a few years now, but wasn't able to do so because of Doyle's hectic schedule.

Doyle said that he hopes the training program will be as helpful as the "Super/System: A Course in Power Poker" that he published around 40 years ago.

While Doyle Brunson announced at this summer's WSOP that he will retire, he now clarifies that he is not going to completely remove himself from playing the game. He said, "I like to have projects to keep me busy, and don't have time to do them all and still be a full-time poker player.  People took my retirement a little wrong, which was probably my fault.  I was talking about not playing any more WSOP events. I'll probably play in some capacity as long as I'm physically able."

Yes pochui and Mober, I think like you. The only way to make changes in our playing is a big personal commited with learn about it. There are a lot of information, that includes some tips for methodize our learning. If I would have these commitment, the only thing that I could need maybe some coaching sesion. Agree

well I have to admit that I am very skeptical of such so called courses which will make a total dork into a profitable poker player ready to crush any opponent just for a mere 149$ investment... kinda sounds lie a total bullsh1t to be honest

Oh it cannot be bullsh#t since Doyle's name in it, right? It cannot be that he's owing the IRS some money and need a quick cashgrab, right? After all Doyle learned to play poker on this level from flashcards and bettingcharts as well sixty years ago, right?
 CALICUL06/08/2018 13:34:19 GMT
It's a joy to hear as Doyle Brunson and his son Todd Brunson will sell at a very good price lessons about the texas holdem poker game. Those who will buy will learn much better and these professional poker players will earn some extra money. The old man refused a fabulous offer to sell his poker room and in this way can win something but not so much of course.
 maragatero08/08/2018 13:27:29 GMT
I don´t know CALICUL..do you like how they are playing? I don´t like it. I asume that I only know them trought the tv show of Poker Stars and the comparaision with Negregau is too much, but I still preffer another kind of player. I going to look for some new information about their player´s lifes, and then I´ll return here...
 CALICUL09/08/2018 14:04:48 GMT
Any professional player who teaches strategy lessons can teach you to make money from poker. This Doyle Brunson has a very good mind at his age and i'm sure his lessons are good to play live and make some money. Online is different and for that exista some free Internet lessons. If you really want to learn lessons about online poker you must to search and to read and after that to buy a few lessons with real money to see and understand how poker is playing. Good Luck for big money my friend. Smile
 Mober09/08/2018 16:32:47 GMT
You may get lessons or read books, but that doesnt me you will be successful,
at paying poker, making tons of money.
If that was the case every would make money out of it.
More have failed than the ones succeeded with it Smile

I believe practice and lots of hours playing is what can make you a good poker player....
 Gerimantas09/08/2018 20:16:52 GMT
Yes like many people in this forum for example mober, bowie, pochui say that it is not good to pay money to this course and think you are good poker player. I think you need to play many hands and of course read a lot and watch videos, but free information is good

I believe in coaching don't get me wrong but coaching should be about fixing the holes in your game not learning how to thrive in somebody else's system...
 CALICUL10/08/2018 14:15:58 GMT
If you learn strategy lessons and watch some videos you can make money easy, but not big money of course. 100 or 200 dolllars you will earn more easily, than you did before, provided you learned some of those lessons. Is you can not learn anything is bad, but if you learn, then you can play cash games and you will have satisfactions for sure. You can not learn poker well, if you play without learning strategy, because that's what i do, and poker did not bring me much satisfaction. I have to watch some videos and strategy if i want to make more money.
 maragatero10/08/2018 15:35:10 GMT
Yes bowie, that it is! In some moment of our learning process, when we did make a profill of playing where we feel comfortable, that a coaching make a good difference analysing your playing stage by stage for fix our holes. And CALICUL, you need to feel some raport with your master, if not the learning couldn´t be done Blink
 CALICUL11/08/2018 14:47:46 GMT
The truth is that these games have had a special charm in the past. I refer to Texas holdem poker. Now it's changed and no longer the pleasure of playing as i did it a few years ago. Games with blinds under 8 minutes they are also guilty. I like the blinds at 10 minutes but only in pokerstars but i quit playing there ( no confidence ). Now i play poker with small blinds and it's not so good for me. It is not easy to make a stack under these conditions. Damn
 maragatero11/08/2018 15:37:18 GMT
Well, when I returned to the poker online after a while without playing, I was noticed that the game has change and the "turbo", "super turbo", etc, option was the new way of play, I was confuse and unconfortable. I remember the feeling of rush and my nervious with it. But then I got used and now, when I find a game with 10 minutes blinds ....I'm getting bored! Big Smile
 CALICUL12/08/2018 14:50:11 GMT
The 10 minute blinds are almost the best, when you play real money, because you have time for maneuver. I have not been able to earn good money in turbo or hyper games. Honestly to be those games turbo or hyper, i do not like in real games, but in freerolls tournaments yes.
 maragatero12/08/2018 23:05:21 GMT
Well CALICUL my friend, I feeled this confusion in the begining of the new way of play. When the turbo and super turbo kind of game was starting I thought that these was a crazy way. How could you think a little in 3 or 4 minutes? I was really confused and unconfortable with that. But I used to play in a new way, with less thinking and more reflections, So, like you, I started to lose more frequently Disagree
 CALICUL13/08/2018 14:51:14 GMT
I can not play poker in this style. Players also play fast and i really do not like that. If i had played at one table, it was quite different, but when i playing at two or three tables, then a turbo game or 6 players per tables destroy me all concentration. I prefer to give up on turbo tournaments with real money. If i would buy Doyle Brunson's strategy, i will have to see how he touches this tactic.
 maragatero14/08/2018 00:26:16 GMT
Hahaha.. I maked the same answer (more or less) to your thread my friend CALICUL! Yesterday, I opened the first page of this thread and I thought that a rare thing was happened, because I remembered to have replied your sayings... Alzheimer is coming!! Big Smile One thing CALICUL, when I readed the news about the Brunsons I didn´t understood that they are making a training in online poker. I thought that they was doing a course of life poker Confused
 Serpang14/08/2018 05:39:05 GMT
I almost same character with you CALICUL, even I don't like MTT with small starting chips such as 2000 or 3000. I prefer min 5000 ,cause small starting chips give us similar pressure like turbo. But Irish opposite with us, I think Smile

of course Brunson give online training, maragatero, cause market online is bigger, unlimited place,lol
 Haymore27714/08/2018 10:31:10 GMT
Am so gateful to Doyle for all that he did
for poker - but this is unfortunately an outdated
attempt at generating extra revenue. Neither player
plays NL much nor can they beat online.
 pajalnick14/08/2018 10:58:35 GMT
of course it's just such a marketing trick and really improve the game will not work for many users of these courses ... but of course maybe someone will be able to get good information that will help in the game ..... but personally I think that this is just an attempt to make money without real benefits
 Mober14/08/2018 13:11:19 GMT
They are mentioning in the article that the price isnt expensive.
The truth is that the price they are charging is absolutely nothing for them.
149 USD for a lesson?
Is that even one blind for them, when they are playing ring games? Smile
 CALICUL14/08/2018 15:08:21 GMT
149 dollars is not too expensive but with english language is problem for me. I think it is worth paying for these lessons. Players learn poker strategy from someone who plays well at this age too but also for almost all his life. You have nothing to lose. $ 150 you recover after you learn some skills.

With $ 149 I could play 1490 sits and go of $ 0,10, I don´t know wich learning I prefer! Big Smile I insist that the coaching could be better. A master of poker that play with you or analyse your playing in a really cash game or tournament, and explain online what was your weakness and the holes in your sistem if you have Blink
 Gerimantas15/08/2018 06:55:09 GMT
I too say and think that it is a lot better to play more poker and make mistake and learn but of course there is good courses on internet and i think you can learn many new things from free information
 CALICUL16/08/2018 15:31:04 GMT
I consider as 1490 Sit N Go's is an immense loss of time. Much more than that, you can not learn poker so well with these games. I'm sure you can learn poker with these tips from Doyle Brunson but provided you are focused when reading about strategy and skills. 150 dollars you recover much easier after you learn. I saw players who earn weekly money a few hundred dollars and are not professionals. Blink
 maragatero17/08/2018 20:22:13 GMT
Well my friend, as I telled in other thread, I thinks that are some relation between tehe money, the time and the knowledge that you have, and these determinain the way that you play. And, of course, the level of crazy that you are Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Personally, as I have little money and a poor knowledge I decide to spend my time Blink
 CALICUL18/08/2018 15:50:17 GMT
You can play as you like my friend. Depending on the possibilities or the earnings you make. About others who want to learn strategy, they can choose to buy the lessons of Doyle Brunson or other variants which exists on the market. They can learn without buying anything. Each player is entitled to his / her opinions and choices. Smile
 erru910719/08/2018 16:16:25 GMT
I mean, I do get why some people want to take poker lessons. But me personally would never do it, no matter the cost or who's the coach. There are so many free lessons and articles put there, I see no point in paying for basically the same advise.
 Mober20/08/2018 14:31:44 GMT
Indeed. pretty much all the info is out there.
You can watch many videos on how to, fro poker and read some books also if you want.
You can even find online books for poker.
Paying for lessons is something that may do if they want to speed things up.
It is faster when there is interaction, and someone is always there, answering your
 CALICUL20/08/2018 16:45:00 GMT
If you learned a little from the internet or from video clips will help you but you do not have to think that you will get rich quickly. The problem is that: you can not find strategy on the internet so good if you do not buy it. One is to read it on the internet and the other is to buy it from the real professionals.
 maragatero20/08/2018 18:41:32 GMT
I think so. In internet there are a lot of information for know the game, Some free software that give you some kind of practice, like ICM trainer or Preflop Wizard in this site. Also you have some page that have especific forum where you can upload your hands to be analize or some live sesion where regular players play an open tourney...so, why we need to pay?

You are paying for the brand/name recognition alone and not for the actual content (just like you would in case of an overpriced iphone).
It's marketing 101, the Brunson's are basicaly selling themselves not their 'real knowledge'.
 CALICUL21/08/2018 16:49:06 GMT
What Doyle Brunson will do with his true value now ( real knowledge )? This man retires from poker and i think his boy he knows a lot of poker strategy. When you sell a book about poker you can not just sell stories and no strategy. He is too old to use them, and you have something to learn.
 maragatero21/08/2018 22:59:55 GMT
You have a matter with the oldies? We could make some glorius thing yet....like get up in the morning and walk!! Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile I, and another partner, said about these course that it´s no relevant. The Brunsons not are poker`s genius for me, and pay $ 149 for a thing that you have many in the net is not neccesary! Blink

Yeah, but his knowledge came from his own experience playing the game and not from courses/books/coaching session etc. See the difference?
This kind of knowledge cannot be passed, you have to learn it yourself.
 CALICUL22/08/2018 17:20:47 GMT
There are some cases of some players who have become professionals after they have learned poker from professionals players. If you are a person who understands, you can learn poker with $ 149... If you are not a person who understands then you can learn poker yourself with succes or not. Smile
 maragatero22/08/2018 23:56:34 GMT
Eventually you could learn on multiples source. You can acumulate a lot of information, books, forums, open class, etc. But I think that you have to find a moment for sintethise these learning. You have to resume all that you understood and, perhaps, you will need a tutor for give you an objetive diagnostic abou your playing Blink
 CALICUL23/08/2018 17:21:13 GMT
You can try to learn, and this thing it can take you a few good months. After that you will begin to put into practice what you have learned. There are plenty of good players who fight to earn nice money but not everyone will win because the fight is fierce. Winners and losers as in all competitions.
 maragatero24/08/2018 11:08:40 GMT
Step by step my friend CALICUL. I try to learn while I continue playing, and I try to put in practice little moves. For example, to be more agresive with broadways in some point of the game, or to make raise more frequently with pocket pair. Some little changes prove to be effective and they are consolidated in my game. Blink
 CALICUL24/08/2018 17:22:45 GMT
Poker Texas Holdem has grown over the last decade and continues to attract new players in every day, but there are many players who have left this industry, due to disappointments. Because they did not learn strategy they abandoned this game. The strategy counts very much and you my friend learn to win. Smile
 maragatero25/08/2018 14:41:06 GMT
I tell you again my friend..step by step! I´m near to understand some moves and little tips. I started to see some weakness in my traditional moves and some matters about positions and bets. The strategies are a long term objetive. I´m happy seeing that I´m getting better to my playing and, slowly, winning more often Blink
 CALICUL13/09/2018 19:16:37 GMT
I'm happy for you Maragatero my friend. If you are ambitious you can do something good for you. It is good that you can learn these things, in Spanish language to understand better. You have to learn but remember this thing: online poker needs to understand it better because is different. Here you get much faster cards that have to destroy other players or vice versa, because that's how they were setup by the system and in live poker is much harder to catch that. This is just one detail but you will see more. Good luck.
 maragatero19/09/2018 12:46:47 GMT
Thanks for your good wishes my dear friend CALICUL! I want it for you too... More than an ambitious, I think I have a goal. Having a goal or a project for these, all the path is illuminated. You know what you need to, so you know what looks for. Happen to me that I was reading the same articles that I did years ago, and I found there now things that I did not find at that time Smile
 CALICUL26/09/2018 22:20:49 GMT
Thank you very much for your good thoughts and i hope that the goddess fortune will help us to win some money again and again and... Cool We will not become professionals but at least to have acceptable profit. I think we will be pleased if this happens.
 maragatero26/09/2018 22:35:17 GMT
I look for information of Doyle B, and I have to say that I don´t know that he is a champion of the hall of fame and had a hard history in his life so, I beg your pardon. I only saw him in a tv show of poker playing against the kid Negreanu. He was playing like a rock (with all sense) and the comparison was really bad Disagree
 CALICUL27/09/2018 22:21:15 GMT
Doyle Brunson are ten WSOP bracelets, Phil Hellmuth 15, Phil Ivey 10, Daniel Negreanu only 6 but they are players who have earned a lot of money in poker. Professional players who made history in the world of texas poker hold'em. I read about 20 players with WSOP bracelets and Doyle Brunson is respected by poker players because he was a source of inspiration for many players.

 Gerimantas02/10/2018 04:44:11 GMT
I not think that number of bracelet win makes anything, because in past time it is a lot easier to win bracelet and lot less numbers of players on wsop tournaments and poker just started playing many bad players, now it is very hard to ein bracelet
 Mober02/10/2018 09:11:40 GMT
A good point there for the number of the players in the past.
It must have been easier back then to hit top positions.
At some point participation must have been quite higher, in the era when the online poker
But at the end it is the title that matters, regardless of the participation Smile

I find it is the same in many disciplines, sports being one example. I can remember forty years ago my local hockey team, the Montreal Canadiens, the top players would show up for training camp overweight and out of shape and they would be huffing and puffing for the first few games of the season. Now professional athletes tend to take better care of their bodies and train 12 months a year so that they can command better salaries and extend their playing careers, which adds up to several million dollars.

Poker information is much easier to come by these days, and the opportunity to play many hands from the comfort of your own home means you can bring your game up pretty quickly compared to many years ago when live play was the only thing available for poker players. Everybody at all levels and through all sports has brought up their level of involvement and intensity, and it makes it harder for everyone to advance to the next.
 CALICUL06/10/2018 23:15:20 GMT
You must have adequate training to play live or online poker.
Doyle Brunson and his boy are trying to earn some extra money with these lessons offered for those who will buy them.
About other sports is something else now, compared with to many years ago
Televisions offer more money and needed more professionalism.
