Doyle Brunson may be declared retired in his poker pro career according to his Wiki page, but he still is active in playing the game, and everyone who knows him is that one of his favorite venues to play at is inside the famous Bellagio's Bobby's poker room.
The 85-year-old 10-time WSOP bracelet winner, thanks to his recent poker session victories in said Bobby's Room, has now treated himself to a brand-new Cadillac Escalade (ranging from $75k to $100k), and he's thanking the poker players he defeated for this sweet ride.
Of course, not everybody was impressed (what can you expect from human nature, really). One commented that he did not appreciate the joke.
Brunson responded by saying, "Almost a 1,000 responses and yours was the only negative one. You got no sense of humor le touche."
Going by the nickname "Texas Dolly", Brunson may be retired from the pro poker circuit to spend more time with his wife, but he still plays every now and then at Bobby's Room - it's kind of like a hobby for him.
Some of the high-stakes poker players who he have possibly won money from at Bobby's Room that allowed him to buy himself an Escalade this month include the likes of Gus Hansen, Patrik Antonius, Daniel Negreanu and Dan Cates.
