The 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.
Last week, Max Pescatori and Todd Brunson were the talk of the poker community after news came out that they purchased the renowned Las Vegas restaurant named Roma Deli, situated a few miles west of the strip, at 5755 W Spring Mountain Road.
A 2016 Poker Hall of Fame inductee and winner of one WSOP bracelet, Todd Brunson is a known foodie who frequently posts photos of his meals at various restaurants on Twitter. He said he’ll have a 25% stake in the restaurant but does not share Pescatori’s ownership stake.
Massimiliano ‘Max’ Pescatori was born in Milan, Italy, so you’d bet that he knows a lot about authentic Italian-style cuisine. He is also known to be the most successful poker player in history from his home country. He has 4 WSOP bracelets and so far has won $4.2 million in live tournaments.
Multi-table tournament poker star Shaun Deeb just can't get himself away from yet another Twitter fight. Just last week, he came between Jason Mercier vs Brandon Cantu's heated comments on Twitter, and in the end had sided with his friend Mercier whilst delivered virtual blows to Cantu's credibility.
On Thursday, it was announced that Todd Brunson and Carlos Mortensen become the 51st and 52nd individuals to be inducted into Poker's most exclusive club! The two poker pros were nominated by the public and voted in by a 44-person panel made up of existing Poker Hall of Famers and a Blue Ribbon Media Panel.
Following a vetting of nominations by the PHOF Governing Council and a public nomination process, the 10 finalists for the 2016 Poker Hall Of Fame were announced last Friday. The finalists are: Chris Bjorin, Humberto Brenes, Todd Brunson, Eli Elezra, Bruno Fitoussi, Chris Moneymaker, Carlos Mortensen, Max Pescatori, Matt Savage and last but not least David 'Devilfish' Ulliott, who passed away in April last year after losing a short battle with cancer.
On Saturday, poker pro Kyle Loman tweeted about a massive game taking place in Bobby's Room at Bellagio in Las Vegas. Todd Brunson, son of poker legend Doyle Brunson, and Andy Beal, a Texas billionaire who made his fortune through real estate and banking, played heads-up limit hold'em with $50,000/$100,000 blinds. The two bought in for $5 million each and Brunson had all the chips in play at the end of the game.
No bracelet number 14 for Mr. Phil Hellmuth this time as he ended up in 6th place in Event #61: Seven Card Stud ($10,000 buy-in). Well, a big congratulations to Matt "Grapes" Grapenthien for besting an extremly tough field of 102 players to claim his first gold bracelet and $268,473 in prize money!
Grepenthien, a well respected online cash game grinder with some minor live tournament cashes dating back to 2004, overcame multiple chip disadvantages during the 9-hour final table, including the heads-up match against Todd Brunson.
The $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship attracted a field of 102 players when it started two days ago. Leading the way into the third and final day of the tournament is Todd Brunson, son of poker legend Doyle Brunson.
That's it for Day 1A of the 2014 World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star ($7,500 buy-in). 312 players signed up for the first day of the tournament and 117 of them had chips left when the tournament director called it a day after several hours of play. The overnight chip leader is Giorgio Medici with 254,600 and he received the $10,000 prize as the Day 1A chip leader. Other players that bagged up plenty of chips were Hai Tran (253,500), David Forster (225,200), Bryan Campanello (210,000), Mukul Pahuja (189,100), and Shooting Star David Chiu (174,000).
The Shooting Stars who were eliminated sometime during Day 1A and had their $2,5k bounty collected were Daniel Negreanu, Mike Sexton, Todd Brunson, Tony Dunst, Jay Farber, Joe Hachem, John Juanda, Phil Laak, Nam Le, Mike Matusow, Scotty Nguyen, Noah Schwartz, Erik Seidel, Jennifer Tilly, JC Tran, Paul Volpe, and Phil Hellmuth.
On Tuesday, Todd Brunson tweeted that a well-known poker figure had been caught red-handed stealing chips from another player at the Bellagio. The victim of the crime (a player from Japan, described as "The Jap") noticed that $800 had gone missing from his pile of chips after returning from the bathroom. The dealer informed the floor manager, who in turn asked security to check the cameras. They quickly found out that three-time WSOP bracelet winner Chau Giang, 58, was the man behind the crime.
That bad beats happen online and live and to poker pros as well as "hobby players" is nothing new. However, some bad beats are worse than others. Todd Brunson, son of the living poker legend Doyle Brunson, has been quite active on Twitter lately. A few days ago, he was bored and asked his followers to ask him questions. One of the questions was "What is the sickest bad beat you ever had?".
The billionaire, Andy Beal, needed a big challenge back in 2001, and therefore he decided to play against some of the world's best poker players with sky high stakes. Even though he knew he was not even close to as good as the pros, he thought that betting huge amounts of money which the pros couldn't afford to lose would give him a great advantage at the table.
Anyhow, Andy Beal, played against players like Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, Todd Brunson, Jennifer Harman, and Gus Hansen. In the beginning nothing worked for the American billionaire and he lost around about 3.4 million dollars to Jennifer Harman, Todd Bruson and other pros.
