Show Notes

Episode 83: Remembering the Godfather of Poker.

"We don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing". Mr. Brunson was once immodestly described as “the Babe Ruth, the Michael Jordan, and the Arnold Palmer of poker.” The Overlay shares their thoughts on why Doyle had such an impact on the game of poker, how he maintained success at the highest levels of the game for decades, and how badly he will be missed.
