Doyle Brunson an unlikely poster boy

Doyle Brunson an unlikely poster boy

Monday, 1 February 2010

London’s commuters are well used to seeing adverts featuring poker players on the tube but a poker player appearing in an ad for an opera?

The new advert for the Royal Opera House could have poker lovers scratching their heads. The face staring out of tube ads for the new production of The Gambler certainly looks familiar but is it really who we think it is? In fact it’s a very young looking Doyle Brunson.

The new production is based on the classic Dostoevsky novel about a degenerate gambler and runs from 11th to 27th February. Whether Doyle will be coming back to London to give his considered opinion remains to be seen.
