Doyle Brunson’s autobiography out November 11th

Wednesday, 4 November 2009

If the introduction chapters to legendary poker book Super/System detailing the early life and career of Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson weren’t enough for you, you’re in for a treat.

It has been announced that the septuagenarian 10-time bracelet-winner’s autobiography, Godfather of Poker, is being released in the USA and Canada on November 11. The book tells in detail Doyle’s aspirations as a college basketball star, the moment when he realised poker was his calling and many other inspiring and shocking events throughout his life including a battle with cancer, losing a child and more armed robberies than any one man should have to put up with.

Brunson details how he first discovered Hold ‘em in 1958, almost 30 years before Tom Dwan was even born, much less raising him out of pots on High Stakes Poker. He chronicles all ten of his World Series of Poker bracelets including his dual Main Event wins back in the 1970s.
