The Super Bowl is a very popular event with poker players and Doyle Brunson has reason to celebrate more than most after winning $150,000 on the big game.
The underdog New Orleans Saints were the sentimental choice going into yesterday’s Super Bowl and one poker pro had more reason than most to cheer the Saints to victory. Thankfully for Doyle Brunson, Sean Payton’s men overturned the odds and defeated the favourite Indianapolis Colts to give Doyle Brunson a $150,000 payday. It’s the second year in succession that Brunson has won large betting on the NFL. Last year he collected $100,000 after backing the Colts to beat New England. The big cash payout may offer a welcome distraction for Brunson who has been forced to pull out of a number of events including the PartyPoker Premier League. It’s not Luke Schwartz’s mouth that has proved the problem, rather it is his own as Brunson needs some urgent dental surgery.Writing on his blog, Brunson said, “there is no use playing unless you are at your best. The competition has gotten so good you need to feel good physically as well as mentally to have a chance to win. My gut feeling is just chill out until the WSOP and try to have a big series. Could it be my age is finally catching up to me?"
