Doyle Brunson Shows Whose Boss Against Youngster Poker Prodigy

Poker legend Doyle Brunson went up against the youngest World Series of Poker bracelet winner and proved he still has his A Game.

Brunson took on last year's WSOPE winner, Scandinavian sensation Annette Obrestad, in a best-of-three No-Limit Hold'em heads-up match.

Bluff Magazine reports:

The opening game was a cagey affair, with both players trying to get a grip on the playing style of their foe. In the end the first chunky pot went to the Texan, and he eventually sealed the first win after half an hour.

The second game started much better for the young internet prodigy, but then luck proved to be against her. In two key hands, she lost her chip lead and then the match, first when an open ended straight draw got there on the turn for Obrestad, only to be beaten on the river by a higher straight. The final hand saw all the money go in on a jack high flop, with Annette's KJ far ahead of Doyle's J3. A three on the turn was cruel and brought the clash to a premature end, but it did show that there really isn't too much in these two players other than the turn of a card.
