I remember Chip Reese saying he would have gone for WSOP bracelets if he knew they'd become such a big thing. Doyle has a ton of bracelets playing in a lot less WSOP events than Phil the last 20 years. I'm not sure he matched phil even with him playing since 1902. Is Phil simply a grinder? Or is he a legend?"
