Christmas Gift Ideas for Poker Players

Okay so we know the usual gifts for poker players such as chip sets, playing cards, tables.  Gambling911.com will not offer any of those among our Christmas gift ideas for poker players.  In fact, there is only ONE gift any poker player (pro or beginner) needs this holiday season and probably does not have....it's the latest book from famed poker player Doyle Brunson:  The Godfather of Poker

The book just came out so chances are your friend or family member who plays poker probably doesn't have it yet but THEY WILL WANT IT.

The best part of all, the book is listed UNDER $20!!!!!!!!!!! If you are an economy conscious shopper like everyone else in the world right now, look no further than here to order Doyles' new book.  It's better than those stupid hats that some online poker sites make you play 20,000 hands of real cash poker before you qualify for one.  By then it's Easter!

Christmas gift ideas for poker players has never been easier and your loved one will never forget this precious little treasure. 

This is the story of Doyle Brunson, an American treasure and the greatest poker player of all time, is one for the ages. It's a story of guts and glory, of good luck and bad, of triumph and unspeakable tragedy, of courage and grace. He has survived whippings, gun fights, stabbings, mobsters (the real-life ones portrayed in the movie Casino), murderers, and a death sentence when, riddled with incurable cancer, he was given months to live by doctors who told him his hand was played out. Apparently, fate had never played poker with Brunson-he lived. Of a group of 32 men he played poker with in the tough alleys of Texas, just he and one other survived the treacherous perils of that life. A master of the bluff, his most outrageous bluff came after being pistol-whipped and told he's going to die with a gunman pointing a pistol at his forehead. Again, he lived. He's gambled for millions of dollars-and with his life against the real-life mobsters and killers made famous in the movie Casino-and was the biggest sports bettor in the world with a reputation of betting enormous sums of money on just about anything. Doyle has not only made more money at golf than anyone else until Tiger Woods came along, he once bet one million dollars on a single hole-that, when he was virtually wheelchair-bound and could barely stand. He's been hard-up flat broke more times than he's got fingers and has won millions of dollars just as many times. Brunson has seen it all: from the athletic dreams and a leg shattered by a freak injury which waylaid his path to the NBA (he was drafted by the Lakers), to the devastating death of his first-born daughter, to outrageous exploits like trying to discover Noah's Ark and raise the Titanic. Doyle's rollercoaster of a life defines the saying: Truth is stranger than fiction.  

Twice a winner of the prestigious World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, he's won millions and lost millions-sometimes in seconds-but decidedly more of the former than the latter. Brunson can still be found playing in the highest stakes poker games in the world, often with as much as one million dollars in front of him. To every one of the 250 million people worldwide who play poker each year, Doyle Brunson, is the legendary "Babe Ruth of Poker"-the greatest gambler and poker player who has ever lived.
