Doyle Brunson Can’t Find Robin Hood

I reluctantly left the beautiful city of Budapest and went to Nottingham for the English Open.  I flew into London and took a 2 ½ hour ride in a nice limo to get there.  Nottingham is a quaint small city and the people that held the event were extremely efficient and really took care of us.  Rake The Rake was the sponsor of the Open and there were over 200 entries.  Karim, the owner of Rake The Rake took care of the publicity for Doyles Poker Room.  He was a terrific host.

Phil Hellmuth was there but we didn't carry the US banner very well and we were both eliminated the first day.  I had eight touring pros at my table and they played extremely well.  Phil left for London but I decided to stay for a couple days more.

We took a ride up to Sherwood Forest looking for Robin Hood and his band but couldn't find him.  Lots of the business places carried Robin's name and his folklore tales were told everywhere we went.  One of the most interesting places we visited was the Nottingham Palace where Robin Hood's adversary, the Sheriff of Nottingham, lived in the olden days.  It was a big castle with underground caves that went for miles under the city.  Also, the oldest pub in England was dug into the rocks around the castle.

Now we are back in London for the WSOP Europe.  This damp, cold weather doesn't agree with me but we are having a big press party on Wednesday night to announce the signing of the fourth member of the Brunson 10.  I can't tell you his name but we are in his home country.

After the final event I can't wait to get back to Las Vegas and see Louise, Pam, and my dogs.  Todd and Anjela got here yesterday so maybe I won't be so homesick with them here.  Still, I'm ready for some Vegas sunshine!
