Doyle Brunson Is Watching The Bachelor, Feels Like He Is 30 Years Old Again

After all of my complaining about how bad I was feeling, I found the cure.  I've been staying at home for the past 2-3 months because there haven't been any cash games to speak of and I'm really cutting down on my traveling to poker tournaments.  I've decided the tournaments have to come to me, here in Vegas, so I won't be in very many away. 

Anyways, I went down to the NBC Heads Up Championship, got beat my first match and went home.  Next day, there was a nice cash game.  I went and played and again the next day. Now I feel like a 30-year-old again.  I need to keep playing and remember an old Texas saying,  "Burn brightly but don't burn out."

Congrats to Huck Seed for winning the NBC Heads Up.  Huck has the best record of anyone in that tournament at 18-4.  Huck was the next "great player" 20 years ago but had some personal problems and was overlooked the past few years.  He is a cool guy and I hope he continues to keep his head on straight and wins.  The Heads Up Tournament is fast paced and I don't think it is a good barometer of how people play, but 18-4 is pretty impressive.  Eric Seidel is 0-5 in the tournament.  Does that mean Huck is better?  I'll let you answer that.

Huck beat Vanessa Rousso in the finals and I don't understand all the negative comments about Vanessa.  Anybody can beat anybody else but that don't take away from the fact she beat five pros who are considered to be pretty good.  I thought she played well against me.  Vanessa is obviously very smart and I think she should command everyone's respect for what she did.

I would never have believed that I would watch of the programs I have been watching on TV. I'm now into season 8 of Dallas DVDs.  I watched The Celebrity Apprentice because Annie Duke is on it. She kicked butt in the 2nd episode; she is a cinch to go a long way because she outclasses her competition.  Louise even had me watching The Bachelor, which I believe is the dumbest thing I've ever watched.  She likes it, and I guess that's why they make chocolate and vanilla.

In our weekly Bounty Tournament at Doylesroom.com, we often have celebrity bounties.  This week is Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Broadway star and Tony's daughter Meadow in the hit TV show, The Sopranos. I've met her three times and she is really a down to earth lady, not to mention gorgeous.  We had Nicky Hilton last week and both of these girls are pretty darn good poker players.  Come play with us at Doylesroom.com today.
