Holiday Greetings From Poker Pro Doyle Brunson

DOYLISM OF THE DAY: "A minute of thought is worth more than an hour of talk."

Even though the tournaments at the Bellagio are by far the best, it still seems to me that the rewards are greater in the cash games.  I played 25 hours, 3 days, beat 432 players and won less than $10,000.  I realize that coming in #66 gave me a great shot at winning the 1.5 million first prize, but there are just so many good tournament players now it is hard to win consistently.  Maybe it's time for me to back off from tournaments because I was actually tired at the end of the 3rd day.  I'm playing tomorrow in the $200,000 buy-in cash game on High Stakes Poker and I'm looking forward to that.  I've won in each one of the previous 12 I've played in.  At least it will be real poker for real money.

Layne Flack came up to me and insisted he had been misquoted in the CardPlayer article about buying a bracelet.  He said they were printing a retraction of his statement.  I have no reason to not believe Layne.  We have always been friends and I probably reacted too quickly.  I should have learned by now not to pay any attention to what people say.  Anyway, I'm putting it behind me and I'm sure Layne will do also.

I don't know if anyone else notices, but Andy Bloch seems to go deep in every tournament.  It's pretty impressive when you consider he doesn't really have a poker background like most of the great players have.  I hope he wins a few where he will be recognized a little more for his excellent play.

It's time to go out for the dreaded Christmas shopping for my family.  I love Christmas because the family gets together, but we have taken the gift giving to the extreme with the stacks of presents under our tree.  We need to remember what Christmas is all about and I wish everyone Happy Holidays!

Daniel:  Do you see any improvement today?

Caddie:  Yes sir, you had your hair done.
