Flashback Friday - Doyle Brunson Wins His 10th Career WSOP Bracelet
Ten-time WSOP bracelet winner and two-time Main Event Champion Doyle Brunson had successful cancer surgery earlier this week.
To celebrate this great news, we take a look back at his tenth bracelet victory in this edition of Flashback Friday.
At the 2005 World Series of Poker, Doyle made the final table of the $5,000 Short-Handed NL Hold'em Event, now referred to as Six-Max. It was a stacked final consisting of Jason Lester, Ayaz Mahmood, Layne Flack, Scotty Nguyen and Minh Ly.
Ultimate, it was Doyle against Minh Ly for the title and Doyle held the chip lead when he looked down to 10-3. He shoved with the hand and was called by Ly holding K-Q.
Ly said that he had the best hand and Doyle simply quipped, "No, you just think you do."
Prior to the flop being deal, you just felt that it was going to be destiny for Doyle to win his 10th bracelet with 10-3. He won both his Main Event titles holding 10-2 as the final hand, so 10-3 for his 10th would be poetic.
The flop fell with a three to give Doyle a pair and that simple pair of threes would hold to give him his 10th career bracelet.
It would ultimately prove to be his final bracelet as Doyle is now effectively retired from tournament play.
