Doyle Brunson inspirational speech for playing Poker

Doyle Brunson (born August 10, 1933 in Longworth, Fisher County, Texas) is an iconic American poker player who has played professionally for over 50 years.[1] He is the first two-time World Series of Poker main event champion to win consecutively,[2] a Poker Hall of Fame inductee, and the author of several highly influential books on poker.

Brunson is the first player to earn million in poker tournaments and has won ten World Series of Poker bracelets throughout his career, tied with Johnny Chan for second all-time, one behind Phil Hellmuth’s 11. He is also one of only four players to have won the Main Event at the World Series of Poker multiple times, which he did in 1976 and 1977. In addition, he is the first of five players to win both the WSOP Main Event and a World Poker Tour title. In January 2006, BLUFF magazine voted Brunson the #1 most influential force in the world of poker.
