Dude bought a new Cadillac Escalade and Tweeted about it.
"New Escalade is beautiful, but maybe i'll get used to all the stuff on it," he wrote after taking delivery of the truck.
Then, a few days ago, a little of what we call foreshadowing:
"By the way, I loved my old Escalade but no comparison to my new one. It has 160 mph on the speedometer and it might really go that fast."
And then a few days later at the end of play on Day 2 of the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event, Brunson was caught apparently testing the limits of that speedometer.
"Still in with average chips. Todd is in 3rd place. got a freaking ticket coming home last night..Escalade runs too damn fast."
Unfortunately, Brunson has a little more than a speeding ticket to tilt him these days.
Texas Dolly busted out of the $50k HORSE event after three days of play, winding up just short of the money in the WSOP's most prestigious event.
To make matters worse, son Todd Brunson was eliminated just a few minutes into the fourth day of play, missing the money by an even narrower margin.
