1) Doyle: Doesn't Quit Twitter, Gets to Work
It's been a tough couple of weeks for the Godfather of Poker.
You don't get a nickname like "The Godfather," though, if you're one who gives up easily and Brunson proved he's still got a little fight left in him this week too, despite some doubts about his health/Twitter.
I started twitter as a lark, it was fun. I thought it an amusing way of recording my random thoughts and enjoyed the fun tweets.#notthis— Doyle Brunson (@TexDolly) February 20, 2015
I hear the mixed games are really good in Vegas. Guess it's time to quit worrying about health issues and get back to my job.#angrycrushing— Doyle Brunson (@TexDolly) February 22, 2015
Hold on to your bankrolls, Vegas pros. Doyle's coming for you.
2) JRB Owns an Empty Shell in the Sky
One of those Vegas regs who might want to steer clear of the mixed games this week?
Perennial poker punching bag Jean-Robert Bellande, whose been known to frequent the big games and, also frequently, leave without any money.
His down-on-his-luck spirit is hard to quash, though, and JRB kept his followers laughing this weekend with this hilarious pic of a penthouse he bought during one of his salad-day periods:
We're guessing it's in the stalled Fontainebleu tower, which might be nothing more than a teardown now.
Keep kicking at that football, JRB.
