LAS VEGAS, March 09, 2005 -- Doyle Brunson, the biggest name in competitive poker, will share the secrets of his success with fans during a one-on-one interview session on March 15 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Brunson, who won back-to-back World Series of Poker (WSOP) titles in 1976 and 1977 and owns a total of nine World Series of Poker gold bracelets, will be the subject of a "Heads-Up: Interview with a Poker Legend" session hosted at the Rio's I-Bar beginning at 1p.m. Admission is free.
The interview, hosted by World Series of Poker Media Director Nolan Dalla, will cover Brunson's background and history in the game. Brunson will also share strategy tips for aspiring pros and other fans who want to improve their play.
The author of "Super System," the definitive book on poker, Brunson is uniquely qualified to coach the game's enthusiasts and the logical choice as the first guest in a series of "Heads-Up" interviews that will take place at various Harrah's-operated casinos throughout the World Series of Poker Circuit. Brunson also launched the "Heads-Up" series at Harrah's Rincon outside San Diego during the World Series of Poker Circuit stop at that casino.
Following the hour-long interview at the Rio, Brunson will answer questions directly from the audience and sign copies of "Super System 2," the follow up to his best-selling original.
