Bryan Devonshire is the Ron Swanson of the Poker World

Published on 13 July 2014 by Pokerlistings 282

Bryan "Devo" Devonshire might be shaggy and wear a hat but it's clear he's the Ron Swanson of poker. Devonshire has the kind of calm and collected mastery of manhood that's only possible through a liberal helping of working with your hands, spending time outside and alcohol. Great men have achieved this level throughout history but thanks to Ron Swanson it's a goal no longer reserved only for those who read Hemingway or Steinbeck. Our hope is that Devonshire will win the WSOP Main Event and act as an example for a new generation of poker players who so desperately need a strong male role model to show there's a big wide world out there beyond the poker room, a world of manly things like river-rafting, beards and making love to a woman.
