More of Doyle Brunson's Million (spoiler implied)

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

More of Doyle Brunson's Million (spoiler implied)

2. Doyle Brunson was the first person ever to officially earn a million dollars doing what?


If you knew the answer to that question, you might like the poker game show blog posts I've been doing this month, especially:

* http://www.thetapoker.com/jeopokerdy/ (3rd of 4)

The contestant known as "Carter Hu" may feel just a bit familiar...

I only needed eight clues for the blog post, but I couldn't help myself from writing all 61. You can read/play them here:

The other two blog posts were:

* http://www.thetapoker.com/poker-family-feud/ (1st of 4)
* http://www.thetapoker.com/who-wants-to-be-a-poker-millionaire/ (2nd of 4)

with "Wheel of Poker" (4th of 4) to follow this Friday.

I actually wrote a similar question to Ken's for Millionaire, but it didn't make my final edit:

Who was the first player to win a total of over a million dollars at the World Series of Poker in his career? Doyle Brunson (his fourth place finish in the 1982 Main Event pushed his career WSOP earnings to $1,063,875).


Enjoy!
