The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.
November 1, 2021

What has happened to me? I've done four "Real Deal" shows, two "Poker After Dark", a TV cash game and every time I look up, someone wants me to do a charity tournament or be on some radio broadcast. I'm really getting discouraged with all this stuff. I really enjoy the cash games for TV, but the sit and gos on PAD aren't my cup of tea. The structure is too slow and it seems I never hold a hand in them. I'm going to do my best to start promoting the cash game at the Bellagio. It seems the economy is reaching down to the poker games along with everything else.

I went the entire spring and summer and never hit a golf ball. There were some good action golf matches I would have loved to been a part of, but along with all my other commitments, my leg is getting worse and I'm determined to get over to the Jobe Clinic and try to get it fixed. Trouble is, that is no guarantee for success.

I just read where Michelle Obama is redistributing the wealth by having a $447 lunch at the Hilton Hotel in New York. She had lobster, caviar and champagne. I guess she was really hungry!

I went to a site called and watched Vegas history. It had a video of the late Puggy Pearson talking about the "old days". I had a lump in my throat as I watched and remembered when I first came to Vegas. Puggy was the man in those days and all the games revolved around him. He was a totally fearless all around player and should be remembered as one of the pioneers of poker as we know it today. He was a ruthless player who would do anything to win but he never pretended to be anything else. I miss the guy, I would have loved seeing him and Phil Ivey go at it.

We only have a few days left to get out and vote. If you don't vote, you don't have the right to complain about the economy or anything else. I'm Doyle Brunson and I approve this message :)

Caddie: Sir, how are you playing?
Daniel: I'm hitting the woods great, but I'm having a terrible time getting out of them.

@EricOosterbeek No, it's just good natured ribbing. He is a cool guy.
