5His nickname "Texas Dolly" came from Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder, who incorrectly read his name on a sheet of paper. Snyder was supposed to announce Brunson as "Texas Doyle" (since he was from the state of Texas), but instead he said "Texas Dolly" and the name stuck.

7When he won his record tenth World Series of Poker bracelet in 2005, he won it somewhat by mistake on his part. The starting hand that he held was 10-3, and he mistook it for his trademark hand, 10-2. When he re-raised and pushed all in and was called by his opponent, he saw that he was holding a 10-3 and admitted at the table "I thought it was the 10-2."

1In a big no-limit game against tough opponents, you should never show a quality lay-down unless you intend to call in the future. When you are floundering around in the ocean, it's stupid to drop bait for the sharks.
2I'm a gambler. I'll always be one. I couldn't be anything else. So, my life will always be full of wins and losses. I wouldn't have it any other way. It's exciting. There's never been a dull moment in my life.
