The poker maestro also authored books like Super System and Super System 2.

Doyle Brunson Hand

Yes, we know it is T2, but are you aware of the story behind this poker hand being called the Doyle Brunson Hand? For the unversed, Brunson played a hand against heads-up rival Jesse Alto in the WSOP Main Event in 1976. The WPT Ambassador had T2s and his opponent was playing with AJ.

The flop brought A J T and Alto hit two pairs. Brunson exploited his rival’s weakness of being a relatively new player in the field and went all-in with just one pair. But poker gods blessed the talented pro with runner-runner twos which gave him the winning full house. This is what led to the T2 starting hand being called the Doyle Brunson Hand. We couldn’t agree more on this accolade being given to the Las Vegas resident.
