, the Godfather of modern poker! Super System
unlocked the mysteries of poker and introduced No Limit Hold Em as a mainstream parlor game, not just an exotic variation for Vegas and high-stakes rounder rooms. The elder statesman of the game, he never fails to carry himself with grace, dignity, and good humor. It was pure Doyle when he lost his temper after a bust-out in season one of High Stakes Poker and called Ted Forest "that idiot", only to take advantage of the first on-air opportunity in season two to apologize to Ted face-to-face across the table.
And even at age 74, he's still one of the deadliest big game players in the world. Final table at the 2007 WSOP
World Championship Pot Limit Omaha and a cash in the $5,000 HORSE. Still plays almost every day in the legendary "Big Game" in "Bobby's Room" at the Bellagio, where the minimum buy-in is $80K and players routinely sit down with $200K-$300K. Doyle has permanently retired the title of "The Man". There should be a special rake at every casino table, television tournament, and home game in America that's sent straight to Doyle to say "thanks for everything".
