The poker room stands out in Spezial, USA. For example, Doug Polk’s club, The Lodge, offers a bonus of $300 to players who win a hand and an additional bonus of $10,200 to players on a full house. Many rooms also host charity tournaments with nominal buy-ins.
Hundreds of players who played with the legend that day also felt the need to tell interesting stories. For example, Tom Dwan recalled Doyle’s multiple fake heart attacks:
“I know some of the old stories from the old days. Did you hear about the three times he faked a heart attack? People Trying to follow him. “He took him home and robbed him and stuff, I don’t remember exactly, I think at least twice, maybe three times, he faked a heart attack. ”
