Doyle Brunson has been working hard to create an online poker team created of young players. The team is called the Brunson 10 and already consists of six players. Brunson has been searching for the past few months to create the team and now there are only four spots left.
The team consists of the following players: Zachary Clark, Amit Makhija, Dani Stern, Chris Moorman, Alex Kamberis and Steve Gross. The team was created by Brunson to bring the online poker room, Doyles Room, to a more current level with players. The young pros were added to the team for their expertise in the game as well as their impressive records.
Brunson is creating the team to bring a fresh look to the online poker room and the players now participate in the bounty tournaments as well as live events representing the site. Currently Doyles Room is holding a special competition to see who will be the next player on the team.
Poker pros David “Doc” Sands and Daniel “djk123” Kelly are competing for the next spot on the team. The players will be competing in the World Series of Poker and points will be given to the players as they compete in several events of the series.
At the end of the WSOP the player with the most points will be awarded the seat on the poker team. The competition is going to be very interesting as both players will have to be on top of their game to finish well in the WSOP events.
Kelly is just twenty one and will be making his first appearance at the WSOP. He will be competing in event #2 which is the $50,000 Poker Players Championship. He has an impressive record especially for his young age. During his career he has won over $4 million dollars. Kelly has won a WCOOP event as well as finished in fourth place at the WCOOP event as well.
Sands has a great record as well. He has earned over $2 million in his career and he has done well online during the FTOPS XII and has won a Sunday Majors event as well. Sands commented that he is very excited to compete for a spot on the poker team and he is confident that he will win the spot on the team.
This is a unique way for Doyles Room to add a new player to their team and will definitely be interesting to watch unfold. The contest takes the pressure out of Brunson’s hands as the decision will be made by which player does the best and has the most points during the Series. However I would not be surprised if Brunson decides to add both players to the team once the contest is over.
Either way, the contest is going to draw a great deal of attention to the online poker room, Doyles Room, as well as the online poker team the Brunson 10.
