The ESPN Main Stage often gets overlooked on Day 1. After all, there are hundreds of tables spread across three rooms to follow, and the "mothership" contains just the one. With that said, we didn't want to ignore ten-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner and Poker Hall of Famer Doyle Brunson, who went to dinner with his daughter Pam and good friend Dewey Tomko.
We went to catch a hand with "Texas Dolly" but didn't find much. In the one hand we witnessed, four players, including Brunson, put in 900 each preflop to see a flop of . All four players checked and then three checks on the turn saw the button bet 1,500. The big blind folded and then Brunson did the same from early position. The hijack followed suit and the button won the pot.
Even after losing that small pot, Brunson is still sitting with a decent stack of 58,000.
