Doyles Room Poker Review

Click here for 35% deposit match up to $135

Doyles Poker Room is a slick, comfortable poker room, like a favorite saloon, like its host, slick, comfortable. Chances are, unless you live in a cave, you've heard of poker legend Doyle "Texas Dolly" Brunson.

For him to have lent his name and image to this site, it's got to be good. Upon signup, players are invited to choose between a 25% signup bonus or Super System 2, the sequel to Doyle's bestselling poker tome, Super System. Take the book, if for no other reason then that it's only available at Doyles Poker Room; not at Amazon, not in stores. But really, take the book because Doyle Brunson is the cream of the crop.

And while you're waiting to accumulate enough "Action Points" to redeem this priceless volume, you can peruse the comprehensive collection of educational information available for free at Doyles Poker Room. But if that's not even enough to entice you, consider this. Doyle himself plays there. How could anyone pass up the opportunity to take a few chips from the most revered poker player alive? I ask you.
