– Doyle Brunson was one of the many football fans sitting on the edge of the seat yesterday watching the Super Bowl. He’s bet every Super Bowl ever played and this year was no different as he took the San Fransico 49ers for $175k.
– Last week, the Triton Poker Jeju series was postponed due to concerns of the coronavirus. But the fallout from the spread of the virus has been felt elsewhere in the region. In the gambling mecca of Macau, some casinos have been closed while other casinos are sparse and dealers are wearing masks.
I keep pressing my bet on 49er's. Im up to 175k…I should bet 26k more where it would be my biggest Super Bowl play ever. Please no more calls.
