Doyle's poker career was fraught with difficulties because, in his day, Poker was not yet recognized. He is not as happy as the online players now, who can just sit behind the computer and make money. At that time, poker was often organized by criminal lines, especially those played with large numbers. Doyle recounted that he was repeatedly threatened with a gun, robbed and then beaten for winning many times for playing poker.
Fortunately for Doyle, poker gradually became popular, and legal poker tournaments began to be held, most notably the WSOP starting in 1970. Doyle won the WSOP Main Event 2 years in a row in 1976 and 1977. Both times he won with hand 2 10, and this hand was later called Doyle Brunson's hand. In 1978, Doyle wrote Super System, a book on Poker strategy that is considered a classic today.
