Brunson Pwns Tech Dorque

This is what happens when the CEO of a technology company butts heads with one of the greatest poker players of all time.

It is worth mentioning that Doyle Brunson has gotten creamed nearly every time he's invested in non-poker business dealings.

That was hilarious..... I REALLY thought the guy was gonna puke on the felt!!

Brunson is the king and a class act.

i'm confused - did Doyle win the pot times three (one for each river), or did he just let the river card get turned three times to show the 12 year old that the odds were that far against him?

They ran it three times, which means that there are three different rivers and each board is worth 1/3 of the pot. The pot itself doesn't change size. Doyle agreeing to run it three times was a classy move, since he was far ahead in the hand and this way gives the 12-year old some chance to reduce the loss. It's just a way of reducing variance, and is pretty common in medium to high stakes poker. It's usually done though when the two hands involved are closer to each other (rather than one being a 95% favorite, which was the case here).
