Doyle Brunson wins the biggest prize pool in World Poker Tour history! The Bicycle Casino's Legends of Poker Tournament, the Los Angeles stop on the phenomenal WORLD POKER TOUR, attracted 667 players for a $3,335,000 prize pool, the largest ever, doubling the size and the prize pool of the casino's WPT event last season.

Last year's event drew 309 players and generated a prize pool of $1,545,000, with the winner taking home $579,375. The 2004 winner of the $5,000 buy-in event was none other than poker legend, Doyle Brunson, thrilled to be taking home $1,173,260!

Doyle "Texas Dolly" Brunson is an old-time road gambler who's been playing poker for 50 years. He has 2 World Series Championships and was the first to pass the million-dollar mark at the WSOP and is considered savvy pro and a gentleman at the tables.
