Doyle Proves You Can Teach an Old Bodog New Tricks
The incomparable Doyle Brunson has just upped the ante in the high stakes game of movie stars, models and poker, and we’re now waiting to see if Bodog’s Calvin Ayre (seen below) has what it takes to come in for a raise of his own or will he fold in the presence of the Great One.
Alright, annoying poker metaphors aside, we’ve long called Bodog’s Ayre the “Hef of Online Gaming” but Doyle Brunson may just be moving in on the title and relegating Ayre to Joe Francis status as evidenced by the recent DoylesRoom.com-sponsored party at the new Bellago nightclub Light.
In attendance to honor Brunson were Hollywood A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio and Nicky Hilton, poker pros including Gus Hansen, Devilfish Ulliott, TJ Cloutier, Sam Farha and Jennifer and Marco Tranielllo and most importantly a new crop of DoylesRoom.com models, who were no doubt a 4-class upgrade from the unfortunate DoylesRoom.com fuglies we witnessed walking around during the 2005 WSOP and reported on here. Indeed, from the pics we’ve seen of this latest event, it looks to be much more like an Ayre-style affair than the DoylesRoom.com shindig we attended in July at the Rio.
