Doyle Brunson

Named the “Doyle Brunson”, there are two particular hands in Texas Holdem that are given this nickname. These hands are 10-2 and A-Q. The former was named after the living poker legend because he won the World Series of Poker on this hand, which is traditionally considered to be a very poor starting hand. The latter is named after Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson for a very different reason. It’s the hand he hates the most, and will fold it often, even though it’s considered a strong preflop hand.
