The fate of Doyles Room

Like a few poker pros before him, Doyle Bruson had a poker room carrying his name. One other name that comes to mind is Chan Poker which was owned by Johnny Chan, one of the greatest poker player immortalized in the iconic poker movie "Rounders". But unfortunately this room close a few years ago.

Sadly Doyle's Room faced the same fate recently after the Black Monday of poker in May 2011 when the FBI and DOJ seized a few .com gambling domains including

Like a few other rooms including pokerstars and full tilt poker, Doyles room is accused of conducting an illegal gambling business in violation of UIGEA, the 2006 law controlling how poker operators perform their business in the United States. By the way note that playing poker online is allowed (in most states), but what these rooms are believed to have done is illegal move gambling bankrolls and balances.

Interestingly Doyle Bruson himself had cut ties with the online room just a few weeks before the event, because he was not satisfied with the way the operations were run according to him. Great timing! Was it pure luck or was the information leaked to him? It is hard to tell but one thing is clear, Doyle kept his reputation unscathed by the US online poker crackdown.
