Doyle Brunson

Legendary poker player Doyle Brunson, who at one time received the corporate nickname "Texas Dolly", is best known for being a professional poker player even before the game appeared in Vegas.

At the same time, the motives of the person who made such a statement are still unknown. It is possible that it could just be one of those people who saw Brunson on his signature television show. Undoubtedly, among them there could be such a person who decided to joke evil by filing a false statement to the police.
