Todd Brunson

Being the son of legendary Doyle Brunson, one might think Todd Brunson learned to play poker before he learned to walk. But it wasn’t until after high school that Brunson played in his first poker game when he accompanied his father to Australia. Brunson has stepped out of his father’s shadow, racking up 42 World Series of Poker cashes including one bracelet to cement his own legacy. As part of the “Corporation,” it’s said Brunson won over $13.5 million for the group in a two-day span as chronicled in the 2005 book, The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King.
