Las Vegas, NV – June 4, 2009 – Poker Royalty, the poker industry’s leading representation agency, announced today that Poker Hall of Famer Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson has selected Poker Royalty for worldwide management and marketing representation across all major platforms, including media, sponsorship, licensing, commercial endorsements, and appearances.

Doyle Brunson is widely regarded as the “Patriarch of Modern Poker.” He is poker’s living legend, a Las Vegas giant and an American pop culture icon. He has likely done more to raise awareness and interest in the game of poker than any other person. No one is more respected or admired in the poker world.

“I’m a terrible businessman and deal maker so I’m glad to be able to turn over all that stuff to Brian,” said Doyle. “I respect what Poker Royalty’s accomplished and look forward to a bright future with them.”

Doyle Brunson currently holds 10 World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets, two of which are WSOP Main Event Championships in 1976 and 1977. He won both titles holding 10-2, a starting hand now known worldwide as the “Doyle Brunson.” Brunson changed the game of poker forever by writing his best selling book Super System.

“The opportunity to represent Doyle Brunson is a career highlight for me,” said Brian Balsbaugh, CEO & Founder of Poker Royalty. “If it weren’t for Doyle and his hard work the poker industry would not have evolved to the point where there could even be a Poker Royalty. I have no doubt we will do some big things together.”
