Sure enough no one it mourned harder than Doyle who, as the Players Championship kicked off, Tweeted about his poker ‘withdrawal’. Now it looks like he’s had a relapse.

Gus Hansen busted Doyle doing ‘a Fedor’. The Danish poker pro and internet star Instagrammed Doyle’s presence at the Big Game in Bobby’s Room, giving the game away on Doyle’s so called retirement.



Still a great summer!

Gus has had a pretty busy week himself nipping up and down the strip chasing the biggest action.

The high stakes pro and Instagram star has been sending out short Instagram videos from the nosebleed action at Bobby’s room this summer, but took a break this week instead checking in at the nosebleed action in Ivey’s room – the high stakes poker room at the Aria – where he took a beating bad enough to keep him from buying into Day 1 of the WSOP $50k Players Championship; but no defeat was gonna be big enough keep him from late regging Day 2, which he then did.

Unfortunately he did not make it to Day 3. So it was back to Bobby’s Room, Doyle and another great day in a great summer.
