Biography

Todd Brunson may be the son of poker legend Doyle Brunson, but since turning pro himself after dropping out of Texas Tech University, Todd had put his own stamp on the poker world. Among his accolades, Todd has amassed over $3.2 million in career tournament earnings and owns his own WSOP gold bracelet.

Much like his father, most of Todds poker career has been spent playing cash games. Hes a regular in the highest limits around Las Vegas and has proven himself to be one of the best players in the world. Outside of the cash games where he has won millions, Todd has had significant success in tournaments.

His tournament results date back to 1990. In 1992, Todd cashed at the WSOP for this first time in two events. The following year in 1993, he won $198,000 after taking down the Jim Brady Month Championship Event. In 1994, he won another six figures in a tournament after taking down the $1,500 No-Limit Holdem Hall of Fame Poker Classic.

A few years went by without much stirring up the record books until 2000. This year, Brunson finished second to Ronnie Williams in the Jack Binion World Poker Open in Tunica for nearly $120,000. Two years later, five cashes at the WSOP rolled in. Immediately following the WSOP at the Festa al Lago II, Brunson won nearly $160,000 after taking down the $2,000 No-Limit Holdem event.

At the 2005 WSOP, Todd would get his hands on World Series gold for the first time, a feeling that his father has come to know all too well over the years. Toss took down the $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo event for over $255,000. The final table held Allen Kessler, Manny Minaya, and Allyn Jaffrey Shulman as some of Brunsons obstacles. His father Doyle also won a bracelet this year, making them the first father-son combo to both win bracelets in the same year. He also made two more WSOP final tables that year with an eighth- and a sixth-place finish for over $140,000 combined.

The year had continued success for Todd after he finished runner up in the Poker Superstars Inivitational Grand Final for $140,000. He was able to earn $95,000 total from winning some of the events preliminary matches as well.

To kick off 2006, Brunson won $500,000 at the Quarter Finalists Freeroll of the Poker Superstars Invitational. He also won the tournaments Grand Final for the second year in a row and earned himself another $400,000.

In 2007, Brunson placed in the money in six WSOP events. His best finish that year was a seventh place for over $50,000.

Off the felt, Todd has helped work with his father in the book Super/System 2. Todd wrote the seven-card stud hi-lo section of the book. Hes also contributed to Daniel Negreanus book and had some stories about him told in The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King.
