November 12, 2009 (PAP PR Wire) – The Brunson 10, Doyle Brunson’s team of elite poker pros, is now half complete thanks to the addition of a full-on star. DoylesRoom.com has confirmed what’s been widely speculated this past week. Dani “Ansky” Stern, a leading high-stakes online poker player, is the fifth member to join The Brunson 10.
Stated Doyle Brunson, “I’ve seen Ansky play on TV, I’ve seen him play online, and I’ve seen him talk poker like someone who’s been playing for decades. Dani “Anksy” Stern is the future of this game and I’m proud to have him on my team.”
Poker players and technology fans will recognize Dani Stern from the popular G4 television series, 2 Months, 2 Million. The show featured Stern and three other online poker players attempting to win $2 million playing online poker over a 2-month period as they lived a lifestyle that online poker players envy.
But Stern’s success is a lot more than just typical Hollywood smoke and mirrors. At just 22 years old, Stern has accomplished a lot playing online and in live tournaments, raking in close to $1 million in tournament winnings alone. That value does not include money won playing cash games.
At the 2009 WSOP, Stern finished strong in the second event of the series and won nearly $550,000. At the online poker tables, Dani Stern has performed consistently strong and is well respected for his in-depth poker knowledge.
The Brunson 10 originally launched with three members – Alec Torelli, Amit Makhija and Zachary Clark – all of whom began their poker careers online and achieved enormous success at live card rooms as well. In September, DoylesRoom.com scooped up Chris Moorman, a champion online poker from the UK.
With Stern’s addition to the team, there are five spots left on The Brunson 10. Doyle Brunson, poker’s biggest legend, will continue to handpick members for his group of young, elite poker players who are all on board to help bridge the gap between old-school poker and the new world that exists online.
