Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson, a living legend and one of the greatest players to ever grace the felt, couldn’t be stopped when he held his new favorite hand. Most amazingly, Doyle held the pitiful 10-2 to win both WSOP titles. The 10-2 is an absolute trash hand in Texas Hold’em with almost zero potential value, even to someone of Brunson’s stature.

To this day, the 10-2 is now nicknamed the “Doyle Brunson hand” by poker players in cardrooms around the world. Doyle himself still has a fondness for playing the hand as much as possible. Who could blame him with his track record?
