Monday, October 4, 2004 - In an exclusive agreement with poker legend Doyle Brunson, Blue Rock announces the launch of www.DoylesRoom.com. The agreement further provides for the exclusive distribution of Super/System 2 - A Course in Power Poker, the much-anticipated sequel to the milestone book, which is regarded as the premier text on poker strategy. Super/System 2 is only available through DoylesRoom.com.
President of Blue Rock, Eduardo Guillen, explained, “As part of our agreement with Mr. Brunson, www.DoylesRoom.com will be the only place poker enthusiasts will be able to obtain Super/System 2. We will be giving the book away as a free gift to people who come and play on our site. The original Super/System is universally considered to be the bible for poker players. Written over 26 years ago, it still outsells any other poker book ever written.”
Brunson, affectionately known as “Texas Dolly,” has reigned over five decades of poker and has sold over 300,000 copies of Super System around the world. His book has gained the respect of both fellow poker pros and serious amateurs who love the game. Brunson, one of the most important historic figures in the history of poker, continues to promote gambling as a respectable profession. As a member of the world-renowned Poker Hall of Fame, he has won nine gold bracelets in the World Series of Poker and has claimed poker’s biggest prize – the main-event World Championship back-to-back in 1976 and 1977.
The affiliation with www.DoylesRoom.com will mean that the site carries poker’s most prestigious and hard-to-win endorsement and that Brunson will serve as a key consultant. Also, onboard as a consultant is poker’s leading theorist, Mike Caro, known as the “Mad Genius of Poker.” The agreement has Mike Caro University of Poker online (at Poker1.com), complete with its entire library of advice, statistics, and courses, working in harmony with Doyle’s Room to provide the most potent combination of poker playing and education ever made available to the public.
When Doyle decided to write the sequel to Super System, he collaborated with the top players in the field. “I reached out to the best of the best for Super/System 2 and got them all to write a chapter on their specialty. Some of my contributors are Crandell Addington, Bobby Baldwin, Lyle Berman, Todd Brunson, Mike Caro, Mark Gregorich, Jennifer Harman, Daniel Negreanu, and Steve Zolotow,” Doyle elaborated, when asked about his book.
Mike Caro, who is also helping to market DoylesRoom.com, commented, “Doyle revolutionized the poker world over a quarter century ago with Super System, and he’s about to do it again with Super/System 2.”
DoylesRoom.com will be joining the Apex Poker Network, which already has over 150 other brands. This instantly provides customers of Doyle’s Room with a large selection of poker games and tournaments to participate in.
