Brunson 10 members Alec Torelli leaves Doyles Room after 6 months

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jan 18, 2010 Posted in Online Poker News | No Comments »

Doyles Room is now looking for six more members to complete their Brunson 10 –a group of poker pros handpicked by Doyle Brunson to represent the site—after Alec “traheho” Torelli announced he would be leaving the site to take on a new project –rumored to be a new poker site on the Everleaf Poker Network.

The loss of “traheho” will likely hurt the brand, since of the five announced members of the Brunson 10 –now down to four—Torelli had the best live tournament results of the bunch, even though Torelli was probably only the 3rd most famous member of the group, behind Chris “moorman1” Moorman and Daniel “Ansky” Stern.

Doyles Room, and Brunson himself, have been meticulous when it comes to choosing the Brunson 10, carefully selecting the players over a period of time, and the loss of one of their first choices has to be a major blow to the poker site.
