Doyle Brunson: He Was Known As the Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan, and Arnold Palmer of Poker

From a New York Times obit by Kathleen McElroy headlined “Doyne Brunson, Poker Champion Known as ‘Texas Dolly,’ Dies at 89”:

Doyle Brunson, a champion poker player who, in a long, lucrative and colorful career with a deck of cards, won 10 World Series of Poker events, including two back-to-back titles, and influenced countless players with his definitive guide to Texas hold ’em and other games, died in Las Vegas.

On his website, Mr. Brunson was once immodestly described as “the Babe Ruth, the Michael Jordan, and the Arnold Palmer of poker.”
