Doyle Brunson’s Top Ten Movie Westerns of All-Time

 

 

Poker legend Doyle Brunson loves movie westerns.

So, at my request, he ranked his Top 60 movie westerns of all time.  We discussed his picks and filmed the conversation.  Here’s the much-anticipated final segment of that conversation, which includes Doyle’s “Top Ten” list.

This 30-minute video also includes a discussion of movies which didn’t make Doyle’s list.

My Interview with the Duke of Fremont Street

 

 

The Duke of Fremont Street is a cathedral to class.

If you’ve been around Las Vegas for any length of time, it’s likely you’ve seen the dapper gentleman dressed to the limit.  If not, then perhaps the 1938 Cadillac caught your attention.  From his earliest origins spent gambling along the Mississippi River all the way to the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip, the Duke has been there and always seems to be closing a deal.

In this 25-minute interview, I sat down with the Duke where we talked about his life, what he thinks of Las Vegas and casinos today, and where he thinks we’re all headed.  No surprise, the Duke delivers.  He holds nothing back.  He sounds just as cool as he looks.

Meeting Alex Singer for the first time gives me plenty of good reasons to be optimistic about the future.

The 29-year-old native of Portland, OR and now a proud resident of Las Vegas is running for a seat in the U.S. Congress, in Nevada’s highly-contested 3rd district.  He’s one of six candidates in the already-crowded Democratic field.  Republicans are fielding a similar number of candidates, making this into one of the most unpredictable races in the state.

I’ve been friends with Alex on social media ever since he announced his candidacy last year.  I’d also seen him speak briefly at a political rally here in Las Vegas.  However, until yesterday, we had never met face to face.

Tatiana Pasalic and I have done numerous interviews together.  Our most recent segment was posted at CalvinAyre.com, which appeared just a few days ago at their website.
