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.
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.
One of the privileges of working at the World Series of Poker every year is getting the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people, many who work in media.

I was lucky as a kid.
My parents took me to movies that mattered. We attended and watched some really cool films, many of them with meaningful messages that often made us think. Sure, we went to movies sometimes purely for laughs and entertainment. But when decision time came as to which movie to go and see, my parents pretty much treated me like an adult for as long as I can remember.
