Sometimes, few hasty decisions, taken in the spur of the moment turn out to be a blunder.  Age isn’t a factor that regulates the pragmatism of such decisions. Such a mistake had been committed by Doyle Brunson and his associate, near about a decade ago; something he regrets even today.

Recently, this epitome of Poker revealed on his poker handle that how, a decade back, he had turned down a sum of $230 million, for a poker site that was supposed to bear his name – The deal was turned down, assuming that their site would be even more pricey in the recent future and the amount is not worth the brand value of Brunson as a professional poker player.

Unfortunately, with the implementation of 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), their site became worthless.

The poker site Doylesroom was later sold to Americas Cardroom in 2011. The selling price was not disclosed, leaving Brunson and his associate, 50% shareholder of the company, regretting, turning down a 9 figure sum out of sheer incapability of prediction.
