Todd Brunson: Bad beat in $2M pot!
The 42-year-old poker pro and son of legendary Doyle Brunson holds an impromptu Q&A on Twitter and tells about "the sickest beat ever!"
He's got the arguably most famous last name in the world of poker, but apart from that Todd Brunson is not a person that draws a lot of attention.

Todd Brunson estimates that he's won around $25,000,000 on cash games during a 20 year long career, that was built on $1/$2 Limit Hold'Em and then gradually expanded to cover more disciplines.
The biggest game of Brunson Jr.'s career was a $100,000/$200,000 game during the Corporations match against banking billionaire Andy Beal.
These days Todd typically plays cash games five days a week - only live - and at more modest rates ( than against Beal ).
He also reveals that his mom didn't really approve of his choice of livelihood, that his worst opponents are his dad Doyle and the now deceased Chip Reese - and that his longest winning streak in NLHE is 23 days.
