Doyles Room ( www.DoylesRoom.com closed in 2011 ) is named after the godfather of poker, Doyle Brunson. Recently, Doyles Room shifted to the Cake Network. This transition has brought about a new platform that is rich in graphics, and overall functionality seems to have improved.

Players Opinion Of DoylesRoom.com Poker Site
Doyles Room is filled with loose, aggressive players. Many players are relatively new to the game and the competition is soft. This is especially true up to the $2/$4 stake level. The percentage of flops seen is extraordinarily high. The $1/$2 Texas Holdem (NL) game has a large chunk of the playing field that sees the flop over 45% of the time. The traffic can be rather slow at Doyles Room, but it's usually stable enough to keep a healthy pool of fish at the tables. An experienced, patient player can do really well at the $2/$4 to $5/$10 tables. Unfortunately, the high stake levels don't get nearly as much action.
