Mike Caro is an old-school professional poker player who retains a large amount of mainstream appeal. In this week's interview, Mike recounts an experience with poker legend Doyle Brunson and executive Bobby Baldwin one afternoon in Lake Tahoe. He also discusses his most popular book to date: "Mike Caro's Book of Tells," which is still widely used by live poker players around the world.
Mike Caro is a representative of DoylesRoom, one of the fastest growing poker sites on the internet. Each week, PocketFives.com members can play in the Wednesday night Celebrity Bounty Tournament for a chance at serious bounty money. Knock out Mike Caro, Hoyt Corkins or Doyle Brunson, and you win $500. Knock two of them out in the same tournament and receive $5,000 or eliminate all three on the same night for $25,000. What's more, any P5'er who wins the Celebrity Bounty Tournament will automatically get to play heads-up against Doyle Brunson for $5,000 in an exclusive freeroll!
