Doyles Room was an online poker room founded in 2004. Originally on the Tribeca Poker Network (now part of the Playtech iPoker network), Doyles Room moved to the Microgaming (Prima) Poker Network in 2007, then to the Cake Poker Network in January 2009, and most recently to the Yatahay Network in January 2011.

Named for Doyle Brunson, the 10-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, the Doyle Brunson Poker Network is licensed and incorporated in Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles with the website also stating "Letter of Intent from Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority Received".

Doyles Room offers a number of poker card game options, including Texas hold 'em, Badugi, Seven-card stud, and Omaha hold 'em. Additionally, the poker room hosts regular tournaments featuring poker personalities such as Doyle Brunson, Mike Caro, Todd Brunson, Hoyt Corkins and Cyndy Violette.[1]

On May 26, 2011, Doyles Room was seized in accordance with an investigation into the violation of online gambling laws. After the events of April 15, Doyle Brunson had decided to cut ties with Doyles Room and is unlikely to be affected.[2]

In October 2011, Doyles Room was acquired by Americas Cardroom.[3]
