2012 WSOP: Doyle Brunson plans on playing 4-5 events this year

Posted on Monday, June 04, 2012 by "T".
Doyle Brunson has played professionally for over 50 years and has managed to win 10 WSOP Gold Bracelets during this time (35 WSOP cashes in total). Brunson is turning 79 years old later this year and of course he doesn't have the same engery anymore to play lots of poker tournaments and traveling. However, it still seems like we will see him taking part in up to 5 events at this WSOP...  In [...]   Read more » 2012 WSOP: Doyle Brunson plans on playing 4-5 events this year

WSOP will let behind a big part of its history when Brunson decides not to play anymore, if that happens any time. He is not the pope, he doesn’t have to keep going to this just for being who he is, but having him around is very good publicity and I am sure he also appreciates all that side action surrounding him. By the way, he also appeared at the “Luck You” movie I’ve been watching this weekend, and when he got out of the tourney it was announced by the speaker and everyone got up clapping, does this happens for real? I bet it does and it must be an awesome moment.

well i believe wsop do try really hard to persuade doyle to come, i mean he is a living legend in a poker world, so to have him on the schedule is a great achievement for any tourney organizer. of course doyle enjoys this series himself imho- it's one of the greatest isn't it...interesting tourney selection btw

Thats a story you couldnt make up, brilliant.

I think his bet will pay off too, so many young guns in the field one of them is bound to win.

the best part is that doyle is not retiring from poker (i dont think he ever will). just because he cant compete in the main event profitably doesn't mean much. Doyle can play his game now. and we all know thats high stakes cash games. he has already done so much for the game, its time for him to enjoy the on his terms instead of sitting in at tournament table 16 hours a day.

It's nice to see that such an talented and most of all experienced poker player continue to play at wsop Big Smile

But again doyle was always an live poker player so i think wsop is like home for him Smile

Can't wait to see his results this year!
